Sixteen tips that might save your life someday if someone attack you. This is just basic and easy self defense against theft, kidnapper, burglar, rapist and other people that may harm someday.
1. Use your head.
Your head is big, hard and armored. A well-placed headbutt can work wonders, much more than punches or kicks. Aim at the bridge of your attacker’s nose and you can do some serious damage.
2. Scatter your belongings.
If someone attempts to abduct you and you’re forced into a vehicle, try to drop as many of your possessions as possible (except cell phone) to help investigators track you down.
3. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
The hardest target is a moving target. Standing still makes you an easy target. If you’re able to keep moving, you can avoid attacks – and give yourself an opening to make your move.
4. Learn some pressure points.
If you know exactly where to strike, a fight can be over before it’s even started.
5. Head for the kitchen.
If there’s no other escape during home invasion, go to the room that’s full of potential weapons.
6. Toss your wallet.
If you’re in a situation where you’re forced to hand over your wallet, don’t hand it over – throw it a few feet away. Chances are good your mugger values grabbing the wallet more than keeping you at bay. Tossing it will earn you a chance to run away.
7. Press buttons.
Press as many buttons as possible. Opening the doors at every floor will increase the chances of the attacker getting caught. It will also slow their progress if the attacker has a destination in mind.
While carrying a whistle can be handy, the sound of a whistle might not signal “emergency!” to people nearby. Try a more direct route: Yell “ATTACK!”, or “911!”
9. Assign Tasks
Due to the Bystander Effect, every individual assuming someone else in the crowd will help It’s better to call out specific people, make eye contact, and assign them specific tasks.”You in the red jacket! Call 911!”
10. Know how to escape zip ties.
You can leverage your body against itself and break the restraint. Watch youtube tutorial.
11. If you’re being followed
Try to head to a public place. If you’re in your vehicle, go to the nearest police station.
12. Dual purpose jewelry.
Decorative ring, for example, really packs a punch.
13. Take a self-defense course.
While these tips are useful, there’s no match for knowing some basic self-defense. Taking a course will train you to be aware and instinctively take action if you’re ever in a rough spot.
14. Let your hair down.
Ponytails and braids are easy to hold onto. Leaving your hair down until you get to your destination can make it much harder for a attacker to gain control of you from behind.
15. Kick the knees
Use the bottom of your foot to strike the knee. A kick to the knee is nearly impossible to block and can have a great impact. Use this opportunity to run away. Your attacker will have a much more difficult time chasing you.
16. Pull on your attackers ear.
Ears are very sensitive. If your attacker is in close, reach up and grab those ears and pull. If you’re lucky, you’ll have an opportunity to turn and run.
But the most important, if you have chance to run. Just run as fast as you can.
