Unfortunately, there is the possibility that at some point in your life you will have to face a situation of violence that endangers your life. You must be mentally prepared for this moment long before it happens.
During a fight, it is essential to overcome the overwhelming feelings of fear that naturally appear when we are threatened. Knowing what to do when faced with a threat can mean the difference between life and death.
Control your body language
Visualize yourself facing your opponent and be confident. See yourself as the victor at the end of the fight rather than the victim. Visualize the ways you can defeat your attacker instead of the harmful things they could do to you. Believe it or not, this will help you look more confident before you start the fight.
Take a position that allows you to fight
Your position when fighting conveys how you feel, that is, whether you are confident or afraid. Get into a boxer's stance, keep your back straight and protect your face. Not only will this make you look confident, but it will help you keep your balance when fighting.
Don't let yourself be controlled by your emotions
Staying calm is essential in a time of danger. If you start to feel nervous or panicked, your body language will change and you will show weakness. It can be very difficult to stay calm in a fight, but it is important that you learn to control your fears. The more confidence you show, the better the result.
Fight without reacting
You must fight without reacting to your opponents. If you react to your opponent's attacks you can be injured and lose the advantage. During a fight, try to respond to your opponent's attacks and use his strength to your advantage.
