Pre-defence is what not to do to not get yourself in a bad situation. You've survived until now so maybe you already know some of the tips. But it comes to, you've already survived until now. So if someone comes up to you posturing, we try not to engage. We understand how easy it is to injure the human body.
Our pre-defence is we acknowledge that life is a non-renewable resource. If someone wants my life or my car keys, I will give them my keys in a heartbeat. I can get another car. I have insurance. I won't fight for my keys. I will fight for this body though.
If you have a chance to walk somewhere where it's safe or somewhere where it's not safe, it's always better to walk where it's safe. That might sound really, "well, yeah." But, I've got to say it because some people might voice, "so that's where I've been going wrong all this time" or "but I like the adventure." You might like the adventure but then you have to face the consequence that someday you might get stabbed or shot or struck.
Be prepared to accept the consequences as they are based in reality, not based on what has or hasn't happened to you. "But I like going to the adventurous place and nothing has ever happened to me so I can just continue doing it." You were fortunate, that is all.
You're the person that hasn't wound up on the news. It doesn't mean it's going to be like that for your whole life. That's why if you know that there's a safer location or a safer route, you take it. That comes into your pre-defence.
We try to avoid those places if we can. If you can't avoid them, then you just have to be prepared and understand that you are in the surroundings where something bad might happen. Okay? So if you have to go somewhere unsafe, you have to be switched on, you have to be prepared.
