Self-Defense Moves Mothers & Women

Arm Grab Escape

Someone is not taking a hint to leave you alone and firmly grabs you by the arm to stop you from leaving

Gain your balance, grab the wrist of the arm being grabbed then suddenly step away, pulling with the strength of both your arms and using your weight to pull free of the grip.

Hair Grab Escape

You have been grasped painfully by the hair.

Place your nearer hand on the elbow of the arm that is holding you and pull your body hard against it. this will reduce some of the pain. Step closer to person grabbing you, turning as you step and use the momentum of the turn and your weight to hit them in the middle of the face as many times as necessary.

Protection on the Ground

You have been pushed to the ground.

Protect yourself from the impact (a skill you will learn in the course) and immediately turn on one side, curling your knees towards your stomach and elbows towards your chest with your head tucked behind your forearms. From here it makes it more difficult for the aggressor, giving you opportunities to get back up and escape.

Escape From Underneath

An aggressor is sitting on top of you.

Place one hand behind their head and bring the foot of your opposite leg near your hips. Pull his head towards your shoulder then push upwards with your bend leg. This will give you space to begin to escape or even dislodge your aggressor. 

Escape From Being Held

Someone has wrapped their arms around your waist, from the front, despite your objections.

Bring your arms towards their shoulder. Place one arm horizontally against your aggressor throat then slap your own wrist hard as many times as necessary.
