Fighting Back Against Sexual Assault

self defense agains sexual assaultViolent crimes against women in Arizona are happening at alarming rates. It’s important that we educate all women, young and old about the dangers that exist in our state. Sex crimes aren’t necessarily events that happen with strangers, often times a sex crime is something that happens between people that know each other. There are many resources online, and locally in Tucson that victims can seek help at. No woman that is the victim of a sex crime should stay silent, reach out to these support groups, talk, heal, and take action. If we stay silent, these monsters will continue roaming our streets preying on the women in our state. Tucson is large, and crimes against women are happening far more often than ever before. It’s time the women of Tucson unite, come together, and take a stand against violent offenders. This resource is being made available for anyone looking for support groups, wanting to recover from a sexual assault, needing more information and how to cope with a sexual assault, and how to push forward with life. Everyone responds differently and the information here is intended to give everyone, regardless of the circumstances, an opportunity to seek help.

Sex crimes are not always preventable, but in many instances there are going to be signs of a possible attack, having the ability to identify these signals before an attack happens can be used as a preventative measure. There are many forums online that talk about the various ways you can protect yourself in your home and while out in public. Some people recommend that you buy a gun, get a concealed carry permit in Tucson, and keep a weapon for protection. Others will urge you not to take up arms, but instead, learn from a self-defense gym in Tucson. Both of these are valid sources of protection against an attacker, however, I believe that one is superior to the other when choosing which direction you want to go. A firearm isn’t necessarily going to be accessible in a time of crisis, knowledge of self-defense, how to punch, how to kick, and how to defend yourself in certain physical scenarios will be effective at any moment. Sometimes these crimes happen so fast that there isn’t time to reach into a purse and grab a gun, but if you are grabbed from behind and know how to defend yourself you can utilize those strengths and movements to protect yourself against a violent attack. I’m not saying one is better than the other, and honestly I rely on both daily, but if I were just beginning to consider these options I would start by joining a self-defense gym, learn to strike effectively, learn how to defend an attacker, and learn some techniques that can be used when you are forced to the ground. Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective techniques on the ground and is highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn how to protect themselves on the ground from a violent attack.
