How to Tell If You’re Being Set Up in 2 Seconds Or Less

How to Tell If You’re Being Set Up in 2 Seconds Or Less


In order for anyone to impose their will on you they have to get close to you. There are only 3 possible ways they can accomplish this:

1. They approach you
2. You approach them
3. They use the environment to get close to you (hide in doorways, behind delivery trucks)

We’ll focus on 1 and 2 for right now. Criminals are cunning; they will not step out and yell “Stick em up”. They know how to play on your sympathy and good nature to get close to you. They’ll be extremely persuasive and lure you into places that compromise your safety. Like predators, they’ll try to separate you from the heard. One of the ways they will distract you is to ask you for directions, the time, for spare change – anything that will occupy your hands, and more importantly your attention.

So, how do you know if someone is asking for directions or trying to set you up?

Easy, just say, “I don’t know” and keep moving. If they continue to press you, there’s your answer. What else could they possibly want? Hey, you don’t have to be rude, be polite but KEEP MOVING. If they follow you, then they really didn’t need directions in the first place.

If you choose to answer them, now you’re going to have prolems. While you’re giving them directions, the time, a match or whatever- their “partner” assaults you from your back. Then its over and there’s no martial art or self defense system in the world that will help you.

I know we don’t like to think that, but facts are facts. Prevent the assault before it happens, avoid it for your best chance and attack first for your only chance.
