After considering the recent news about a serial killer on the loose who targets Sp's and reading the thread on Bad Dates I wondered how concerned Sp's/Strippers are with their personal safety. Does the average Sp resign herself to helplessness and plan on begging for mercy if attacked or do they actively train/prepare to give themselves a chance to escape from a would be captor/attacker.
Are there any Sp's out there who have taken self defense courses of any kind? If so, what and for how long? Would any of you know several different ways to momentarily stun an attacker to give yourself enough time to break away and run? Obvious one, a knee to the groin, but what if he is behind you trying to strangle you? What then?
Are there any agencies which offer courses to their ladies? Do agencies view self defense courses as worthwhile or that it is the ladies responsibility to train herself?
