On your way you meet an aggressively looking person

Wrong!
Right!

Wrong!
You do not have the courage to cross over to the other side of the street 
and thinks that if he sees that I evade him he really wants to attack me.

 

 

Right!
You go to the other side of the street as if that was your reel intention. 
That way you avoid that a confrontation arises. It is better to evade than to show 
false pride.

You have a sense of being followed

Wrong!
Right!

Wrong!
You go on while your fear grows bigger.

 

 

 Right!
Turn around shortly look the person in the eyes and stand still while letting the person pass you. Now he is right in front of you and you have a chance to better view the course of the situation. If the person had had the intention of attacking you your look and the fact that you have stopped already had a deterrent effect - and the persecution has stopped.

You are being attacked but you stay where you are (it is very rare)

Wrong!
Right!

Wrong!
Your body language says, "Leave me alone, I don't do you any harm". But your insecure attitude invites your opponent to attack.

 

 

Right!
Immediately go one step forward - on your left foot first, if you are right-handed. Hip width between your legs, and your knees slightly bended - not overstretched. Upper body and head looking upwards. In this position you are stable and not so easy to turn over.

You are dragged by the hair

Wrong!
Right!

Wrong!
You try to get loose - which will be very painful. 

 

 

Right!
Press with one hand on top of the other onto the hand of the stranger against your head. That way the pain stops even if you are lifted in the hair. Now you have a 
possibility to endure the pain and kick the attacker. 

You are being seized by the arm or shoulder

Wrong!
Right!

Wrong!
You try - without any luck - to get loose

 

 

Right!
Even though it seems absurd hold on to the attacker's wrist. This way you obtain 
a firm grib. If you can not get hold of his wrist you grib his jacket. Take your 
backmost leg forward - and without restraint, it must hurt. Kick his shinbone 3 times with full power and with stretched feet between his legs. After that it is important that you go back in safe distance from the attacker before you repeat the kicks. When the attacker lies on the ground - and not before - you can call for help. Never turn your back on the attacker but keep an eye with him until you have got help from the police or others.
