Body Language

So HOW do we avoid the confrontation or sticky situation from happening?

It is how you conduct yourself

So with good confidence and body language most situations can be avoided or dealt with, BUT NOT ALL!!
Remember they are looking for that easy target!!

Your body language, Mode, feeling, Attitude will determine if they will attack or not.
There are 3 types of behaviour for this:
PASSIVE
AGGRESSIVE
ASSERTIVE

PASSIVE
You show that your afraid
You show fear
You do this by looking and being timid, having the shoulders down, no eye contact, looking at the floor, looking/turning away.
This gives the Green light to the attacker, gives them the go ahead

AGGRESSIVE
This is the opposite to Passive
It is when we fight fire with fire
Get the chin up, chest up and out, very macho
Clench Your fists, Shoulders back.
This will only cause a problem and not avoid it

These are the ones to try and avoid

ASSERTIVE
Have good eye contact
Strong tone of voice
Project yourself, strong voice, good body language, project your strength, good body posture.
use clear words like BACK OFF!!
Open palms not clenched fists but up and ready.
These will show you are confident and will put off most attackers

Just by using these simple techniques it will put off most attackers from the get go. Remember they are looking for an easy lunch. Show confidence with good assertive behavior.

But remember this is not always enough to learn how to deal with the adrenaline rush and how to protect yourself if attacked book onto a workshop at www.inspiredfitness.biz
