Even the fear of sexual assault can be enough to paralyze the strongest of women. In a society where rapes occur with alarming frequency, it is vital to know not only how to avoid a sexual attack, but also what a woman can and must do when everything else has failed, leaving you face-to-face with a predator who has only one thing on his mind: the violation of your mind, body and spirit.

This original Paladin production demonstrates 7 proven-effective prevention strategies every woman must know, then picks up where other tapes leave off—when you're already in a compromised position and a decisive and explosive counterattack is necessary.

Part 1 provides essential, uncomplicated techniques for stand-up attacks, showing you what to do—and not to do—in potentially life-threatening scenarios.

Part 2 delves into defense from lying down, rape-specific pins and assaults, providing comprehensive instruction for worst-case scenarios. With their realistic scenarios, full-force demonstrations on padded attackers and easy-to-follow instruction with at-home practice exercises, these gritty, no-holds-barred videos should be required viewing for all women interested in being safe, confident and secure. For information purposes only.
