What to Do If You're Attacked in an Alley or Parking Lot

Learn what to do if you're attacked in an alley or parking lot in this self-defense video from Howcast.

So now I am going to talk to you about how to escape from being attacked at a dark alley. In this case, you are not going to have the light, so you have to be careful because you are not going to have the same reflexes. There are two different scenarios.

One, if she doesn’t have any weapons. I am the attacker and I don’t have any weapon either. So she want to get as close as possible and as soon as possible. Just come to me as quick as possible and close your distance. That way I cannot easily punch her or hit her. So you are going to take advantage of that momentum to grab and hit. So in this case, grab me and hit. Really quick. Again. Grab and a quick hit.

This is when I’m not having any weapon, when I don’t have any weapon.

What happens if I have a knife, for example, and I want to attack her? In this case, what she’s going to do, she’s going to get close, but she’s just going to drop her weight against the arm that has the weapon. So in this case, again with that arm, you’re going to drop your weight and come to me. Exactly. And come to me and hit. Exactly. Do it again. Drop your weight, exactly and hit, slow, very slow. Drop your weight and hit. You can use your fist or you can use your knee. Do it again. Exactly. One more time. Exactly.

So those are basically the tips that I would say if you are in a dark alley, but another very important thing is to get out of the situation as soon as possible. This is an extremely risky situation.

So those are my tips if you are attacked in a dark alley.
