When you try to defend yourself using one technique, and it does not work, you can instantly apply another technique. There are some self defense techniques that anyone can apply and it works fine. Some techniques work for somebody else, but not for everyone.
Welcome back to Self Defense Situation # 141. 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.
In this post, we will see a self defense technique against a bear hug from behind. Then we will talk about what little thing you can change to make it more effective. Let's watch this video. This is not my video and all video credit goes to Kalaripayattu Kerala.

If the attacker grabs you from behind with your both hands, how can you defend yourself and get out of the attacker's hold? In this video, it shows to raise your hands and shoulders, grab your own hands, and move it up.
You can defend yourself using this technique, but if the attacker is very strong and grab your tight, you cannot do that or you will find it very difficult to apply this technique in order to defend yourself.
Now you can make a little change in the self defense technique and it works more effectively. The thing is, when the attacker grabs you tightly, there is no space, and you will find it hard to raise both hands.
You are in a normal position when the attacker grabs you. Now squeeze your shoulders and move it forwards. It will give you more space. You can quickly raise your both hands up. As a result, the attacker will not be able to hold you anymore. Then you can turn and counter-attack.
So what would you do in a situation like this? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section. Stay safe. Always be happy!
