An excerpt from the Introduction...
The best time to avoid a potential attack is before it happens, trusting in your instincts. We call this situational awareness. Your intuition, combined with your common sense, can help get you out of trouble, even before you get into it. We will discuss the differences between distinct situations and levels of aggression, what to expect if you find yourself in one and how to be best prepared to react.
Attackers aren't always strangers who jump out of dark alleys. The majority of violent attacks are made by a prior acquaintance, a person minding their own business could be assaulted by someone under the influence, and given the wrong situation anyone can be attacked by a neighbor or spouse. That's where important self-defense skills called negotiation and de-escalation come into play.
De-escalating a situation means speaking or acting in a way in attempt to calm the situation down and/or prevent things from getting worse. The classic example of de-escalation is giving a robber your money rather than trying to argue, fight or run. Negotiation is the communication part of de-escalation.

Being a women and marital artist, I've seen a lot of "self defense" courses and honestly they have always left me questioning that there had to be a better way to train for these situations. Most courses jump right into how to smash some guy's Adam's Apple into his throat and then go through a number of complex techniques that I know as a martial artist would not work in a real life situation, especially for women.
Innocent Warriors© is a multi-part, custom series created by my me (with assistance from my husband, also a martial artist) with information from long time experts in self defense and the criminal field. Produced in an informal, women only private setting, Innocent Warriors© is designed to provide an understanding of the dynamics of self defense from a women's perspective and the situations that require its use or more preferably the avoidance of it. Unlike those other courses that start out with violence, our focus will always be on intuition, situational awareness, control and escape with well thought out, realistic approaches and techniques.

Type your paragraph here.
Ever thought of what it would take to get yourself out of a scary and most likely dangerous personal situation? If you answered no then you are probably under the impression that something terrible can only happen to "other" people. For those who answered yes, at least you are aware of the real world that we all have to survive in (if you are interested in understanding more on this mindset check out this recent post, Rousing the Female Warrior Spirit). Acknowledging that bad people are out there is not paranoia, its a fact, and it doesn't mean that we are overly aggressive women because we want to be confident enough to walk through life knowing that if a situation did arise putting us or our families in danger, that we at least have some training in how to deal with it.
