Top 7 tips for personal safety



While there are many signs and advice for you to follow when it comes to personal security, you are the only one who can guarantee your own safety. In fact, every person should be their own safety warden and watch out always for things that may put them in danger. Many people are getting involved in Arakan Martial Art to empower themselves and be able to improve the level of safe defence ability.

Often people are unaware of a threat to their personal safety until it is too late. Many times we hear things like ‘they came out of no-where’ or ‘I didn’t see it coming’. Arakan Martial Art is taught in a unique and realistic way to help you raise your awareness of your surroundings, identify threats to your personal safety and deal with them swiftly if needed.

As humans, we have very high levels of awareness such that we can be able to perceive danger even before it appears physically. This heightened awareness can be reawakened through the practice of the Arakan Martial Art. This art helps to stimulate the nervous systems and assist the body regain its general awareness which helps it in self-defence. The only way you can defend yourself is if you are aware of the things happening around you. By practicing this art, people can become more aware of what is going on around them and be able to respond quickly to situations.

As a beginner, you may still be at the early stages of learning self-defence but there is no telling when you may need to use some self-defence techniques. Even before you get to that point, there are some simple steps you can personally take to ensure you are safe.

  • Many people like to go for runs or walks to get fit and healthy. When you go out, try to do it with a group or at least 1 training buddy. Always try stick to areas where there are other people around. This will help reduce the risk of you being attacked by a predator looking for an easy target.
     
  • When out for a walk or run, especially in secluded areas, avoid using headphones. This will reduce your awareness and you may easily be surprised from behind by an unexpected attacker.
     
  • Another good tip to keep yourself safe is to change your workout routines. If there is someone monitoring your movements, it will be difficult for them to trap you if you always change your routine. A change can be as simple as changing the route you walk or run or changing the day/time you go for a walk or run.
     
  • Always have your handset ready to make emergency calls if necessary
     
  • Avoid talking on the phone or sending text messages while in secluded or dark places
     
  • Avoid areas that are not well lit but also be aware that just because an area is lit up, you may not be 100% safe.
     
  • Trust your ‘gut feeling’ when out and about. If you get an uneasy feeling about someone or a group of people nearby, it is best to change direction and avoid them, especially at night or if there are not many people around.

For the best results in improving your self awareness, try Arakan Martial Art. Arakan is a practical martial art taught in ways that can help you raise your awareness and have the tools needed to deal with a situation if it arises.
