When someone just puts his hand on your shoulder from behind, what would be your reaction? You will turn and see who is the person or what's going on.

You cannot see behind unless you turn your head or there is a mirror or any sort of reflection in front of you. When someone attacks you if you see that just before that attacker makes his move, you can do something not to be in that situation.

In case the attacker grabs your throat and chokes you, this is a serious situation. Even if you know how to defend yourself against that, you have to make your move fast, otherwise, you cannot do much to protect yourself.

If you just try to kick the attacker who is behind you and choking you, you might hit him but you cannot see him or he can do something else. To defend yourself against choking from behind, take steps back and turn your body. Now you can face the attacker.

Here the key factor is stepping back and using your whole body to turn. As soon as you turn, you can attack the attacker with your hands. Can you do a knee charge?

It depends on how close you are. If the attacker's hands are not bent, you cannot knee him from that distance. You can use your hands to strike and release his hands from your throat.

So what would you do in a situation like this? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section. I am making this post to spread awareness, at least you know what possible options you have to defend yourself. I appreciate your support and feedback.

Stay safe. Always be happy!
