Have any of you taken any women's self defense courses? What tips would you give to young women in college on staying safe? I'm trying to put together a book for the women at my campus so any tips at all would be greatly appreciated.

As an instructor, I can tell you half of what you "learn" in those "classes" is utter bullsh!t. Check out the creditials of the instructor, ask questions like "Have you ever been involved in....*some situation*"....and then check out training of the class beforehand..if nobody in that class leaves without doing any of the following..sweating/limping/breathing heavily/bleeding/or some type of ache and pain...the class ain't worth the value of a wooden nickel.

Oh and if the instructor keeps saying something along the lines of "kick him in the balls/scream real loud/use your pepper spray on him"..dont walk out the class....RUN. Cause that some penny anny garbage right there.

I agree with this........because generally theres no one around, that will hear/help you. Students take for granted that just because the campus is huge, and there are a lot of students........its safe.

The best way for students to protect themselves..............is to walk, exercise, study.....with someone else, or in a group.

Never walk the campus alone, if you can help it!!
yeah

If you are attacked, don't f*ck around with your attacker...get raw, get dirty, get mad....

Your only targets should be the eyes, the throat, the knees, the ankles.

Your job is to immobilize the bastard (personally I say end him..but the attorneys on here might give me grief over that..hehehehhehe)..make sure that when you he goes down, he can't get up and come after you. I emphasize attacking the legs ie. knees/ankles...because I learned from both a fireman and a convicted arsonist years ago, destroy the foundation and the whole structure comes tumbling down.
I was told to keep a sharp pencil or pen around and stab the attacker in the eyes with it. If you don't have a pencil, then use two fingers. Basic anatomy tells us that men are strongest from the waist up, and women are strongest from the waist down. Therefore, women should also use their lower body (e.g., strong legs, thighs, hips, and feet) to kick and defend themselves.
