Always be alert when engaging in a street fight

We’ve mentioned several times the importance of awareness for self-defense, meaning that your awareness can help you prevent a fight and being victim of a crime.

But, what about when there is no other choice than to engage in an altercation with someone?

While you’re trying to focus on getting away from your attacker, it’s also very important to be aware of your surroundings.

You don’t know if your attacker has friends or if there is another threat near by that can put you at an even more disadvantage.

Therefore, it’s important to focus on your surroundings. Be aware of not just your attacker, but also of your environment.

Always scan your surroundings during a fight

Is there anyone else who might come and join the fight? Always be on the lookout for possible multiple attackers.

Maybe there’s someone who can help you near by that you can shout for assistance, so they can help you or call the Police.
