B.A.S.I.C. Defense Tips

  • Be Aware. Awareness is one of the most important things in Self Defense. By being aware of your surroundings, many threats on the streets can be avoided.

  • If you see or sense problems on your way, change route or go to the other side of the road and prepare to run or defend yourself.

  • Use common sense and restraint. Everyone has choices on where they go and how they get there. Keep to well lit areas, go with a buddy, avoid dangerous areas.

  • Be aware of where you are.

  • Never act or appear to be an easy target. Don’t look like victim. Someone who is walking with their head down and an uncertain gait presents an easy target.

  • Have body language that exudes self-confidence.

  • Your priorities are survival and escape.

  • Get_a_survivor_mentality.
    “I have people who count on me and I am going home tonight”.

  • Use anything you can get your hands on as a self defense weapon. A pen in your purse, keys, your fingernails-anything that might cause injury to your attacker.

  • Most “fights” are won before they start, an aggressor may back down if you maintain eye contact and do not appear to be intimidated by them.

  • Be loud, attract attention, shout words that most people understand such as no or stop.
