Have you ever had to deal with a stranger who made you feel uncomfortable or been threatened by a bully in the schoolyard? Did you know that there are things you can do now that will help you be better prepared the next time around?
Most people think self-defense means fighting, but the best defense has nothing to do with hitting, kicking, or punching. In this book, written by two prominent personal safety instructors, you will discover how to protect yourself by being aware of your surroundings and by using your body language to let people know you're not an easy target. There are ways to avoid being a victim of violence. This powerful handbook provides nonviolent solutions.
Donna Chaiet is the founder and president of Prepare, Inc., a national self-defense program for children and adults, and Francine Russell is an instructor with IMPACT Personal Safety, Inc., in Los Angeles.
Discusses various self-defense options which may be used when in an uncomfortable or unsafe situation and suggests what solutions might work in real life.
