The most effective method to remain safe on the off chance that you aren't truly ready to ensure yourself using physical methods of self defence
Be that as it may, in the event that you don't feel sure you're ready to genuinely deal with an attacker, play it safe:

Call the police. Locate a sufficiently bright open region and dial your emergency contact or your nearby crisis administrations in the event that you feel you're in harm's way.
Convey insurance. Regardless of whether pepper splash, an individual wellbeing caution, or a lipstick taser, self-preservation apparatuses can assist you with feeling more calm and safe.

Figure out how to create limits, even with individuals you know

Things to keep in mind about defending oneself:

Self Defence

Have you ever thought of enrolling your daughter in a self-defence class? Not only is it great exercise, but this knowledge may also save her life some day. The percentage of women in India who can defend themselves in case of an attack is dismally small, although crime against women is constantly on the rise. Your daughter doesn't need to be a karate champion to ward off an attacker; even a few basic moves can help. Remember, assailants are rarely trained to fight. They are simply relying on the belief that women are weaker than they are by virtue of their sex. A few smart moves can give your daughter an advantage.

Pepper Spray

Invest in a bottle of pepper spray, and let your daughter carry it around in her bag. The only problem is that the spray is bulky, and it may not fit into smaller evening bags. As a result, she may not have it on her at the time she needs it the most. However, encourage her to carry it around as far as possible. Spraying an assailant with pepper spray renders him helpless for at least a couple of minutes, during which time your daughter can make a quick getaway.

Cell Phone

Give your daughter a cell phone. Don't think that by doing so you may be spoiling her. Instead, realise that when your daughter has a cell phone, it will always be easy for you to track her down. If she is on the way back from somewhere and her car gets stranded in the dark, she can lock the doors and call you, while she waits inside. Help will always be just a phone call away.


Tell your daughter to always follow her intuition. There may often be times when your daughter feels a slight apprehension when speaking to someone, but she ignores the feeling because she doesn't want to appear rude. If you have to instil one thought in your daughter, let it be this: It's better to be rude than raped or dead. If someone she is speaking to makes her feel even a little uncomfortable, tell her that she should feel free to simply excuse herself and walk away.

Main Door

She should never open the door to a stranger. When delivery boys come home, under no circumstances should she let them in, or leave the door open when going to get change. She must always, always shut the door, even if it seems rude.
One of the smartest things you can do is to have a double door - so you need never open the second door to someone you don't know. If it is the postman, delivery boy or anyone else, your daughter can just open the inner door and accept any packages through the openings in the second door. Let the second door have large enough openings for packages to get through, and so your child can have a conversation through the grills without feeling compelled to open the door.

Concentrate on the defenceless zones

Concentrate on your assailant's powerless spots: eyes, nose, throat, and crotch. Point the entirety of the moves underneath at one or a few of these zones to have greatest effect.

Keep away from THE CHEST AND KNEES

Try not to focus on the chest, as that will in general be inadequate. Focusing on the knees requires a particular kick that can be unreasonably unsafe for the normal individual.
Utilize the entirety of your power and animosity during execution. Make it realized that you're a ground-breaking woman. Utilize your voice, as well. Be uproarious to threaten the assailant and make consideration in the event that someone is close by.


As teenagers and grown-ups we become progressively focused on our gadgets, frequently being ignorant of what's around us. You work with an accomplished teacher to create methodologies that work best for you against an assortment of rivals, assaults and circumstances. Most importantly, ladies' self defence shows us mindfulness, avoidance and awareness.
  • Take Control for Yourself and Other Women

    Ladies' self protection is tied in with assuming control over wellbeing. Taking a Self barrier class is our opportunity to make a move in our own lives, to assume responsibility for our own present and future. The truth of the matter is, wrongdoings against ladies occur and will keep on occurring. Ladies' self protection classes can help forestall us turning out to be casualties. Realizing how to safeguard ourselves gives us a superior possibility of halting assaults and in any event, diminishing assaults against ladies later on.
  • Great Exercise!

    Self preservation classes, toward the day's end, can likewise be an incredible wellspring of activity, working a scope of essential pieces of your body. It not just activities your body truly, it additionally practices your brain, responses and reflexes. It is likewise a staggering method of practicing your own capacity and certainty. You don't need to be genuinely solid to be fruitful at self-protection. On the off chance that you can figure out how to effectively get away or forestall a hazardous circumstance, at that point you are practicing acceptable self-preservation.
  • Be capable

    As ladies, we are continually urged to be responsible for ourselves. We are advised to be responsible for our accounts. We are advised to represent our pressure and urged to be responsible for our wellbeing, weight and diet, alongside our exercises and wellness. It makes sense that we ought to be responsible for our self protection. Is it actually so difficult to add a self defence class to our everyday practice as we would include the most recent yoga, pilates or work out prevailing fashion? Nonetheless, in contrast to a prevailing fashion, this is something that will really make a fantastic, positive change to our lives.
  • Breaking stereotypes

    There is a horrendous misguided judgment – lamentably propagated by broad communications – that self protection is unfeminine. These risky articles guarantee that ladies who seek after self protection are manly, "lifted" and have a tacky love for brutality. In any case, nothing could be further from reality. Truth be told, numerous models, on-screen characters and even expo champs are fans of ladies' self defence. Ladies' self protection is extraordinarily ladylike on the grounds that it is enabling. Urging ladies to take self protection is an excellent, motivating thing. Along these lines, overlook the perilous misguided judgments of prevailing press and appreciate learning self protection.
  • Do Something Now

    Obviously we need better training to end brutality against ladies and men. Savagery of different types is unsatisfactory. Sadly, however, training is long haul and will most likely be unable to help you today, tomorrow or even one year from now. That is the reason ladies' self protection training is significant. This is something that can happen now. Ladies' self defence gives utilitarian methodologies, procedures and preparing strategies to stop an attacker that plans on harming you. It gives you the security and certainty, at this moment, that you can ensure yourself should the need emerge. Tragically, regardless of how all around planned, belief systems can't do that. So until training finds reality, guard yourselves. Put resources into ladies' self protection today.
Luckily for humans, mindfulness and anticipation can cover 99% of your self defence needs, halting an assault before it goes physical. Shockingly for everyone, physical self protection is hard. It requires halting a rival who is resolved to harming you, a rival who will be forceful and totally uncooperative. Figuring out how to do that requires some investment, responsibility, and genuine preparing. Furthermore, you're not going to discover that from most hand to hand fighting. Yet, it is conceivable, with practical procedure, strategies, and preparing techniques.
As we educate our daughters and the women around us about how important self defence is, it is really crucial that we understand the difference between learning self defence and listing a set of rules. Although, self defence is important for every human to face unfortunate events that may occur in their lives. It is truly disheartening to know that some women have to follow rules like, “not going out alone at night, not wearing revealing clothes, etc.” Should that really be a part of their self defence training? No! When you learn how to defend yourself, you are learning how to be aware of your surroundings. You do not have to change your desired lifestyle just to protect yourself. Do everything you wish to do but be aware and be ready to fight whatever may come your way. You are stronger than you know. Be aware of your surroundings and prepared for any kind of events that could take place in your day to day life.

girls should also be given cultural & sex education. so that when their car get stuck and they see a man for help or when some delivery boy or postman is at the door, they dont get attracted sexually to that man or boy and dont indulge themselves in voluntary sex, later to trap that man in the rape case to save their esteem in front of their parents and society.

girls often worry if they look rude or paranoid when trying to play safe. just today i got into the lift with 2 very shady looking men and was a little scared, but thought i was being stupid, and it would seem silly to refuse to enter the lift. so i went in. they didnt do anything, but i think the message of not caring what they think and following your own intuition is very good.

if her car gets strangled in the dark , she can lock her car door and give a call home and lock teh car well and wait for us there but what happens if the distance is too far and uninvited moments doesnt need any time to happen , the car glass can be broken just in a hit and the doors can be unlocked , its a good advice to give a mobile phone but at the same time it helps only to make a call.....what if someone is already following her in that dark path have you ever thought of that...

dhnaya - your comments are pretty amusing yet seem possible in a way. however don't actions speak louder than words at the end of the day ? . nightlife and going out ay night is not safe anywhere actually girls should be encouraged to go in a group an at times boys do ward of danger . also being in a group gives her some sort of confodence too.

this article is alright. but i really wonder why all the advice is given to daughters. yes, they are vulnerable, but sons are vulnerable too. statistics show that the number of boys being sexually abused is on the rise. and yet, no newspaper or media reports about it. if a boy is raped, it is called sodomy. it is high time, we realize and accept that both sons and daughters can be attacked and they are both at risk.
