If you are being attacked suddenly, you have no options except fight back or run if you get a chance. You have no idea that it could happen to you. Things happen and you have no control.
When someone attacks you out of nowhere, you get shocked. You might get afraid. In a normal situation, you can make your move and do something, but when you are in this kind of situation, things are different.
So why does it seem difficult to defend in real life?
Frankly speaking, it makes the world of difference when you are under pressure and you are afraid. Maybe when you practice some self defense moves, you can do that.
In a situation like this, you feel like you don't remember any self defense moves. You get freeze for the time being. The familiar place feels like an unknown place. If you have ever been in this situation, you know it very well how it feels. Otherwise, it is difficult to realize the situation.
You might be wondering why self defense instructors talk about simple, easy, and effective self defense techniques. You can learn some fancy moves and complex techniques. The fact is, fancy moves and complex techniques look good on camera. If your intention is to be an action in actor movies or be a stuntman, you will find those moves useful.
If you want to defend yourself in a real-life situations, simple, easy, and effective self defense techniques will be very useful. When you get freeze temporarily, get back to the normal status, be in a defensive or attacking mode. Sometimes attacking is the best defense. When the attackers get hurt, they will at least think twice to attack you again. Only blocking the strikes might not work because they will keep attacking you.
Sometimes you have to defend yourself and find a way to get out of there. If there are many attackers or they have weapons, maybe getting out of there would be a good idea. So, you focus on defending and attacking in order to get out of there. If you can get help from others or inform other people about the situation, call the police, please do that.
At the end of the day, if you save your life and get back home alive, that's all that matters.
