Avoid being Attacked

Knowing how to defend yourself is great,
and it is something that everybody should
learn how to do. Avoiding being attacked
altogether is better, and it is safer.
First, avoid places where an attack
may occur without notice by others. This
includes dark streets and alleys, abandoned
parking lots, and other underpopulated
areas. If you must venture into such
areas, make sure that you don’t go alone.
Be aware of your surroundings, and
listen to your gut instincts. Safety isn’t
always convenient. If you must go out
of your way to avoid putting yourself in
danger — do it! No appointment or destination
or small comfort (like getting wet or
cold) is more important than your safety.
Folks spend spare moments on the cell
phone, looking at PDAs, or relaxing with
MP3 players and headphones. While
these devices are wonderful, they distract
us from what is happening around us.
Your surroundings need your attention,
and if you have headphones on, you
won’t hear any “out of the ordinary” noises.
Put off using these devices until you
are in an area where you are safe.
If there’s a great deal of walking involved
to reach your destination, wear shoes that
you can run in, and carry those heels in
your bag. It’s hard to get away from an
attacker in high heels.
Avoid fl ashing things that may be of
interest to a thief. This includes
electronic devices, purses, wallets, and
jewelry. Which doesn’t mean that you
can’t carry these items; it just means that
you should be discreet with them. You
don’t want these items to attract
unwanted attention.
Use common sense. If you feel like you
are venturing into dangerous territory, turn
around and go back. Or you feel like you
are being followed, get to a safe place
as quickly as you can. Think someone
is watching you? Call for help or change
locations. Don’t feel like you are being
paranoid or foolish, you are trying to
avoid being attacked!
