Self-defence is learning the right attacking/defending moves to protect yourself in vulnerable or threatening moments. Provided that Pakistan is looking more and more unsafe for women by each day, self-defence training should become common for women in Pakistan. Here’s everything you need to know on the topic:

Self-defence Can Be Protected By Law

Self-defence is also protected by law. If in any case, you find yourself in a situation that threatens your physical self, you can fight back. Whatever happens in this regard will be protected by the law. However, provided that Pakistan’s justice system is also designed for men, don’t be too hopeful.

The point is, you can protect yourself against a predator and not be afraid in terms of the law. 

Self-Defence Tips

Self-defence is not about killing the predator. It’s about hurting them enough that you can escape. In such cases, focus on the vulnerable parts of the attacker. Parts such as eyes, nose, throat and groin.

If someone is coming at you from the front, a groin kick can save you. When you’re walking to your car, make sure your keys stick out from your palm so you can stab them with it. Avoid the chest and knees, they are ineffective areas.

Why Is It Necessary?

In the United States, a survey showed that 81 per cent of women reported experiencing some form of sexual harassment, assault, or both in their lifetime. If this is the case in the United States, we can not imagine the statistics for Pakistan. A country in which the law does not help and the society always turns the blaming finger towards the woman.

Learning self-defence will give women a little ease of mind when they walk alone from places, even busy ones. Moreover, if women start fighting back in a way that hurts men, they might start hesitating in attacking women. Self-defence is also important for the empowerment of women because they are no longer dependent on their male counterparts for protection.

Does Self-dense Always Work?

However, it is important to not fantasize about what self-defence really is. It teaches you how to fight but it doesn’t always work. The size difference between a female and a male can hinder the attack. Moreover, many times when women are attacked, they freeze out of fear and shock. As a result, they may be unable to use their skills.
