In this episode, I breakdown a road rage incident and provide some options for dealing with confrontation. The outcome of this could have been much worse. Although this guy had some serious skills, he also had luck and circumstance on his side. Check it out!
My goal is to be absent of violence. If I can’t be absent, I look to avoid. If time and circumstance permits and I can’t avoid, I will attempt to de-escalate or redirect. If that fails, my last option is to use defensive skills. Staying level headed and not allowing your emotions to control your actions is vital to good decision making. Do you think this guy made the right decisions based on what you’ve learned in this post?
