What is the best self defense to teach a girl going off to college?

My daughter will be leaving for college soon and I want to make sure she can protect herself.

The best self defense to teach women is karate. Karate is designed so that one can easily strike an opponent, or an attacker once quickly and then get away.

I'd suggest Karate, but that takes more time and, in case of women, more effort. So I'd go for Taekwondo. It is relatively easy as compared to the other forms of martial arts and women around the world happen to be more proficient at it than with Karate, Boxing or Kick Boxing.

Make sure she learn her surroundings, living area, places to call for help. Learn about who is around her, and areas she would need to stay clear of, and most of all dont talk to straingers

When you daughter goes off the college make sure she knows some self defense. Give her some pepper spray and anything else she may need to protect her self.
