I started self defence training as an 11 year old after my Dad told me about Taekwondo, a martial art that was similar to Karate. Yes, I was a big fan of The Karate Kid and I was obsessed with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so getting me involved in martial arts wasn't hard. In fact, as soon as I saw my first sparring session I was convinced that I would also be fighting in competitions. Now, I look back, and there were many benefits of learning self defence as a child / teenager.

I have heard a lot of self defence advice in my 20+ years practicing martial arts. There are a many great tips and there are many… not so great tips. I’ve heard my share of average advice and by average I mean, it’s highly unlikely that I would ever be in a situation where this is the best option to take.

So, from a 32-year-old woman who has battled a few demons in the past and spends her time teaching others to do the same, I bring to you a REAL list of tactics that I use everyday. Some of these are so ingrained that I don't even think about doing them anymore. It just happens because that is my habit and you can learn to do them too.
