Ladies - What Are Your Concerns When It Comes to Women's Self Defense?

I'm conducting a study on what women are, and are not, looking for in a women's self-defense program. Please help me by posting your responses through the comments link at the end of this article, and to insure that we have them should anything happen to the blog, etc., please email them as well.

The reason for my request is that I am putting together several new resources designed just for women on the topic of self-protection for women and girls. Products and services will include ebooks, downloadable directly from the internet; manuals and videos focusing on the issues that bother women the most and tempered with what I know to be true about how assailants attack and brutalize women; articles and special reports about what you can do to keep yourself safe and "off the radar" of attackers, rapists, and muggers; as-well-as live and teleseminar-based presentations that will allow you to learn my methods first-hand and become more confident, powerful and able to control a self-defense encounter with some of the most effective techniques, strategies and tactics ever developed.

As a minimum, please comment on the following - please be sure to match your numbering to this list so that we can follow along on this end. Your comments and input are greatly appreciated. Of course, you need not identify yourself and may limit your response to a comment posted here. However, if you would like to be added to our datebase, email your response to me at survey@warrior-concepts-online.com. Your email address and information will be protected and we never share our database with any third party groups.

Everyone who provides information for this survey (as-well-as who they are) will receive, absolutely free, a special report that I will be writing using the information submitted by you and others concerned about women's self-defense issues. This report will be sold to others outside of the contributing group but will be given away to those who help to create it.


Please answer the following questions, being as honest and detailed as possible. Remember, if you have something to say, regardless of how little you think it will matter, say it. I want to make sure that what I'm offering as help to women about self-defense and personal protection is not only effective and based on real-world statistics, but also something that they will find tremendous benefit in, want to learn from and feel confident in using. So, even if you think it's a little thing, if several hundred other women think it's also a 'little thing' and you all speak up, then - it's not so little is it?

Webmasters and Ezine Publishers: Email to let me know that you would like to offer this survey to your subscriber base and I will allow you to link to this survey from your website. At the end of the survey period, I'll share my findings with you and give you a free copy of the special report.**
