During our self-defense training, we remind students that distance is their friend.
But how do you create distance if someone is trying to get closer? After all, people are not always respectful of our space, and someone intending to harm you certainly isn’t concerned with your well-being.
So how do we maintain or create distance?
Here are 5 general ways to create distance in situations ranging from the annoying to the aggressive.
All of these techniques, even using your voice, need to be practiced. Clear communication through voice and body language can be effective deterrents. If the person is not receptive and is intent on harming you then you have to revert more physically aggressive measures.
