IN the event of a snatch theft by perpetrators on motorcycle, women should immediately sit down if they want to pull back their handbags.
This way, the thief would lose balance and fall off his machine, said Bukit Mertajam branch Shidokan Karate instructor Chan Wai Tatt.
By sitting down, he said, the victim could also avoid being dragged by the motorcyclist.
Chan said if the victim pulled back her handbag while standing, she would most likely fall forward and end up being dragged for a distance.
“When lying on the ground, you will have greater strength than the motorcyclist, as you are in a more stable position than him,” he said, after presenting a self-defence demonstration and talk at the Seberang Prai Municipal Council branch office in Jalan Betek, Bukit Mertajam, on Sunday.
The demonstration was part of a self-defence awareness seminar organised by the council’s Local Agenda (LA 21) Women’s Excellence Working Committee.
Bukit Mertajam MP and national DAP Wanita chief Chong Eng opened the half-day event.
Chan also advised women to give the snatch thief a powerful kick in the groin, if the situation permitted, adding that the impact would be greater if the women wore shoes with pointed heels.
“However, these brave attempts should not be taken when confronted by more than one thief. It is better to let go of your handbag Earlier, Seberang Prai Municipal councillor Tan Cheai Peng, who heads the committee, said the event was the committee’s maiden programme since its inception this month.
“We hope to organise more awareness programmes for women, such as recycling household wastes and preventing household fires,” she said.
