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.
