For the past several
months, crime against women in Delhi and Gurgaon has rapidly
snowballed into an alarming situation. We receive many enquires
and phone calls daily for special self defense programs for
women in Delhi and other metro cities.
In response to this, we have introduced customized self-defense
workshops for women.
From school-aged girls to housewives and working women, anyone
can learn a set of effective defense techniques taught by our
Besides learning these techniques, the
MOST IMPORTANT part is to prepare the mind to be stable
at all times and in all kinds of situations.
It has been observed that a person with a strong body and
excellent skills can often fail to defend himself because his
mind stops working in threatening situations. This is very
commonly seen in women.
The 3 MAJOR REASONS women are easy
1. Lack of Awareness - You MUST know where you are & what's
going on around you.
2. Body Language - Keep your head up, swing your arms while
walking, and stand straight up, confidently.
3. Wrong Place, Wrong Time - DON'T walk alone in a dark alley,
or drive alone in a bad neighborhood at night.
Tips that can save your life:
Be Aware - Act Smart - Be Safe
- Don't fight with
the attacker. Don't try to win, just try to escape and avoid the
situation. You may be hurt badly while fighting unless you have
a friend's help.
- Look confident.
People can spot a "victim posture" a mile away. Heads up,
shoulders back, stand straight, and look at those you meet while
passing in the eye.
- Be alert to the
people around you. If they look questionable, move on to another
place. Be judgmental.
Always believe in
your sixth sense.
- Always keep your
distance when walking past strangers on the street or in dark
- You'd better have a
charged cell phone to call for help
- Click picture or
make videos of a suspicious people and share with your family
and friends to discuss further actions.
- Install emergency
Applications on your smart phone to send the emergency help.
- If a mugger demands
your wallet or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM! Toss it away from
you. Chances are that he will be more interested in your wallet
or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN IN
THE OTHER DIRECTION!
- ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells
are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).
Getting into your car in a parking lot,
or parking garage:
- Try to park your
car near the lift or elevators
- Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the
passenger side floor, and in the back seat.
- If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the
passenger door. Most criminals attack their victims by pulling
them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into
- Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle,
and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat
nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or
work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS
ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY.
