    Some super safety travel tips Kristen!

    I'd like to add that strongly believe that we solo female travelers should also know ways to defend ourselves from being attacked. Not all of us have time to take self-defense classes however so I'd like to share some tips which I have learned.

    I've been taking Krav Maga for women classes for self-defense and I've learned that the best self- defense targets on a mans body for women, and the best ways of striking them are as follows:

    – the eyes (finger poke them)
    – the nose (palm heel strike upwards)
    – the throat (chopping like actions)
    – the testicles (knee / kick / punch / slap / grab-twist-pull and hold on to them tightly until he collapses and passes out within a matter of seconds)
    – the knees (sideways kick to dislocate)

    I've been taught that even a trained, determined teenage girl could easily take down a man if she goes for these targets, especially if she goes fast and hard for the eyes or the testicles (or "high balls" and "low balls" as I've also heard them called.)

    If he's removed his trousers and he is about to rape you, then his testicles will now be extremely vulnerable to a "grab, twist, pull and hold" counterattack, and you should keep squeezing and pulling them as hard as you can (you can even use both hands, and it's still just as effective even if you only manage to get hold of one testicle) until he passes out in under 8 seconds.

    When a man has his testicles forcefully squeezed it causes him to curl over and quickly lose all of his strength no matter how big and strong he is – great for us women to know about. This technique has actually saved many women throughout the world.

    We can all stay safe if we know how and where to strike. if we are ever attacked

    A little tip for being in an unsave area: walk with confidence. Soldier style. You have to Seem like you know exaclty where you are going, like you are completely on top of the Situation and that you mean business. Wearing sturdy shoes also helps a lot.
