Life is beautiful. Sometimes we get disappointed to see something, but we can focus on positivity. See what you have right. Maybe many people will be more than being in the position that you have right now. Don't take it for granted. Somehow if you lose that, you will realize what you just lost.
At the end of the day, we want to stay safe and be happy. If you are happy with your life, you are successful. Happiness is the KPI (Key Performance Indicator) of success. Unfortunately, sometimes we face unfavorable situations. If you are aware of that and be prepared, you can handle that in an effective way.
Today I am going to talk about different situations, and what you can do in that situation to defend yourself. Let's watch this video first, then we will talk about it.
You see different situations in this video where you want to get out of there safely. That's the point. It is not about proving that you know something or you are good at fighting.
From 2:12 to 3:12 Minutes
There are three bad guys trying to get money from a girl. Two guys are in front of her and one guy is a little to the side holding a knife. You can see he pulls his knife and holds it as a threat so that it would be easier for them to rob. When you make any move, safety for yourself always comes first.
Here is the first threat is the knife that is in front of her. She first strikes his hand that holds the knife and attacks him. Then he attacks two other guys. For self defense in real life, there is not one way or only way.
You can handle this situation in another way. When the guy holds the knife, your first target is him. Since he has the knife and if he keeps attacking you with the knife, that can be dangerous. So you can grab his hand and attack him to make sure he is not able to attack you later. When you are in a central point in a group fight, you are in a vulnerable position.
You can hold the guy in front of you after disarming the knife. And you can use him as a shield so that the other two guys fight it difficult to attack you. Then you can attack those two guys and move out of there as soon as you can.
The important is, if you did not handle the first guy with the knife properly and start attacking the other two guys, he can come and stab you from the behind. And in this situation, there is a possibility to do that.
