Multiple Attackers

A woman that I work with was mugged in a parking lot in Los Angeles a few weeks before Christmas last year.  As she was leaving the parking lot to go to the office, a man walked up to her and demanded that she give him her car keys.  When she refused to comply, the man grabbed her by the arm and tried to pry the keys out of her hand.  She lost her balance and ended up on the ground.  Fortunately for her, there was an ambulance passing by with the lights and sirens on which scared her attacker.  He ran from the scene and to her surprise, she saw another man running with him.  She realized at that time that there were two men, not just her attacker.

It is very common that situations like these have two or more attackers involved; one as the look out, the other as the perpetrator.  She was very lucky that they didn’t both attack her at the same time.  It is not uncommon to be a victim of multiple attackers.  Whether it is someone with a baseball bat, stick, knife or even a gun, the sad reality is that most individuals will not survive an attack by multiple people.

A month after the incident, I was asked to provide a self-defense class at work.  It was attended mostly by women and I was disappointed when I found out that the victim from a month ago was not going to attend the class.  My only hope is that she won’t become a victim again, because luck may not be on her side next time.

We live in a very dangerous world and sometimes even our best efforts to maintain our safety, still leads to unfortunate things happening which may result in a situation leading to injury, or even death. Dire circumstances find us despite our best efforts to evade them. There will always be people who would mean us harm.  Take the proactive approach to being a survivor and not a victim

As a self-defense instructor, my goal is to empower women with simple and effective techniques that can fend off any attacker, basic self-defense knowledge that may be applied than can reduce your risk of becoming a victim.

Take the proactive approach and become a survivor and not a victim.
