    Hey John, we’ve been learning to defend ourselves against this very thing. Last week we were taught to not only pull away if someone grabs your arm, but to step into his space and then do what you need to from there, your knee in his groin, or your elbow in his face, the object is to get your attacker to loose his footing. I’m glad your wife made a noise, and didn’t get hurt by this creep.

    Howdy Amanda,
    This sounds like great advice! When you do get an advantage it is important to not let up. For instance when you knee the groin, you can also pull the back of the head/hair to make your eye-strike/elbow more effective. Hooking the back of his foot and pushing him over is not a bad way to make a hasty retreat too. To much unexpected stuff that is causing pain it better than not too much. It is easier to get away. I really like that your instructor is teaching this stuff to you.
    My wife hung out in the church for a little while and was very cautious walking home – to the point of walking across the street to verify she was not followed before cutting across to our house.

    A pepper spray on your keychain always helps to give me a safer feeling, since it will stop a punk from getting close to you. Works up to 12-15 feet, which is plenty of breathing room. Don’t leave home w/o it!

    Remember, spray first & ask questions later…

    Funny you should say that but my wife took some pepper spray the next time she went over to the church to pray. Without trying to take too much advantage of the obvious pun, you are preaching to the choir :)
