    Women's Self Defense Books?

    I want to keep my lady as safe and protected as possible. One the best ways I can think to do that is for her to be able to better take care of herself. We're planning to take some self defense classes together but I'd also like to get her some books to check out.


    The Cornered Cat comes HIGHLY recommended and from what I've seen so far it deserves it (plus the author seems like a great lady)

    has anyone checked out:


    Personal Defense For Women


    I was thinking of ordering that one in addition. What other books would you recommend? They don't all have to be specific to women (I have a lot to learn as well) but ones that apply to the real world.

    [U]The Truth About Self-Protection[U] by Massad Ayoob. Very comprehensive. His In the Gravest Extreme would be a close second. By the way, self defense is gender neutral but sometimes women have more credibility with other women.

    Absolutely! That is why I highly recommend them. There is generally too much emphisis on hardware and not enough emphisis on software, i.e., mindset and behaviors.

    Cornered Cat also has a website Cornered Cat and a Facebook page. I have really enjoyed reading the posts on the facebook page. Plus it is a great way to see more input from women.
