On guard: More Singaporean women taking up self-defence classes
« on: December 04, 2017, 03:26:54 pm »
SINGAPORE — Three knife-wielding men once broke into Ms Jowie Ching's home in the United States to demand for money. Though the 41-year-old managed to reach for her gun and chased the intruders out, she suffered multiple bruises as a result of putting up a fight.

Haunted by her ordeal, Ms Ching decided to take up self-defence classes upon returning to Singapore about three years ago so she could better protect herself.

"Women are usually physically weaker than men. When a guy attacks you, if you put up a fight and you do not know (self-defence tactics), it's almost impossible to beat him," said the account manager, who travels frequently for work.

Ms Ching is among an increasing number of women here taking self-defence classes, a trend that corresponds with more of them travelling overseas or studying abroad on their own.

I tried to buy a retractable baton or a T-bar for my wife, sister and mother but they cannot be imported under Singapore laws .... :-[

maybe I need to get a licensed firearm for them .... like a Glock or S&W 38 ....
