Basic self-defense tips every woman should know
Self-defense isn't about knocking the daylights out of someone who annoys you on your way to work or about living in fear or anticipation of an attack. It's about taking control of your own safety since, unfortunately, we don't live in utopia just yet.
Brazilian Brooklyn Jiu Jitsu instructor Nova Parrish explained to me, "There's a type of confidence that comes from knowing we can protect ourselves that's unshakeable. It doesn't come from the way we look or how many likes we get on social media. We look at ourselves differently when we know we can take care of ourselves and no one can take that away. It's based on something internal, not external."
Parrish takes women's self-defense both seriously and personally, offering expert tips and demonstrations on how to keep yourself safe and escape from a dangerous situation. Listen up!
