Carry a long umbrella with hook handle.
Very useful, open it in their face distracts em and makes em jump back.
Hook handle u can pull their leg from under em.
Everyday objects, very useful, also covered under a defence called "instant arming" and you can get away with something that you cant by carrying a
knife for example which is "going equipped"
The general idea is to NOT get into a fight in the first place, and if you do, get out of it and away.
You don't have to be a ninja to get out of trouble. False thinking.
Go to youtube, you will see grannies waving handbags at a gang of armed bikers robbing a store. She won.
Also an old pensioner ex WW2 was mugged at an ATM, he supprised them again, pushed them back hard, that caugh them off guard.
And, SHOUT AS HARD AS YOU CAN to get attention.
If somebody grabs me from behind, run backwards onto something
Most importantly of all, stay as calm as you can.
