Life Saving Aspects Of Selfdefense Part 1

Written by Peter Vermeeren

All to often a violent situation is provoked by our own behaviour. By adjusting our behaviour and following some simple rules we can and will avoid violent situations.

When walking onrepparttar street , sitting in a bus or jogging inrepparttar 136624 park , people love music. They want to take their music everywhere so they put on a headphone connected with a walkman. Well thatís fine for us but an aggressor with violent intentions will take advantage ofrepparttar 136625 fact that you are not aware of your surrounding. To distinguishrepparttar 136626 intentions of someone we basically rely on our eyes and ears. But if we fill our ears with music then it will be difficult , if not impossible to sense an approach from behind. Every aggressor knows this. The moment you put your walkman on ,repparttar 136627 possibility of a violent attack of some sort increases by 63% according to recent investigations.


Our posture also plays a special and important role in being a possible victim or not.

People walking around with their heads down and tripping over their own feet have an increased possibility of 32% of being attacked. By walking with your head up and looking without fear

to other people you meet on your way you already eliminaterepparttar 136628 attitude ofrepparttar 136629 prey. Just likerepparttar 136630 lion can see clearlyrepparttar 136631 weaker individual in a herd ,repparttar 136632 same way an aggressor will spot you if you have a prey attitude. Walk tall with your head up displaying self confidence and you will be a lot safer.


By paying attention to your surroundings you can avoid a lot of trouble.

It seems common sense but you would be surprised to know how many people donít pay attention torepparttar 136633 following rules.

Donít go into small alleys if you donít have to .

Donít accept an invitation by a stranger.

Trust your instincts. (it is better to make a mistake then to loose you live).

Donít pass through a group of people.

When you see a group of people occupying your side ofrepparttar 136634 sidewalk , crossrepparttar 136635 street to pass onrepparttar 136636 other side.

When choosing a position to sit down , always cover your back.
