Self defence and self protection are an important priority for everyone. The best way for people to fight back against crime is to prevent it from happening by avoiding being alone, being in badly lit areas, avoid known places where there is a lot of crime. but that doesn't help the people who live in those areas and have no choice about where they can go. So getting into such situations is sometimes inevitable. The majority of attacks and muggings occur when you least expect them, the best chance for survival is to fight back. Fighting back is not just necessary, but it is a moral right because protecting one’s self is paramount. Self defence is important.
