Someone punches you or kicks to your leg, you can survive with a broken leg or broken hand. But if you are in a situation you cannot breathe, you will not survive longer. Any attack that makes you hard to breathe is very dangerous.
Welcome back to Self Defense Situation # 151.
Every situation is different and you cannot fit one thing in every situation. What works in one situation, that might not work in another situation. When you fight for self defense, your move should be based on the situation.
When you are being attacked and the attacker makes it difficult to breathe, you have to get out of there quickly. For example, the attacker grabs your neck and chokes you, you have to remove his hands from your throat instantly.
The attacker can be bigger and stronger, you try to move his hands from your throat but the attacker makes it so difficult that you cannot do that instantly. First, make sure that you can breathe.
You can pull the attacker's hand and just drop your chin. Now his hand is on against your chin. At the same time, tighten your neck. You cannot get out of his grip doing that, but you can still breathe. That's the first thing you should do when you are being attacked and you cannot get out of that quickly.
You can use your legs to hit the attacker. You can stomp the attacker's foot. Raise your leg a little and hit the attacker's foot. The attacker will feel the pain and that's the moment, you can move his hands from your throat.
I'm sharing a couple of ideas that you can do. It is not like you have to do this step one, step two, and then step three. Just make sure that you can breathe and then make your move.
If there is something on your hands you can use it to hit. Or, if you can grab something like your purse, pen, key, or any object, you can hit the attacker's eye with that. If you are able to move the attacker's hands, you can do knee charge, elbow strike, punch and get out of there.
Unfortunately, you might be in a situation where you cannot raise your legs or you cannot punch the attacker. And the attacker grabs your neck. Suppose you are in the car and the attacker is sitting behind you. Suddenly, he grabs your neck from behind. In this situation, you can neither kick the attacker nor punch him. You can use these simple things to make your move and defend yourself.
