Personal security? What is it?

We mainly think of personal security from a self defence perspective when the reality is that there is so much more to it than defending yourself from an attacker.

Indeed there are many aspects to personal security that really get no attention at all, let’s stop and consider a few of those things that frequently get overlooked.

For instance how and where you position or carry your personal items such as mobile phone, purse / hand bag, wallet and other easily transportable items. In the photo’s below we see somebody walking down the street presenting several opportunities to the bad guys out there.

To list but a few, you’ll notice that the back pack has a vertical zip in the center, not secured!

Just sitting loose in the right hand mesh pocket is the mobile phone with a cable running to ear phones. Easily removed by a sprinting opportunist, what’s more the victim would have no idea until the last moment due to lack of peripheral vision due to wearing the hoodie and of course having no audible warning of the assailants approach due to the sweet tunes playing on her phone.

All simple stuff to rectify really, secure the phone somewhere on the front of yourself, secure the pack through the loop on the zip with a small lock of some description, pop the hoodie down, turn the music down to allow some of the outside in and from time to time turn around and look behind you.

So without going into great detail we can see how easy it is to unwittingly leave ourselves vulnerable to to an opportunistic attack.

In the next few installments we’ll look at all sorts of areas that need attention such as our vehicles, around the home (that’s a big one), traveling and of course internet security.

A bad situation with an easy solution!

An unlucky guy for sure, but a very simple choke release would have resolved the situation in the initial stages.
Even if he didn’t react at the onset he could easily have been kicking when the second guy approached and then continued with the release, some of our regular students may recognize the same scenario minus the steps as a P3 multiple attacker scenario drill.

This is why we train Krav Maga!
