That makes you the aggressor... how do you handle the guy that you didn't see coming.
Try the martial art of the common dog..
You go to pet a dog.. it seems nice.. wagging the tail and such....
Your hand gets close.. what does the dog do when it goes to bite??
Does it move your hand out of the way to get to your throat?? Nope.. it shreds your freaking hand, or lower arm.... hmmmm
You take that knowledge.... you combine it with a little basic math, some self confidence, some awareness and what do you have.... Some bozo that just tried to hurt you..now has a "dead" arm.. and then you move from the arm to the neck and head..
and you don't even have to aim.. just gross motor motions...
