I have experienced domestic violence in the past and I wasn't able to defend myself. I have never punched anyone to the extent where I have caused any damage. I feel weak and defenceless, and like I will not be able to defend myself against anyone else in the future. I want to feel strong and empowered. What can I do to ensure my safety? Thanks for listening

Go to self-defence classes.

You need to report domestic violence though, otherwise it will be a never ending cycle.

Thank you for the responses, I am planning on moving away from my abusive home environment soon God willing, so I don't know if reporting it will make a difference. I have raised this problem where I was assaulted and have been told that 'these things happen', 'family is family', 'it's in the past', 'forgive'. How do you think i should respond to these responses?

This may not sound like the best idea or the most conventional advice but if it really comes down to it, it will work. When anyone ever starts violence with you, just let out a little moan and whisper "oh yea daddy, please do it again" he may hit you once more which you then reply with "i'm getting a boner" and then they will leave you alone, anyone who carries on is gay, and thats gay.

not what i'm saying at all. i'm saying they should've reported it after it happened last time instead of just learning self defence INSTEAD because that won't help the ultimate problem we are dealing with here.

First of all report it, stuff like this should never happen and those who do need to be brought to justice.

Start studying a martial art, like Boxing or Brazilian jiu-jitsu or even MMA for a mix of a few, It's not just about learning to fight and defend yourself. It's about the confidence boost you will get from doing so and the knowledge you can protect yourself if, god forbid, something along the lines of this happens again.

As another user stated, you need to report domestic violence.

In general, you can take self-defense classes.
