Attack from Behind
It is very fearful that you are walking on the street and someone grabs your neck from behind or bear hug you.

The element of surprise makes you off guard and you cannot escape from the attacker. To deal with it just straighten your body and drop down into a squat. This will instantly get the grip of the assailant loosen on you and from there on you can start to fight and get away from the assailant.
Attack with a Knife
Hand to hand combat is easier but the dangerous situations goes to the top level when the attacker is armed and especially if the weapon is knife. A hand gun is difficult to acquire however, the knife is the preferred weapon of the criminals because it is easier to get hands on and discreet to carry around. In the situation when you are threatened with knife the principle of redirect, control, attack and take away becomes valuable. First of all, if you are threatened with a knife then redirect the direction of the knife form hitting you by stopping the stabbing attack on your arm. This include active self-defence while also counterattacking at the same time to get control of the weapon and kicking in the groin at the same time to immobilize the attacker and taking the knife away from the aggressor. The technique to counter knife attack from different angles can be learnt and practiced through a self-defence certified instructor.
