How to Deal With a Threat

You can face many types of danger during your life. Some threats are immediate, immediate and violent. Other threats are non-immediate, but just potentially harmful. Evaluate the decision and find out what you need to do to keep yourself safe. Act quickly, peacefully, and rationally.

Assessing the Situation

Gauge the urgency of the threat.

Decide how certain you are that the threat person will follow through his words. There is a wide margin for the threatening notes and a knife between a person in front of you. The way you react will depend on the immediate danger of the situation.

Evaluate the situation.

If the danger is immediate, look around you for a possible defense mechanism and escape routes, quickly and peacefully. If the danger is more abstract then try to get a clear picture of what is actually going on. Make sure you understand why you are being threatened and what is real risk.

Why are you being intimidated? If you do not know, then ask. If you can not ask, imagine it.

Do they want something from you? Consider a threat person what he demands. You never know how frustrated someone is, and it is inauspicious to kill the content of your wallet.

Who is the leader of the group? If it comes to you against them, the leader may be your first goal.

Assess the area.

Are you familiar with the maintenance of the land? Are you under the supervision of CCTV? Do you have a chance to escape? This will strongly define the circumstances that you do to deal with the situation.

Managing a Non-Immediate Threat

Talk to the person.

If you personally know the person who is threatening you, then see if there is any way to solve the situation without moving forward. If you are being blackmailed or you are being asked for something, then strike a strike. Discuss face-to-face situations and try to come up with mutual agreement.

Find out if you are being threatened for a valid thing. Perhaps the person thinks that you did something you did not do.

Do not be too proud to apologize. A good pardon can avoid some tens of situations.

Deal with blackmail.

Blackmail is still a threat, even if it is non-violent. The way you react will depend on what a person is holding on to you and how much harm you have to take. Make sure that you have not given you before considering other methods. If you feel confident, then take a stand.

Tell someone.

Make sure you are not dealing with it alone. As soon as possible, include a person whom you trust: a teacher, a parent, a friend, a fellow, a coworker, an authority person. Together, you create better opportunities. Show any threatening message to the person, and make sure he / she knows who is threatening you.

Get a restraining order.

If there is no other way to avoid danger, consider getting a court order to stop the person from bothering. You will need to prove the danger and urgency of the danger and file a report with the local police department. You can ask the person to stop the specific behavior, or you can ask that the courts stop the person from coming to you.

Once you order an individual to stay against it, then on a sequence of 50-100 yards, you can not often come within a certain physical limit. It can not stop the danger if the person is sufficiently desperate, but it will create at least one legal obstacle.

Handling an Immediate Threat

Act nonviolently when possible.

Try to handle the danger by getting out of position, or running, or talking. You can find that people are much more reasonable than you expected.

Compromise or deal See if there is any way to spoil the situation so that everyone is happy and healthy.

Decide whether you have a way to escape or not. If they are only facing you, then you can run backwards. Run to other people, there is security in numbers.

If there is no nonviolent way to escape, then you may need to defend yourself. Be prepared for it, but try not to make it your first reaction.

Defend yourself.

Be realistic about your opportunities. If you are insignificant or otherwise unmatched, then it can be wise to find a non-violent solution first. Remember that violence is not the guarantee method to ever deal with someone. Once you increase the situation, it can be very difficult to cool it back safely.

If you are in CCTV surveillance and you are planning to fight to get out of the situation, then you want the threat person to take the first step. However, if you are impotent, and one or more of them is armed in some way, then it may be enough to justify your actions.

Take down the leader.

Try grinning, elbow ribs, or kick a well-placed punch. No points for style or fair play – but if you put your full strength in it, then it should hit the deck faster. Now you need to think again.

If possible then just run. Get away quickly from the place you created. If you are lucky, the rest of the group will be distracted momentarily.

If you can not go away, then you need to get something between yourself and the rest of the group. One of the groups will do well. Hold the closest to the neck or the neck – you want to stay behind him, so he is not in good condition – and make sure you are hurting him enough that he will not attack you. Try to hold his ear with your other hand and drag it as hard as possible.

Fight for it.

Keep the fight close and dirty. Dart out and out again, and do not grab them. Once you catch one or two of them then you are finished. Run as soon as you get the opening.

Behind the knees of your “shield”, bow down to the floor in a very powerful stamp. Ideally you want to break something. Then you need to deal with others in the same way.

Try to go for unexpected goals. The knee is very weak, and can easily be broken with a kick.

The injury on the jaw can claw out someone, but they are very much hoping that it is unlikely to be closed.

Contact the authorities.

Tell the police or security guard about the confrontation. Alternatively, use your cellphone or a payphone and call emergency services. Do your best to accurately describe the situation: when, where, and what the threatening people see.
