A common attack against women is the "bear hug", but men are also attacked this way too. Someone larger and strong is surprising you and grabbing you from behind.
Watch this quick video to see how even a smaller person can defend themselves in such a situation.
But, remember, a video will never replace real, live training. I hope you'll join us in our upcoming self-defense course.
"It is better to be a warrior in a garden than a gardener in a war.” -Sun Tzu
Basically, this quote is saying it's better to have the knowledge and ability to defend yourself and not need it, rather than needing the skill of self-defense and not having it.
Please, invest the time to learn self-defense.
