One in four women will be attacked in their lifetime and a woman's hair is a main target. Nelson Nio from Shield Self Defense gives great tips on what to do if an attacker grabs your hair.
Nelson's young student was standing on the side of the road. She was focused on the text she was writing when suddenly a man grabbed her hair from behind. Dragged her into the bushes and tried to rape her.
When someone goes up and tries to grab you hair the first thing to do is to grab your attackers hand. You do this using both of your hands. The next step is to put your elbows together to protect your face. This protects your face from any attacker.
From there you want to go under the arm. So all you do is just step back and go under and up. It's basically a twisting movement.
Whenever your hair is being grabbed. Grab your attacker's hand with both of your hands. Make sure to grab it tight. Then put your elbows together to protect your face so when you get slammed your face is protected. From there you want to go under the arm. So all you do is step back and go under and up.
So always be aware of your surroundings and remember your hair is an attackers easiest area to grab. If it does happen to you, make sure you lock your core, step back, go up and under and twist his arm. If you twist hard enough you can actually break his wrist.
