Just got this of forum, good ideas a must read.
SCENARIO 1: IN THE ELEVATOR
-stand close to buttons. If someone attacks, push all the buttons so the elevator will stop on all floors. Hit alarm button if possible, or try to knock off the emergency phone.
SCENARIO 2: UNDERGROUND PARKING GARAGE
-always look around, make yourself aware of surroundings
-If someone tries to grab you, use your shopping cart as a sheild (stay behind it, and turn it to stay behind it), and scream loudly.
-If you see a big vehicle like a truck, SUV, van etc... get under it. Chances are the guy won't waste time trying to get you out...and make sure you scream loudly.
SCENARIO 3: IN A CAR
If a guy somehow gets you into his car, try to jump into the back seat. Then you can attack him from behind, scratch face, and COVER HIS EYES, so that he will be forced to stop the car, and then jump out! If you can't get into the back seat, jump in his lap, and start honking the horn, or turn the ignition key off, and then try to jump out.
SCENARIO 4: IF A DRIVER PULLS OUT A GUN AND TELLS YOU TO GET IN CAR
-If you are walking down the street, and some guy pulls up in a car, and points a gun at you telling you to get into the car...DO NOT GET IN!...run away!!! make sure you run backwards, towards the back of the car...never run forward. The reason for this is, if you run back, he will have to put the car in reverse, and drive backwards to chase you (which he probabaly won't do)
- chances are that he will not shoot you through his back window while you run away because it will cause too much attention.
These are some useful tips, but it is still essential for all Sikhs to learn how to fight (with and without weapons). It builds confidence, and instead of panicking, you react to what you have been practicing. Although these scenarios were set for women, they are just as useful for men.
