Common-Sense & Self-Defence

Common-Sense & Self-Defence...Strategies & Techniques that Work!

Common-Sense and Self-Defence is an e-book designed to help women avoid the trauma of a sexual assault or rape. Simple, Powerful & Effective!

It is a handbook of Common-Sense and Self-Defence techniques that can be used effectively by females of all ages.

We do not propose to have an answer for every conceivable situation that may occur.

Every would-be assailant, every potential victim, and every environment where an attack takes place contains its own set of unique situational advantages and disadvantages.

However, we suggest that by adapting some Common-Sense Techniques into her life, and by becoming aware of her mental and physical potential, a women can, in many cases, protect herself from sexual assault and rape.

In this book, we have set forth some easy to follow guidelines that when adapted into her individual lifestyle, will help a woman completely avoid the possibility of an assault.

We realize though, that women are assaulted even under the most cautious of conditions, and it is for these situations that we offer Self-Defence alternatives.
