REMEMBER: No single method is the best in every situation. All situations are different. Every attacker is different. If your first effort doesn't work, keep thinking and try another method. Passive resistance may not change the attacker's mind or offer a chance to escape. Active resistance may excite or cause him to use more force than he would have otherwise used. If you choose active resistance, don't hold back. Use your full force and strength, use a combination of techniques and don't telegraph what you are about to do by looking in that direction. The eyes, throat and groin are important target areas. If they can't see you, they can't hurt you. If they can't breathe, they can't hurt you. If they can't walk, they can't hurt you. If an attacker is down and you have an opportunity to escape, do so as quickly as possible. Do not stop to assess injuries to yourself or the attacker. It might be your only opportunity to escape.
