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 would know a thing or two about.
Specifically, he means if someone is stalking you or trying to rob you. 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 time to react.
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.
