This is indeed a sad commentary on our civilization today that girls are not safe! A girl in Japan and another girl in Spain both fought off attackers by kicking them in the nuts! While it is true that there many great places to strike a man, the nuts are one of the easiest places for a girl to kick because bad men think they can just overpower a girl.
I found many examples of kicks to the groin on youtube.com but most of them seemed to be really staged. This one seems to be real to me but the guy might be wearing a cup. The reason for showing this video is for girls and women to see what effect a kick to the nuts can have on a male attacker. The groin area in men is very sensitive… that is why men protect it most of the time. The thing I will go into more here is when bad guys are side tracked, they make mistakes and are vulnerable!

The first thing to consider if you are attacked is how you can get away. Girls and women have a few options to try. First is do not allow yourself to be abducted. Do whatever it takes to get away. If there are people or homes nearby you can try screaming for help. Consider shouting fire to get people out of their homes or apartments!
You will have to fight back to get away. Some women cannot seem to bring themselves to fight back and end up victims for sure. The downside of this approach is some attackers will hurt or kill their victim. I cannot as a web publisher tell you that everything will be OK if you fight back and be certain this is the right advice but I say that if you are kidnapped, you may not make it.
Lets say for the sake of argument that you (a girl or woman) have made the decision to fight back and escape. What are you facing? The bad man wants your money, car, or hurt you (rape, beat up, or murder). If you fight back the man is going to try and hurt you for sure. The reason is he wants to control the situation so he can have his way. What do that mean to you? Expect to get slapped or punched if you try and fight back but do not hurt him!
First be aware of your surroundings. Try not to walk alone in high risk areas. If you must take a chance, do not listen to your MP3 player or talk/text on your cell phone. If approached by a any suspicious characters, firmly, assertively, warn them away and assume they are up to no good if they keep coming. Run, scream and try to find help! If you have a plan or weapon - now would be the time to put this into play. If they catch you - give up your money, phone, watch or any other material thing to get away.
If you are caught, and the man is talking to you - try to bargain with him so you can survive. You are trying to find an opening to attack but you do not want to get hit hard. When he is distracted, you can kick to the nuts, gouge to the eyes, surprise him with keys to the fact, stomp his foot or whatever defense you can come up with to get away!
If you start taking punches, cover up with both forearms in front of your ribs and face - keep your chin down and let him think he has beaten you into submission. This is easier to do if you have a fighting background such as one of my students did here but hang in there if you want to survive! After he has control - let him think he has won and then nail him with a knee to the nuts, rock to the skull or biting his face hard... you know - go kind of crazy because at this point it is a match of survival.
Both of these girls fought off men with kicks to the groin! There are no guarantees in life but if you do not fight back - your outcome may not be as good as these two brave girls that decided to fight back!
