11/08/2010

Women can now discover the tips and techniques to help them fight off any assailant, thanks to a new DVD set just launched by Good Life Publications.

Online PR News – 08-November-2010 – – 85,000 women are raped each year in the UK* – don’t let it be you! Become stronger, tougher, braver and more confident, all in just three hours and from your own home with the new Self Defence for Women DVD set. Just released by UK company Good Life Publications, this three-DVD set teaches women how to avoid potentially dangerous situations and what to do if they are attacked. Produced in South Africa, the world’s crime capital, with self-defence expert Morne Swanepoel, Self Defence for Women is a must-have DVD for every savvy woman.
Women will feel a new sense of confidence after learning from Swanepoel both defence and counter-attack techniques. From eye-gouging to a knee in the groin, there are no holds barred in this instructive DVD. Each type of potential attack, and the best counter-attack, is discussed and clearly demonstrated so that women can learn the most effective ways to repel an aggressor. Hair grabs and headlocks, strangulation and grabbing, falling and groundfighting, knife attacks and pepper spray – it’s all covered by Swanepoel.

Also, learn the basics of the ‘RAD’(rape aggression defence) system, established in 1989 and regarded internationally as one best self-defence programmes available, attended by more than 300,000 women worldwide.
One in every 200 women in the UK reported having been raped in 2006* – totalling around 85,000 women and 230 new cases daily – yet fewer than 800 people were convicted of rape in the same year. In South Africa, where Self Defence for Women was produced, the numbers are even more alarming, with an estimated one in four women raped each year and more than 25% of men admitting to rape**.

It seems clear from these horrifying statistics that women should do whatever they can to reduce their chance of being assaulted or raped – and learning self-defence is one of the best methods of personal protection.
With Self Defence for Women, learn how to protect yourself in your own home and at your own pace. Find out how a simple keychain or bunch of keys can become a defensive weapon – and what other items could help you to become a less inviting target for an assailant. Walk with confidence in the knowledge that you have the ability to deal with almost any situation. The skills acquired from Self Defence for Women really could make the difference between life and death.
