Many thanks to a true Odinist warrior, who wishes to remain anonymous, for this marvelous article on self defense for Odinist ladies. White women and children are the most targeted of all creatures on the planet and we need Odinist men to protect us and to teach us how to protect ourselves and children when men are not around. Just today I was sitting on the front porch of a friend’s house and some sort of subhuman slowed down and looked at me, clearly with some pretty bad intentions… That is the way they think and we need to be ready to deal with them just as they deserve…
The best defense is the avoidance of conflict. The next best defense is a brutal, unexpected attack on target. The next best defense is a conventional defense. The worst possible option is being caught unaware and off-guard.
So, what can one do for self-defense, really? The main thing that everyone can do is to observe their surroundings and notice anything out of place when it starts. There are two main sources of violence. The most serious one is military/paramilitary, the less serious one is criminal violence. Our ladies are presently under a far greater threat of lowlife criminals on a daily basis, so I will be mainly dealing with criminal violence in this article. The other one is a much more involved affair.
Several things are necessary for criminal violence. Those things are the Intent, Interview, Positioning, Attack, and Reaction.
The Intent (also called “jeopardy” now, legally, because it is difficult to prove intent) to attack someone from a common criminal develops in his mind, mostly subconsciously. However, most of the time these are not very disciplined people. You should be able to detect huge shifts in body language. You should really pay more attention to body language and nonverbal cues than words anyway. You will probably also feel that something is out of place even at this first step. Most people need time to mentally prepare themselves to become violent, and virtually all petty criminals will need this phase.
You can tell at a glance if someone is angry. There are lots of signals like muscle tension, body posture, movement, breathing patterns, skin flush/paling, speech cadence, tone, and word choice. A lot of times they will try to hide this with other, seemingly innocent behavior or actions.
If you see this sort of thing developing and you want the safest possible option, just leave the area, and refrain from putting yourself somewhere where you can’t just leave. Not putting yourself in this first phase makes it impossible to have the next four develop and cuts out criminal behavior before it starts.
The Interview is where the criminal sees if you are safe to attack. In a regular interview, he will approach you and ask for something like information or a small item as a distraction. He is looking for whether you are noticing what he is doing and whether you are ready to defend yourself.
If you don’t look like an easy target, a criminal will look for someone else to mess with. If it was an upset individual, they will usually stand back and proceed to verbally abuse you or something instead (so they can tell themselves they “won,” or whatever). If someone approaches you in a fringe area and asks for something, your answer should always be “no” and insist on him keeping his distance. Muggers and stranger rapists often use this technique.
This sort of thing is very simple, but a lot of people are not very violent and just don’t think about it, but if someone is closing distance to you, and you have told them not to, they have already indicated a lot of intent right there. You can assume at that point that someone is trying to physically get a hold of you, and that type of thinking is what this is all about.
There are other interviews, though, like the hot interview. A hot interview is someone just popping out of nowhere and yelling and screaming and charging at you. This very similar to the context of a lot of conventional warfare, and the most common place I ever saw this was drill instructors back in boot camp. It is basically just designed to overwhelm you. The reason that is a thing in the introduction to the Marine Corps is to prepare you and get you used to that exact same behavior (so that it no longer throws you off your game). The best way to deal with someone that runs at you yelling and screaming is to immediately shift to an extreme level of violence. If you display that commitment up front, the attacker will often abort.
Another interview type is kind of a hybrid of the first two. It is the escalating interview. It starts out normally but rapidly turns hostile. Someone doing this is testing your boundaries. The more you allow that to escalate, the more it will, in all probability. It is common to date rapists and also if you were to walk into a group of loitering young thugs. Usually “jes messin’ witcha” will escalate into a robbery and/or assault.
A silent interview is where someone just observes you and is likely to never speak until the attack. It is possible that he may make his presence known. If that happens, you are more likely to be attacked if you look afraid. This type of interview is more likely to be a much more dangerous individual than the others (because he had the discipline to be watching quietly). Quiet ones are a hell of a lot more dangerous than a brazen, loud braggart. That’s just my opinion.
A prolonged interview can last weeks. They are often combined with other types. Stalking is a prolonged interview. With a prolonged interview, you usually cannot tell intent right at the beginning.
The next phase of a crime is positioning. You will almost never be robbed in the middle of a crowd, but in an area adjacent to where most people are. This means you will be close to people, but out of range of immediate help. You won’t be mugged in the mall, but you might be at bathrooms, ATMs, parking lots, stairwells, and sidewalks. Even a separate room in a crowded house can be a fringe area.
Once again, if you tell someone to stay back in a fringe area and they close distance with you, you know their intentions are not good. There are several ways they can close. They can just walk up to you, they can try to trap you between them and a wall, they can try to surprise you, they can employ a pincer, or they can surround you. Sometimes one of them may try to distract you while the others move around you. Serious danger signs in these cases are someone following you (if they’re spaced out along where you’re walking) or a group that’s already spaced out along where you’re walking (they can all fold in when you’re in the middle).
If you have let the situation develop along these three steps, only now we arrive at the Attack. The best thing for your safety is to not let it develop this far, but at this point you can either be intimidated into giving something up or assaulted outright. The instant it gets to this point you are legally justified in using force yourself. If the threat is lethal, involves a deadly weapon, etc., then you are legally justified in using deadly force.
If you want to remain legal at this point, you have to stop using force once the threat has been neutralized. This way it remains “defense.”
The key note of Reaction is that, like the Attack, it is impossible to predict. Leave the area after an episode of violence. You still aren’t safe immediately following the Attack. You can be harmed even if you rolled over and cooperated, so you are better off avoiding it in the first place.
