03-2021 Defend yourself without fighting back

Last week’s incident of trying to rob me at an ATM taught me some lessons on how to defend myself better.

  1. Do not panic. Keep your eyes open and watch the culprit’s moves.
  2. Stand firm, and resist as much as you can.
  3. The culprit may be armed and desperate to rob you. Be prepared to defend yourself.

One handy tool I recommend, is to keep a can of pepper spray hidden in your palm when you are alone like
the situation I was in. Take a look at these videos :

Not very expensive. Costs about Rs. 400 for a 55 ml can, in Amazon India.
Your safety is in your hands
