When suddenly someone comes and holds the knife to your throat, this is a serious situation. Now if your girlfriend is with you, you have to think about her safety and yours. If you make any little mistake, all the attacker has to do is to move his hand a little bit and you know what will happen then.
Being a hero, especially in front of your girlfriend, looks cool! We are not talking about what looks good or fancy. We are talking about defending your life and get back home alive.
You can get your girlfriend behind you so that the attacker cannot even touch her. You can talk to the attacker and give him what he wants, such as money, phone, or ornaments. Try to understand the attacker's intention. If he intends to hurt you, giving cash and phone might not work. He will hurt you anymore.
If you decide to fight back, still, you should talk to the attacker and give him what he wants. If he is distracted or somehow you make you distracted, you can make your move. Your first move should be taking his hand that holds the knife to your throat away. Then attack him.
If you do not want to fight and get away by giving what the attacker wants. You can also think about that. Sometimes you have no option except fight back. For example, you give him whatever he wants. Then he wants to take your girlfriend away. You cannot let that happen. So you have to make your move.
When you are in a situation like that, please drop your ego. If you and your girlfriend get out of there safely, that's all that matters. I'm passionate about martial arts, and I'm sharing different things about martial arts and self defense. Hope some of you will find it useful and save your life one day if your life is in danger.
