Fact - there are many self defense programs available today for women and most of them fall short of accomplishing anything. However, the right program with Kyusho Self Defense For Women added to it can work wonders!
So is there specifically Kyusho Self Defense For Women? No there is not! The science of pressure point self defense will work for anyone who does the study correctly from a qualified teacher!
When I speak of this idea I am thinking of an all encompassing program that will truly benefit the student. However it does need to be a program that can and will work for anyone who take it!
But when it comes to violent crime women are targeted most often! Therefore we need to discuss the specific needs for women in this article.
One of the issues with this particular subject is much of what is taught is just plain ineffective or BAD. If you look at the image below you will see some of the things taught that simply do not work!
1) Knee to the groin. The idea is not bad, the application won't work! Unless the attacker is short the woman is putting herself in a BAD and unbalanced position, striking an area that will have a delay in response, plus increase the adrenaline level, and anger level of the attacker! Plus this area is instinctively defended!
Solution. Attack Spleen 11, which is a much better angle and will when hit with force drop the attacker and perhaps break the femur. Pressure Points at the knees are also a good target!
2) Elbow to the face. Even if she successfully hits ST-05 her body mechanics and leverage so bad there will be little to no affect! However she could very easily get a finger or thumb lock which when correctly applied will decrease the attackers cognitive thinking ability by 70%.
3) Stomping the Instep. I cannot believe this is even taught! The foot can take a lot of abuse! It does everyday! The large bone in the foot is very strong, plus do you really think the attacker is bare foot? This is just BAD.
The solution is the same, attack the fingers, thumb or hand. The 4th part of the image is OK, but I will discuss this more below.
In the image above the lady is going to use a palm strike to the face. If hard enough this can certainly slow things down however there are better places to strike. She is directly in the line of fire, with the attacker very much able to stop her from striking.
She could however turn the arm, get far more force and strike in the area of ST-05, or ST-09, ST-10 with an elbow. The movement would also help prevent the attacker from grabbing her arm before the strike.
Now each situation is different, but effectiveness of what is being taught is critical!
Now lets get on to solutions. The first step in any kind of course that hope to teach any group of people about self defense needs to begin with awareness. Unless people pay attention to their surroundings, to their environment they are inviting trouble, and greatly reducing their chance of survival!
But every day I see people walking down the streets, on their phones totally oblivious to everything going on around them. This invites an attack!
The next part of the equation when teaching Kyusho Self Defense For Women is escalation! You must learn to see that a potential problem is developing and have the tools and ability to deal with it!
You cannot wait till the situation become explosive! In the picture above a lot has gone wrong for things to come to this point!
In conclusion it is also very critical when teaching the subject of Kyusho Self Defense For Women and for anyone else you discuss the law. No matter who you are, what gender you are, what race you belong to, or any other groups you need to know the law as it pertains to self defense in your area!
Without this part of the training you can say or do the wrong thing and end up with your claim of self defense thrown out and charges laid against you.
It happens every day!
