Safety Awareness & Self Defense: Circle of Safety


Safety Awareness & Self Defense is the responsibility of each individual. Knowing your surroundings and being aware of potential dangers is your first step towards self-defense. Avoiding and distancing yourself from circumstances that could be trouble are your responsibility.

The Circle of Safety is an imaginary boundary extending from your body outward to approximately 7 to 10 feet. By being aware what is approaching your Circle of Safety you can potentially avoid a dangerous situation. If you were alone and a stranger enters your circle of safety, you should attempt to distance yourself from that stranger. In order for the stranger to grab you, they must be able to touch you. If you maintain a circle of safety of the 7 to 10 feet than the stranger will not be in reach to grab or touch you.

If possible avoid walking alone.

Always attempt to be in a group, or at least in public areas where there are many other people.

Avoid walking at night where there are no streetlights.

Be aware of potential hiding places for dangerous strangers, behind bushes, in alleys, behind large trash dumpsters.

As you approach these potential hazardous areas extend your circle of safety by distancing yourself from these obstacles.

These few tips can mean the difference from being a victim or a safe pedestrian.
