Self-Defense Tips for Dealing with a Crackhead

Crackheads can be very unpredictable

You never know what they are thinking and how far off in their mind they are. Because of that, it’s important to learn self-defense tips for dealing with a crackhead.

What’s worst is that because they are completely under the influence of drugs, it’s harder to get through to them and get them to see logic.

That’s why when you come across them in any circumstances, you have to be extremely careful on how you handle the situation. Any wrong movements or communication can have terrible consequences.

Be aware of what is going on around you

That being said, there are different solutions depending on the situation you’re in. Because crackheads are very unpredictable and there are no two situations alike, there isn’t really one main solution to it all.

The important thing however is awareness. Awareness is key to any self-defense technique.

Indeed, when dealing with crackheads it’s crucial to be aware of your surroundings. One thing all crackheads have in common is the fact that they are very unpredictable. Therefore, you need to be aware of your surrounding and your opponent at all times.

Use your footwork skills to move around

Additionally, you want to also pay attention to your footwork.

By paying attention to your footwork and always moving, you are making it that much more difficult for your opponent to attack you.
