Life happens! Sometimes you can’t make it into your location. Here are some things you can do to keep yourself out of the cross-hairs of an attacker:
- Body Language – Walking with confidence could be the key to keeping attackers at a distance. People who commit crimes are more likely to target people who look vulnerable.
- Voice – When in a situation where you feel you may be attacked, use a clear, loud voice to tell the assailant to get away. This may alert passersby that you need help. Giving push back will also show that you aren’t one to be taken advantage of.
- Plan your Hits – Planning to hit sensitive areas on your attacker can save your life. Gouging at eyes, attacking nose, neck and knees will subdue an attacker and surprise them. If using a knife striking at the arteries in the neck or the jugular vein will leave the assailant helpless. Kicking a knee at any angle will knock the attacker to the ground.
We hope you never have to use these techniques. Being aware of your surroundings and avoiding dangerous situations also helps. But danger can lurk around any corner so it is good to keep these tips in mind!
