4 self defense moves you can't live without!
Eyes: It's not pretty, but there is nothing pretty about being in imminent danger. If an assailant pulls you towards him, gouge his eyes. Use your thumbs and drive them into his eye sockets. This move forces the bad guy to release you in order to protect his eyes. It's your chance to get away.
Throat: If you think you're in a life-or-death situation, take the little finger side of your hand and jam it into the assailant's throat. This is a serious move, which could crush a person's windpipe and cause suffocation.
Groin: A hard knee strike or shin kick to the groin should incapacitate the bad guy giving you the chance to escape.
Shins: A hard rake down the shin or stomp top the foot should change the assailant's thought pattern, possibly shifting his balance and giving you yet another chance to escape.

***Give yourself more of an upper hand by carrying pepper spray. Don't put it in your purse - actually carry it in a ready-to-spray position, if you feel you're in an unsafe environment.
