Many women tend to defer self-defense to the men in their lives. Some are afraid to get hurt. Some believe that women are weaker than men and believe it to be a disadvantage to self-defense that cannot be overcome. If you or a woman in your life have some of these beliefs, I encourage you to watch this video. I could go on and on about this but for now, I offer up a few of my thoughts and look forward to hearing yours.

It’s important to know your enemy. The good thing is zombies are more or less built like their living version — us. In other words, they are built like us and hence have similar “structural weaknesses”. Since they don’t react to pain and bleeding doesn’t bother or injure them, it’s a good idea to break their structure and limit or stop their movement if you can’t go for their brains. Following on a earlier video by John that discusses the ideal traits of an anti-zombie martial art, I talk about the concept of “structural incapacitation.” The Internet is replete with self defense videos with a lot of jargon that is basically Greek to the average human. This video discusses the basics of human structure and two targets that an unarmed person can use with little strength or training to take down a zombie or aggressive human and get away safely.

Zombies are attacking, your gun jams, you don’t have time to get to your knife – what kind of empty hand self defense tactics are you going to use?
In this video, one of the martial arts expert co-founders of the Zombie Prep Network examines the CQB tactics that are unique to a zombie survival situation.
It’s less about an unarmed combat style than about practicing skills and tactics which are most like to work against single or multiple pain-resistant attackers.
The video breaks it down, but here are the basics:

You know what makes the Zombie Apocalypse worth living? Besides bacon, nutella, cars and cars to choose from, and access to fancy penthouses? Women. Yep, the fairer sex. Honestly, I think that’s a strange adjective for us girls but I would say that if you ever go people watching, there are still more good looking women in the general population than men. Can’t say that will necessarily be so during the ZA, but we’ll get cuter and cuter as we lose more and more humans to the undead hordes.
This is my video intro to what I hope to be a recurring series that deals with issues specific to women during the ZA.

Brains, brains, brains. That’s all people like to talk about! But what are your other options, what if you’re shorter, not as strong, lower to the ground, have a crappy weapon or no weapon? We gave this some thought and ranked these based on the ease of “execution” (effectiveness) and repetition (reliability – flub proof). Consider these!
