You are surprised or shocked when there is a surprise attack. You do not expect that something like that can happen to you. You are a good guy. You do not do something to hurt other people. So you expect that no one will do something to hurt you.
There are different motives behind any attack. Maybe you are a good guy and the attackers think you are helpless, and you cannot do something to defend yourself. So you are an easy catch. When the attacker thinks someone is weak, they try to take advantage of that.
When there is any crime, attackers can be organized. It seems that it just happens. Sometimes it is not as it appears. The attackers planned for it and you become the victim. We usually do not talk about psychological aspects that much but it is very important because you are going through these phases when someone attacks you.
So you are shocked because what's happening at that moment, you have never imagined that. When you are shocked, you might get freeze for the time being. As a result, you cannot do anything. Maybe you know how to punch or kick. Suddenly you don't find the strength to do anything.
In order to defend yourself, you have to move from the shocking stage to defensive mode. Now you have to either stay there and being attacked more or do something to defend yourself. When our life is in danger, we will do something to protect ourselves, that's natural instinct.
Just changing the mindset from the shocking stage to defensive mode, your action would be completely different. Now you defend the attacker's strike and counter-attack as a defense. If you just stay there doing nothing, it will make the situation worse. so you will do your best to defend yourself.
Now your self defense techniques and martial art skills can help you deal with the situation. So what do you think about defending yourself when you are being attacked?
