The best one to use no matter what your level of training or armament would be common sense. If you wouldn't go someplace without a Doberman, a shotgun, and a pistol, you don't need to be there at all.

Another self defense tactic would be hang up the %$*# cell phone. You can't be aware of your surroundings if you're trying to carry on a conversation. Knowing what is going on around you is critical.

Self defense doesn't begin when you're about to get your butt handed to you. It begins by avoiding the threat in the first place.

Your more likely to survive by doing what doc says.

Guns weapons fighting running hiding are things you do AFTER things have gone to hell and your about to be killed raped kidnapped robbed.

For example when I get a cell call outside home I find a handy wall or someplace I can put my back to while I talk. I don't go to Milwaukee or chitcago after dark. I don't go to chitcago at all if I can help it. I live in between both hell holes. I look at everyone in the eye. When you act like a prey item you become one.

I always look for exits and cover to duck behind. I keep my car doors locked.

Book I can recommend is called the "cornered cat". It's a book aimed at women but it applies to men as well. Very good read on self defense

I felt this entire post bore repeating.

Be alert, and aware of your surroundings.

I have to agree that not putting yourself into a crappy situation

in the first place
is 99% of pro-active self defense.



If you have to fight, be quick, vicious, merciless and dirty. Spit,

bite, blind, kick, use improvised weapons like broken bottles, sticks,

pencils and pens, and rocks. The real trick, once you realize it is on,

is going to be giving yourself enough time to clear your holster, if

you are armed.

Don't use your phone in movie theaters.

M.Y.O.B
(mind your own business)

I have always lived by the credo "don't mess with me and i won't mess with you"

However, when the time comes and you are "messed with":

- #1 protect yourself. Hands up and position yourself to be able to react( or attack)

- be aware of your surroundings. Is there an escape route? Don't corner yourself. Get to an area that a bystander may see whats going on. Will yelling or a whistle draw attention?

-arm yourself(if comfortable) with anything you can find....stick, rock, car keys, knife, bottle, umbrella, belt, handful of dirt, dog poop, ....anything

- remember there is no such thing as a dirty fight in a defensive situation.....punch, kick, bite, eye gouge, fishhook, knee to the groin, chop to the throat, throw the handful of dirt in the eyes, smoosh the dog poop on their face......anything to survive
