How To Protect Yourself During A Dangerous Encounter
After a scary encounter, it’s normal to feel a little on edge. We may not want to go out in public, or we might not feel safe in our own home. In these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever for women to take care of themselves and prepare for the worst.
Self-Defence vs. Fighting
When it comes to protecting yourself during a dangerous encounter, you have two main options: self-defense and fighting. Both have their pros and cons, so it’s important to understand the difference between the two before deciding which is right for you.
Self-defense is all about using your body and mind to protect yourself from an attacker. It’s about using your intuition and awareness to avoid danger, and if necessary, using your physical strength to defend yourself. The goal of self-defense is to keep yourself safe, not to hurt the other person.
Fighting, on the other hand, is about using your physical strength to harm or disable an attacker. It’s about overpowering them with your fists or weapons, and causing them pain or injury. The goal of fighting is not necessarily to stay safe, but to hurt the other person enough that they back down or are unable to continue attacking.
So, which should you use? It depends on the situation. If you’re facing someone who is much bigger or stronger than you, then self-defense may be your best option. If you’re confident in your ability to fight and you know that you can take down your attacker, then fighting may be the better choice. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what will work best for you in each situation.
What Should I do in an Emergency?
If you find yourself in a dangerous situation, it is important to remember to stay calm and think clearly. Here are some tips on what to do in an emergency situation:
- Call SOS number of your region immediately and give them as much information as possible about the situation.
- Try to get away from the danger if possible. If you can’t get away, try to find a safe place to hide.
- If you are confronted by the attacker, try to stay calm and talk calmly. Try not to show fear or anger.
- Avoid physical confrontation if possible. If you must fight, try to aim for vulnerable areas like the eyes or groin.
- Once you are in a safe place, call your family or friends and let them know what happened.
