    SELF DEFENCE TIPS
    Ok lets make this simple and easy to understand .

    1 Awareness

    Always be aware of your surroundings and whats really happening .

    Example

    You are on a tube train on your own and you think you are being followed what do you do .

    When you get to your stop wait until the doors have opened pause and wait and then get off .

    If you are being followed this should confirm it , but don’t freak out if they also rush to get off the train . Stay calm and regulate your breathing , in through your nose and out through your mouth .

    Go directly to a public area where you feel safer and raise the alarm , wait until help arrives and then safely continue your journey .

    2 Preempting danger

    Always trust your gut instinct ( nature never lies )

    There are thousands of individual scenarios that may ( but hopefully not ) arise and you can take many different precautions , however the best precaution is common sense .

    You are in your car sitting in traffic or at traffic lights , if you can always leave room between yourself and the car in front do so and if someone tries to carjack you then you can simply drive around the obstacle in front and escape the danger
    ( although as we know this isn’t always possible )

    Keep valuables out of site and stay switched on , this isn’t really preempting danger it’s more like don’t draw attention to yourself .

    3 Avoidance

    If you know a certain area or place is bad then don’t go there .

    Obviously not everyone knows every area however look around you and familiarise yourself , again trust your gut instinct ( if it looks shit then get out of there )

    Any good security expert will tell you , if you can create the opportunity or a distraction then run like hell and get away from the danger ( he who runs away lives to fight another day )

    4 Confrontation

    What if all else fails and i become trapped and escape is not a option .

    Control your breathing as this will help control your fly / fight mechanism and stop you overdosing on adrenaline , stay calm and focussed .

    Sometimes simply shouting and screaming can cause an aggressor to run for fear of being caught , however this isn’t always possible and if you find yourself in this situation then these three steps might help .

    1 Try to stay composed as hard as it may seem and trust in god , lets face it in this type of situation , you don’t get much choice . Never doubt your own capabilities .

    2 Keep a safe distance from your aggressor ( out of arms reach ) and allow them to come towards you , as they approach slap them really hard on the ear . This may be enough for you to now run off and escape the situation .

    3 If your aggressor is still feeling confrontational and you weren’t able to escape , re compose yourself and control your breathing and if possible get inside their reach and go ballistic , push forward , attack and don’t be shy .

    4 Go on introduce yourself , stamp on their foot , kick them in the genitals , slap them hard in the face , use your elbows , pull their hair , grab their genitals and twist hard .

    5 Use your knees , elbows , head and feet at any given opportunity , don’t rely just on your hands . Utilise anything that may be near to you and remember theres no room for sentiment it’s you or them .

    There are several other things you can do however i don’t think it would be right to put them on this blog as they are a bit severe and may well get you into serious trouble .

    Remember !

    Awareness is your best defence , always trust your instinct and try not to put yourself into a dangerous situation in the first place .

    If I'm approached by a big scary daddy looking man I'd just fall to my knees and say "no sir please I'm only 17 and I've never even had sex yet"

    then proceed to let him have his way with me and be on my way home satisfied.

    yes of course we'd be safe

    Is defense spelled differently in the UK or is that an error?

    Heheh, I'm especially found of the tip that basically says to fight dirty, like grab their hair, kick them in their jimmer jammer, and use any objects around you.

    It's funny because I tend to fight dirty. :-P There's no rules when someone says they are going to kick my ass.

    this thread reminds me of one time i was walking to my car and the girl in front of me was coincidentally parked right in front of me, she started freaking the hell out and then i gave her a dirty look and got in my car.

    no need to be scared in damn broad day light, just find something sharp and if someone tries to grab you just go nuts.
