Self-defense in high heels, Yerevan
April 29,
So what should a woman do if attacked in their high heels? 
Option one: take them off and run away. Sounds good. I’ll go with that. But you might not have enough time. In which case there’s option two: run away while wearing them.
Tricky. But doable. Needs a lot of practice. What’s option three? Fight while wearing them or take them off and use as a weapon. 

On April 29, a special free of charge master-class was organized for ladies, who want to learn how to defend themselves against attackers while wearing high heels. Sargis Bazinyan, SIAS Co-Founder and Head Instructor, showed a few survival strategies that can save life meanwhile preserving the legal aspects of self-defense.
