Women's Self Defense - Defenses Against Bear Hugs
This section focuses on women's self-defense techniques that are used if an attacker has you in a bear hug (where he has wrapped his arms around you). These techniques are designed to help women to deal with potentially dangerous situations (such as muggings, rape scenarios, bullying, spousal abuse, etc.).
Most women should focus on techniques that allow them to escape a situation versus trying to overpower a possibly much larger, stronger and usually male attacker. These techniques must be practiced frequently and under the supervision of a trained instructor in order to be effective. Moreover, please try to avoid dangerous situations where you might be attacked (i.e. walking home drunk at night in an isolated area).
For additional self-defense techniques (i.e. defenses against kicks and punches), you should visit the main Self-Defense section.
