I’ll here people ask questions such as “what if I get attacked in a dark garage?” or “what if I get attacked in a bathroom stall?” Good questions, but they (in my opinion) looking at the wrong reason in asking such questions. Usually when people ask such a question it’s because they are allowing the environment to make the situation worse then it really at that time. The situation is you are being attacked, deal with it! The environment comes into play in three different areas:
- Cover and concealment
- Escape routes
- Improvised weapons
If anyone can think of another factor I’ll be happy to hear it. Is being attacked attacked in a well light garage better then being attacked in a dark one? Nope, you are being attacked, protect yourself and look at the environment in the three ways mentioned above.
