I have found a couple of good examples of girls (10 and 15 years old) waiting until the oppertune momement and kicking guys in the nuts to escape! The first story is of a girl being forced to walk with a guy (he had a gun) and then being partially undressed by this pig. The girl then kicked the guy in the nuts and got away. A passing motorist helped the girl get away.
The guy was 6’1″ tall and I don’t know from this story if he was caught. The interesting thing about stories like this is young girls can really hurt bad men if they keep their wits about them. In this case the girl apparently waited until guy did not have the gun and she had a good chance at kicking the nuts. Other good targets include eye pokes, half-fists to the throat, maybe an elbow to the face and such. The great thing about the kick was it put the guy in enough pain for the girl to get away (the goal of any defense)!
My only critique here (although this girl was great!) might have been for the girl to run when the guy first showed her the gun if there were cars and people nearby. My thinking is that most attackers will not shoot and the ones that do will probably miss. The alternative is usually not good for the victim (going with the asiliant). Before I talk about the next situation I found this video (on other self-defense blogs) of a Spanish girl kneeing another student.
The girl was saying, “Who told you to touch me? Who was it, your father?” The teacher was asking who she was. I’m guessing this girl was in karate or soccer because she brought up her knee effortlessly. There is always the chance this was faked but even if it was – this is a great example of how powerful a well placed kick or knee can be!
This next story is of a 15 year-old-girl coming out of her back porch and getting attacked by a 17 year-old-boy. He pushes her back onto a chair and she kicks him in the groin (nuts)! She gets away back into her house.
It is a terrible state of affairs that women and kids have to be careful – even in their homes where it is supposed to be safe! This girl did everything right as far as I can tell from this report. I can only add it is nice to have big dogs, family nearby or be aware if something looks suspicious. If you see anything off – trust your instincts and call someone.
Parents, women and children – learn how to fight off an attacker! There are lots of short-term self-defense classes as well as plenty of martial arts schools and clubs. I think may YMCA’s have martial arts training. The best time to learn how to strike is before an attack!
