NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In The New Superpower for Women, Steve Kardian, a seasoned veteran of law enforcement, FBI defense tactics instructor, and an expert on the criminal mind, leverages his 30 years in law enforcement to help women leverage their gut instinct to stay safe in today’s world. He insightfully details how to make the most integral safety habits a natural part of a woman’s daily routine.
“While we all need to take precautions to stay safe in today’s environment, the truth is that crimes against women, along with their psychological, emotional, and physical effects, differ, sometimes drastically, from crimes against men,” says Kardian. “When a predator attacks a man, the man’s money or life might be at stake. But when a woman is attacked, there is unfortunately the additional risk of sexual violence and years of associated emotional trauma.”
The New Superpower for Women illuminates the greatest strength women have for preventing possible violent encounters: intuition. The book teaches women the common characteristics that criminals and predators look for when selecting a target and demonstrates the mastery of body language cues to radiate an aura of strength and confidence that deters potential predators. Readers will learn to recognize seemingly random glances, aggressive facial expressions, and how to react and prepare for a worst-case scenario.
All factual accounts detailed in the book involved Kardian in some way- he personally participated in the investigation, was told of an incident firsthand by a colleague, or was requested to consult on the case for the media.
Steve Kardian is now a partner at Defend University, a self-defense program created specifically for women that has trained and educated over 100,000 women of all ages. Kardian has dedicated his career to teaching women about safety, risk reduction, and crime prevention. He holds a third-degree black belt in karate and the title of professor in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
“It is my mission to foster confidence, awareness, and strength in women through education and preparation,” adds Kardian. “And I hope that this book inspires self-empowerment for women of all ages.”
