Lone Wolf attacks have been happening all over the world. Defending yourself against a lone wolf attack may be difficult or even impossible, but you have to do something to prepare regardless. Below are some video techniques that might help you survive this type of attack.
What is the “Lone Wolf”?
Wikipedia defines it as:
“A lone wolf or lone-wolf fighter is someone who commits or prepares for, or is suspected of committing or preparing for, violent acts in support of some group, movement, or ideology, but who does so alone, outside of any command structure and without material assistance from any group.”
In the U.S. legal context, the lone wolf is associated with the U.S. terror-law FISA, bearing in mind that U.S. terror-law comprises non-violent, as well as violent acts. Moreover, a lone wolf can be so defined on the mere basis of suspicion (“reasonable belief”, not actual charges). Probable cause is not required.”
Knowing your environment is key to surviving one of these attacks – they can come out of no where.
The biggest thing is being situationally aware of your environment. The next thing is to have the right training to fight back – be it self-defense courses (MMA, BJJ, Judo, Wrestling, Boxing, etc) or handgun use.
