Most rape attempts were initiated with the victim in a supine position. The following techniques teach how to prevent the rapist from mounting you as well as how to inflict debilitating injury on your attacker and get back on your feet to continue to fight or to flee.
Photos 1 and 2 show an assailant approaching his target. The defender in a supine position uses the natural instinct of raising the hands as a barrier against a forthcoming danger. Photos 3 and 4 show the defender using her thumb to attack the assailant’s eye. The thrusting motion was applied violently to push the assailant backwards. Photos 5 and 6 show the defender freeing her leg and placing it against the assailant’s groin. She then converted the motion into a violent kick to inflict damage and to create space in between them. Photos 7 and 8 show the defender getting back on her feet and fleeing. It is highly recommended for the defender to scream for help and draw attention to her self. Contributed photos
