Hi, my wife has recently started a nursing degree at Manchester Uni, which will eventually involve shift work (late nights), working at health centres in "dodgy" areas, and potentially coming in to contact with drug users etc . To be honest, im worried for her safety. It was only yesterday i heard on the news about a serial sex attacker roaming near by areas, and other such stories are plentiful. Ive recently started Krav Maga, and im trying to encourage her to take up some form of self defence. The univesity probably provides courses, but i was wondering what the forum would suggest. Im looking for something thats quick to learn, practical, and would help her to defend herself against sudden attacks. I have provided her with some pepper spray, but it's probably no good if its in her bag. Of course, she could easily come to Krav Maga with me, but its an all male class, probably too rough for her, and in all honesty, id rather go on my own. What would you suggest? Many thanks.
