     It's time for another helpful self defense tip! In case you missed the news last week, I'm taking a self defense class on Monday nights and wanted to share the things I am learning with you. I'll be posting a new tip every week. Be sure to share them with you friends, mothers, aunts, sisters, daughters, etc!

WOMEN'S SELF DEFENSE TIP #2: Okay ladies, this week's tip is a no-brainer...Prevent attacks before they happen!! It sounds obvious, but many of us take our safety for granted. The most basic way to prevent attacks is with physical security mechanisms, such as locks, alarms, mace, even lights! Another way to prevent attacks is to remain aware of your surroundings at all times. Be conscious of the people and things around you, and avoid sketchy situations!

Women's Self Defense Tip #1

     The last few months have been a whirlwind since I moved to Daly City and started school at San Francisco State University. For fun, I am taking a personal self defense class on Monday nights with my roommate. Although it has little to do with jewelry, I wanted to share this valuable information with you! Every week I will be posting a new tip, so we can all learn to protect ourselves. Pass it on to all the women you know, young and old!

WOMEN'S SELF DEFENSE TIP #1: Don't bother kicking a male attacker in the groin. It's an easy area to block, and they've been learning to protect that area since they were about five years old. Instead, always kick at an attacker's knees!! They won't be likely to continue their attack with shattered knee caps or a dislocated knee!
