Escape To Gain Safety (ETGS) Women's Self-Defense Basics:

The ETGS program is designed for women seeking to enhance their self-defense awareness. This comprehensive course focuses on four base asymmetric tactics: Escape, Target (Eye Flick + ENT: Ears, Nose, Throat), Gain Control, and prioritize Safety. Understanding the importance of attacking vulnerable points on the assailant, such as the Eyes, Throat, Groin, and Shins, women can swiftly incapacitate attackers and escape.

Destroy their Face, Send them to their ENT in an EMT!

Highlighting the urgency and severity of the response, the program emphasizes the importance of targeting an assailant's face, particularly the Eyes, Nose, and Throat (ENT). This approach, likened to sending them to their ENT in an EMT, underscores the effectiveness of swift and targeted counterattacks.

Three Basic Self-Defense Situations for Women:

  1. Defense Against Wrist Grab: Turning the hand outward and using the hitchhike technique to escape.

  2. Grab From Behind: Establishing a solid base, turning the hip into the attacker, executing a Groin Slap, and safely escaping by creating space with elbows.
