In the precarious world we live in, women across the country are looking for ways to keep their family, friends, and themselves safe. That is why the guys from The Best Defense re-enact dangerous scenarios, to prepare individuals to react in aself-defense situation. Predators are always on the prowl, whether it be in adark parking garage, around the neighborhood, or on social media, so make sureyou’re ready for them.

1. Tips to Keep Safe While on the Job
What are the threats that face us involving our job? There are more than we can actually imagine, especially if our job put us in contact with people in a one on one situation and in a non-public environment.



2. How to Handle a Parking Garage Attack
One of the scariest places in the world is that dark parking garage. It is a place we all go and we're very vulnerable if we don't pay attention to awareness and avoidance.



3. Tips to Protect Yourself on Social Media
Social Media allows you to share information and things about your life more efficiently than ever before. But it can also leave you more vulnerable.




4. Be Keen to Possible Threats to Protect Yourself Against Rape
Too often, we think of attacks on women as something that might happen out on some lonely road or a far off corner in a field. But these attacks can be set up in more public places. You need your awareness on a razor edge if you want to protect yourself against the predators. Once again, we look at the bad, the better and the best scenario.




5. Have a Plan If Someone Is Trailing You Home
Victims of a home invasion are chosen while they are shopping and then followed home. Mike Seeklander and Michael Janich look at how this could happen and how to guarantee it does not happen to you.



6. How to Stay Safe in a Hotel
Any time you travel out of town, especially as a female traveler, you increase your chances of being attacked.



7. Surviving an Attack in a Restaurant
In this scenario from The Best Defense, we are going to take you to a place where violence is like a summer thunder storm.



8. Surviving an Active Shooter in a Movie Theater
The Best Defense team takes you through a worst case scenario at a movie theater, one of the most terrifying situations you can ever find yourself in.




9. Plan, Organize and Practice Self-Defense
When we're out in the real world, most of the time we're with other people. Yet, in self-defense training, the assumption is that we're going to be acting alone.



10. Self-Defense Tips for Cyclists
Don't let your guard down while you're out doing recreational activities, as displayed in this scenario.



11. Safety Tips for a Walk in the Park
The reality of an attack is that it can happen on the most mundane of days and in the middle of your daily routines. One of those routines can be to take your child for a nice walk in the park.




12. Stopping a Sexual Assault in Your Home
The dating world is nothing like it used to be. But for women, the central question remains the same: Is this person you're asking into your life the kind of person you want to ask into your life?



13. Handgun Selection for Women
Mike Seeklander is at the live fire range at the US Shooting Academy to talk about handguns and training for women.
