Me working with Greg Hamilton learning how to defend myself
They gave us great tips on how to avoid a situation in the first place by being aware of your surroundings and using body language & verbal cues to let potential attackers know that you won't be an easy target. If you do find yourself in a bad situation there are many things you can do depending on how you are being attacked. I'm not the expert here and that's why you should take a self-defense class but the most important things I gathered this morning were to protect your airway and to "attack your attacker" by hitting them in the neck repeatedly. We also learned that you should carry pepper spray ... and not in your purse or backpack ... have it readily available to you and easily accessed.
