Self Defense Technique – Your Confidence and Avoiding Attacks.
Have you ever felt that you are a perpetual victim? Does it seem that

If you have been the victim of assault, or abuse, in any form have you considered why your attacker singled you out?
Could it be that it was because you were unknowingly sending out signals saying in effect “Hey! Over here, I’m your victim.”
Anyone who studies and learns any form of self defense technique will
find they gain an increase in self esteem and self confidence.
So, not only are they better equipped to fight off an attack . . . they are less likely to be attacked in the first place.

around you will reduce the risk of being attacked. Be choosy as where
you go and avoid unsafe areas whenever you can.
