If some random person comes at you out of nowhere and doesn't draw attn to themselves, such as just walking past you on the street, and decides to stick you....its about a 75 percent chance, that whether you could have whipped this guy like a child if you would have known he was coming or not...that you are gonna get stabbed.

Criminals get a lot of info on their victims from body language, and usually the victim is not even aware they are sending 'attack me' signals.
