Self Defense Against Multiple Attackers

This page looks at self-defense techniques to use against multiple attackers. However, dealing with multiple attackers is an extremely dangerous scenario and you will most likely lose in this type of scenario. Therefore, experts recommend trying to avoid this scenario if possible.

Experts advise the following:

  • Avoid putting yourself in this type of situation. For example - Don’t walk the streets alone late at night, don’t park in isolated areas, etc.
  • Don’t panic because being frozen in place is dangerous.
  • Talk your way out of the situation if possible.
  • Try to escape and yell for help.
  • Be constantly moving in order to avoid hits and reduce impact of attacker strikes.
  • Don’t let yourself get trapped in a corner or against a car/wall.
  • Look around your surroundings for avenues of escape and for weapons of opportunity (i.e. garbage can lid, pipe, etc.)
  • Don’t go to the ground with grappling techniques because it is easy to be stomped by attacker’s friends. Try to use grappling techniques in order to quickly escape if an attacker has grabbed you.
  • You must actively train for these types of situations in order to even have a limited chance of success.
