Beyond the Self Defense Tweets:
Taken randomly from my self defense tweets on Twitter. I write super-short blog posts to go Beyond the Tweet, chosen from the archives.
Karate moves are cool, but an awesome self defense technique is the “Nike Defense.” Never heard of it? It means: Run!
Beyond the Tweet:
Machismo says stay and fight.
Panic says stay and freeze.
Wisdom says stay alive and run.
Being street savvy, having self defense skills, or even being a black belt are great, but if you can run away safely to live another day — hey, go for it. There are people who love you and want you home tonight.
Note: This does not always apply. Sometimes you have to stay and fight to save someone else or for other valid reasons. Your wallet is not usually one of those reasons (unless you owe me money 🙂 … Ha! I keeeeed you.)
