    Hi girls and women of the forum! You might want to check this out. I haven't had the chance to try this self defense technique (and I hope I'll never have to), but I think it's a good idea to take a look at this. You never really know when you might need it.

    Learned! Good to know, and I think it would take some will-power on my finger to hold that spot steady and strong enough for the attacker to not sweep it off him.

    Nevertheless, this could be a life-saving trick!

    @IcyBC I hope we never have to use this! I have heard if you eat them in that area, but a bit up right on the adam's apple they will just collapse. No idea, haven't tested it... yet. I hope i never have to, I only hope I can react fast enough. I have been robbed before and that is ok, i just give them my stuff, but when I was younger a guy tried to run after me, I was sure he wanted to rape me. Fortunately I reacted fast enough, I didn't even think about it, I just ran. it was an automatic response. I didn't consciously made the decision to run before the guy showed the first sign he wanted to run after me... I just did it!

    Oh my gosh..I am so glad you escaped that bad thing to happen and ran on your first instinct! It is a big bad world out there, and anything we can do to help ourselves is fantastic.

    Biting the adam's apple sounds like another good tool to defend ourselves!

    Sorry, I meant ''hitting'', lol. If you hit them there (I don't recommend to do that unless you are in a real danger of being raped or killed) they will not be able to react for a while. Getting hit there can surely knock them down, but is kinda dangerous... for the aggressor. So that one must be used with a lot caution and under a very very very dangerous circumstance.

    Sorry you went through all of that. This is great advice. I have seen a lot of things, but never this. I always remember this edit I had to do about things to do to men to restrain them instead of kicking them in the groin. This was never mentioned but I just tried it on myself and it makes a lot of sense.

    Thanks for the tip. I hope I never have to use it though. There are lots of bad guys around only I wonder if I would be able to reach up to that:( point? I am not that tall.
