I’m passionate about quite a few things: making Australia as healthy and #happyfit as possible, my boy Arnie, croissants, my Ed, and self defence (the order changes depending on how fresh the croissants are). This is why I make sure I include a self-defence classes with my fitness program TIFFXO, to ensure that every woman, man, Ninja and dog in Australia is covered and safe.
Self defence isn’t about throwing the first punch or being the loudest in a scenario, it’s about being prepared. If you can prevent or avoid a situation, that is the most ideal outcome.
There are a few small clever things we can do in everyday life to make sure we are applying ultimate safety:
When the situation gets a little hairy, try these for the most efficient strikes:
A – Attract attention. Your voice is an alarm.
S – Send a clear vocal message. Just screaming may allow people to think you’re already being helped, yell out “help!” to get instant attention.
A – Act, don’t freeze. Naturally we are prone to a fight or flight response and we want to encourage the FIGHT bit. By screaming and bringing attention to yourself, you will stop the paralysis of fear and allow your brain to think. The worst thing you can do is freeze as you may have seconds to act.
P – Power. Breathe out so you are not winded as you strike and give yourself a chance to think. Create a spectacle. Make some noise! Show the attacker you are tough and brave, full of power and strength.
