Hello everyone! In this article I would like to present you something to easy to do but very important: how to fall down and how to stand up in a safe way.

When someone pushing you from the back and you fall you have to put your two hands to stop yourself and to protect your face avoiding it touches the ground. For this you need strong arms to stabilize yourself and turn your face on one side.

But when you fall because someone has pushed you in order to attack you, if you will stand up in a normal way you will offer him your back: the aggressor will be still behind you and this is not safe!

So this is what you should do when you fall:

  • fall down in a safe way: first touch the ground with your hands and turn your face on one side;
  • choose to go to one side (left or right): e.g. right elbow and right knee on the ground, roll on your right to a supine position and protect yourself with your legs;
  • analyze the situation.

You can drop your aggressor down (several options):

  • Hook the ankle of your aggressor with a foot, pull it and at the same time push on his knee with the other foot.
  • Hook the ankle of your aggressor with a foot, hit his knee with the other foot with like a scissors.
  • If the aggressor is kicking you, protect yourself with your arms and grab the leg on the ground then push him.

When you stand up:

  • don’t stand up forward because you will be too close to your opponent;
  • put one foot (e.g. the left one) and the opposite hand (e.g. the right one) to the ground like base and bring the other foot behind you;
  • you will stand up with a safety distance from your opponent.

So in this article you have read how to fall in a safe way, how to react and how to stand up when someone attack you in the street.
