Attacked Tonight on the Way Home. Are you prepared?

Attacked Tonight on the Way Home

UPDATED August 25th 2020. What would you do if you were attacked tonight on the way home? What if your wife and kids were with you? Have you considered this?

When you’re walking to your car after a night out, after a movie or dinner, do you feel safe and confident? Or do you worry about the shadows in the corner?

Attacked Tonight on the Way Home 

Maybe someone lurking behind the next car or the trash bin? If you do you’re not alone! Thousands of people every DAY are attacked on their way to their car in a parking lot or garage.

How about at work? Are there other employees that hassle you on a daily basis, sometimes threatening violence? Or maybe you work with customers all day, what happens when they get angry because things are not going their way, or maybe they’ve had too much to drink and are just looking to take their bad day out on someone… again these sort of things happen every day!

When an attack happens there is a trigger that goes off in our bodies call the “Fight or Flight” reflex. You either freeze on the spot becoming completely helpless or you act upon the situation. The majority of people freeze, it’s a natural response especially when most people have never had to confront an attacker or a dangerous situation. Did you know, attackers always look for someone who isn’t going to give them a hard time?

Pressure Point Self Defense - Attacked Tonight on the Way Home - Are you a victim?

Attacked Tonight on the Way Home

This is a very dangerous situation! Do you have the REAL knowledge to handle multiple attackers? Odds are that you do not!

An attacker will look for someone who looks like an easy target and won’t give them a hard time. In fact there are some very specific things you probably do that give you away as one, such as…

  •  Someone walking with their head down
  •  A person distracted by rummaging through their coat or purse
  • Someone on their cell phone engaged in a conversation
  • A victim that will be easily pressured into doing what they want
  • Most importantly, someone who will NOT put up a fight!

Attacked Tonight on the Way Home - Martial Arts Training

If you were attacked tonight on the way home this is where we hope our martial arts training kicks in. And there is a very good chance if we have trained vigilantly it will! However the reality of the streets today is far different than 20, even 10 years ago. The threat must end FAST!

Recently I quietly attended a seminar by a very well respected but out of touch martial arts master. There was no discussion of threat level, or anything realistic when it came to weapons. The techniques taught were OK as far as techniques go, however they provided a defense that simply did not address the BIG PICTURE. Ending the conflict with reasonable force in the fastest amount of time.  Plus on the street these type of techniques rely to much on timing. And if your timing failed would get you hurt.  Hence they are not practical.

Attacked Tonight on the Way Home - Real Pressure Point Self Defense

The problem today is most martial art training is very heavily focused on sport. And there is no similarity between this and self defense. I have personally known many good fighters who got smoked on the street because being attacked is in no way a sport! Therefore this is training everyone needs!

Right to Self Defense - Know the Law!

First thing first, which is the need to understand what I mean by self defense. Self Defense is not a "fight"." It is a situation when you have been targeted because the attacker wants something from you. It is not an argument in a bar that leads to fighting. That is a choice based on peoples egos.
