The speed of the erupting violence is the biggest challenge faced by anyone, whether you are a housewife or a prizefighter.
Your attacker has the jump on you.
He is mentally and physically ready for extreme action while you are still trying to gather your wits.
By the time you work out what is happening you would have woken up in the hospital!
Few people are familiar with violence and therefore cannot cope with the shocking speed of an attack. The attacker always has the advantage as he is ready and you are not.
Reaction is always too slow for the ensuing violence.
The only way you can be ahead of him is to be proactive.
Selfdefense is a Dance
Always think of selfdefense as a dance, not a fight.
You need to be the one leading the dance.
The first thing you need to do is to change the music.
It is your music, so you lead!
Never ever let him lead if you want to go home to your loved ones.
