Crackheads are very unpredictable.
You never know what they are thinking and how far off in their mind they are. 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.
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.
However, when dealing with crackheads it’s even more 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.
Additionally, you want to also pay attention to your footwork.
People under the influence of drugs are often very slow on their reflexes. So, you want to keep yourself moving and not stay still. By paying attention to your footwork and always moving, you are making it that much more difficult for your opponent to attack you.
Being aware of your surrounding and paying attention to your footwork can also help you to find the perfect escape opportunity. Our video below shows you on how to handle this situation:
