I was talking to a friend and we were discussing some tips for women. She brought up a good point. The IPOD! She explained how it leaves women in a very bad position. The worst time to use one would be while walking through the park, or going for a jog around the block. Awareness is one of the most important things regarding self defense. You would never hear someone coming from behind, think twice before using your MP3 or IPOD again.
Speaking of awareness, the other tip I wanted to talk about was the way you walk. A woman that is walking with her head up and shoulders back is less likely to be a victim than a woman walking with her head down and shoulders forward. It’s all about confidence! Walk with your head up, look in all directions, and look confident.
