Self-Preservation Tip of the Month
Topic: 6 Self-Defense Principles
Studies have shown, AS ECONOMIES DECLINE, VIOLENCE INCREASES.
OUR ECONOMY HAS BEEN DECLINING...Learn NOW how to protect yourself,
and your family.
In previous updates, I have discussed
How to Protect Yourself in these
perilous times. In my 6-part series, I discussed
today's most relevant issues.
Parts 1-3 discussed Muggers and Rapists. Parts 4 and 5
described what to do in the event of a Carjacking. While Part 6
discussed how to handle Purse Snatchers and Pickpockets. Why talk
about such things? Currently, there are more than a half million robberies in
the US each year- and that figure doesn't include the 150,000
stolen purses and wallets, or 30,000 carjackings. There are
nearly 250,000 rapes, attempted rapes and sexual assaults. These
numbers add up to almost 1 million victims.
Warriors' Self-Defense Principles
Self-Defense Principle Number 1 of 6
1. Stay aware of people in your surroundings.
Not surprisingly, criminals exhibit predatory behavior in
preparing to attack. They will try to pick a casual location to
look for their prey. They will look at their intended victim far
more and for longer periods of time than social norms. They will
move when the prey moves. They will stop and look around for
witnesses. They will often make several passes by the prey in a
sort of ‘dry run’, seeing if the victim will react, or to get a
sense of how the attack might work. Pay attention! Who is
looking at you? Has the same person, or car passed by you twice?
Does someone appear to be moving with you?
This is no time to be self-absorbed
with our own thoughts, and be walking around in a bubble. When
we are out in public we must be aware of the people around us.
Self-Defense Principle Number 2 of 6
2. Stay with people, go to people. Do not EVER let
yourself be taken somewhere. Cops call it the “secondary crime
scene” and most of the time it will be where your worst
nightmare resides. For example, if you are approached in a
public place, do Not get into a vehicle with him. Also, if
asked, Do Not walk around the building to the alley — STAY where
others can see you. His worst fear is the fear of getting
caught. In addition, you may have to drop to the ground, if you
absolutely need to, in order to prevent him from carrying you away.
However, I teach a much more effective way to prevent being
abducted. On the
other hand, if you are in your house, or another location that is
private, you need to GO to people. His worst fear is the fear of
getting caught — run out the door to a neighbor’s. Crawl out a
window onto the roof. Drive your car up to a diner or
convenience store. Go where there are lights and others.
Self-Defense Principle Number 3 of 6
3. Attract attention. The first thing he will say to
you is “don’t scream, or I’ll kill you”. NOTE: He is actually telling you exactly
what will ruin his plan. Go ahead, ruin his plan — create a
disturbance, scream, throw things, blow the horn. If you think
you should yell “fire” go right ahead. You can’t count on others
coming to your aid, but you want to appeal to his fear of
getting caught and make him think that someone could hear you
and be coming.
Until next time, be alert and stay safe,
