Four Things to Do If You're About to Be Attacked

 

A former Navy SEAL recently laid out the four things you should do if you find yourself in a dangerous situation. Which is something he should know a thing or two about.

Here are the four things you should do, in this order.

 

 

1.  Increase your distance.  The farther away you are, the more time you have to react if they DO attack.

 

 

2.  Introduce a barricade.  Meaning stand behind something, so it's between you and the threat.  And the bigger the better.  So a table is better than a chair, and a car is better than a table.  Again, the point is to give yourself more reaction time.

 

 

3.  Look for a way to escape.  Scan the area for exits, or look for someone who might be able to help you.

 

 

4.  Only fight as a last resort.  Which doesn't mean you shouldn't defend yourself if you need to.  You SHOULD.  And you should fight like your life DEPENDS on it.

 

Meaning hair-pulling, eye-gouging, and groin-kicking are all viable options.  But the safest thing to do is RUN . . . and find help.
