Courage, You've Got It is filled with no nonsense information that will teach the reader that you don't have to be at the mercy of those trying to harm you. The book's intention is to give girls and women the knowledge and techniques to avoid and/or defend themselves against date rape, being kidnapped, sexual assault or other assault situations. The difference in the approach by Courage is that the course and information that the author Sky Armstrong teaches comes from a women's perspective, not a man's. Women and children need to be trained differently then men, and Ms. Armstrong recognized this need. This book will teach the proper methods for using pepper spray and how to be alert and aware of your surroundings. The reader will learn skills for safety on the streets, at home, at work and while traveling. The reader will learn appropriate responses to aggression, ranging from verbal assertiveness to defensive actions against serious assault. These techniques aren't martial arts kicks and punches. They are survival techniques that women and girls will feel confident they can perform once taught. Whether the reader is seeking knowledge for the first time or someone who has felt frustrated with the training they received, this book is a must read.
