Bullies are predators
For both kids and adults, there are certain predators that you never want to deal with. Those violent persons that enjoy violence are among the worst of the worst to deal with. The mugger may take your money and leave. Social violence can often be diffused easily in some cases. Dealing with someone prone to violence and willing to inflict a high level of violence leaves you with no options but to defend yourself.
Basically, the assailant is not giving you any other option. Your person and your life may be threatened by such a predator.
There may be ways of warding off such a person. Yelling at him to stop in a firm and sound voice could draw the attention of other people. That means witnesses and the predator does not want to deal with witnesses. He definitely does not want to deal with a mob that is interested in inflicting violence.
Predators like to pick on easy victims
You can also look the part of a non-victim. How can this be achieved? If you have a strong, confident posture, you are, most likely, not someone easily picked on. A person training seriously in the martial arts ends up with a look and a physique that probably gives off a sense of being strong and physically capable. Predators may choose to avoid selecting you as a victim. Even the worst of the worst predators might opt to leave you alone.
However, you have to be prepared and skilled to deal with an attack by a predator.
Defending against a predator
When you are involved in a physical confrontation with someone, you are supposed to use the proper amount of a response to nullify the threat. With social violence, a restraint hold may be enough. In seriously violent situations, you may have to, for lack of a better term, knock the assailant out so you can escape. This is not necessarily easy.
It would be ludicrous to infer that there are any simple or easy solutions to dealing with a serious predator that can be put into a written article. You will have to train with an instructor. In your training, you will want to be involved with a program that helps increase your cardio and strength levels and you also want training that teaches you how to deal with the contact of an altercation. Without these two components, you might not find your ability to defend yourself workable.
