What to Do if You Become the Victim of a Punch

I’ve been asked what protocol to follow if punched. However, since I’m the one punching and not really being punched these days, I thought it best to have The Boy respond.

Step 1: Don’t panic.

Step 2: Assess the size of your aggressor.

Step 3: Act accordingly:

In the case that your aggressor is smaller than you, “you first have to evaluate how ferocious she is,” he says. “If she is not very ferocious, you can probably scare her away with a mean look. If she is very ferocious, you can either contain her, via bear hug, or tough it out by tightening up whatever muscle is being attacked so it doesn’t hurt.”

He doesn’t know what to do when the punching aggressor is larger, but I think you could probably get away with crying. Also, inform someone larger than both of you.

A common approach is often running away while crying like a little girl. *grin*

You could use pepper spray.

Yes but is the punch spiked?

I always thought it was best to go into a blind rage, and start chocking the person with your bare hands.
