Act decisively. Act quickly. Act with confidence

Step 1

As the attacker grabs your throat you and pushes you back, step back with your left leg while bringing your right arm up and over both of the attackers’ arms. At the same time twist your torso toward the back leg to gain leverage over the attacker.

Step 2

This position allows you to easily elbow the attacker in the chin. You should aim for the jawline or right above in case they move back in anticipation of the elbow strike. 

Step 3

Place both of your hands on their right shoulder and knee them in the stomach. Depending on how strong they are and how hard your knee strikes land, you may want to throw several knees.

Step 4

Run away and yell for help. Do not stay where your attacker is. You don’t know if they have friends waiting or how long they will stay down. Get away as fast as possible and call for help.
