Basic Scenarios?

Hi All

I'm looking for some reading material on basic urban "self defense required" scenarios if that makes sense. What to do when you suspect a potential BG is walking up on you on the street, etc. etc. Any suggestions?

I would start with Marc MacYoung's

He does not present specific "scenarios," but he does an excellent (if verbose) job of explaining the criminal mind and helping you see what a criminal needs to accomplish in order to attack. Start with the page about Five Stages of Violent Crime, and then with one about Criminal Mindset. Browse from there.

Armed with those principles, you can analyze scenarios yourself.
