Basic Techniques for Self-Defense

Here are some basic techniques that women can use for self-defense:

1. Escaping from a chokehold: If someone is choking you, the first thing you should do is try to get your chin down to protect your neck. Then, use your hands to pry their arms off your neck.

2. Escaping from a headlock: If someone has you in a headlock, tuck your chin down to protect your neck, then use your arms to pry their arms apart. Once their arms are apart, step forward and turn into them to break the headlock.

3. Escaping from a bear hug: If someone is bear hugging you from behind, drop your weight down and turn your hips to one side. This will make it difficult for them to lift you off the ground. Then, use your arms to pry their arms off your body.

Here are some tips for staying safe:


1. Be aware of your surroundings: Always be aware of your surroundings and avoid walking in dark or isolated areas.


2. Trust your instincts: If you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, trust your instincts and leave the situation.


3. Use your voice: If you feel threatened, use your voice to assert yourself and let the person know that you will not be a victim.


4. Practice self-defense: Practicing self-defense techniques, such as those taught in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, can give you the confidence and skills to defend yourself if necessary.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a great form of self-defense for women. It builds confidence, teaches practical self-defense techniques, improves fitness, and enhances situational awareness. By learning basic techniques and following some simple safety tips, women can feel more empowered and better equipped to defend themselves in any situation.
