This data was gathered from interviews with victims and offenders and from statements. Data only covers robbery/sexual methodology and changes relative to first contact with victim ie., venue/ night/day etc.

I'd love to see the original pages if you remember what the url is...

In fact, everyone, not here of course but other sites often 'quote' stats that are made up so always putting down the origin of the 'data' is very useful to a serious person like myself who is not interested in mere talk.

Good work guys,

sorry good people I dont have the origional reference points re statistics as i did this work a long time ago, I am due to review it shortly so will post more accurate references as part of that study.

Please not ein my origonal list ie the first one posted, it has been changed from the statistics to make it more workable in martial arts terms, the second list - male on female is as I found it.

in relation to how to deal with these assaults - well that is your instructors busienss really!

on a moere useful note you will find great simularity of technique deployed from all arts if the assaults are worked in a realistic manner, something to look out for if self defence is a key element of your reasons for training IMO.

What about when they have not touched you yet, though are screaming in your face. What would you do about that, or would you put it in the list. I guess it's right before they do something on the list.

To touch on DefendThyself post.
You should have in place as a part of your training a way to judge distance and where the threat is in your circle of control.
You need to understand if you are in a circle of situational weakness or strength. (how much of a threat does the environment around you hold)
What are your options and understand the sooner you can break the circle of conflict the less the chance of damage or expansion problems.
There are many factors that must be in play before the circle of convergence is draw and a fight begins.
The key is becoming good at seeing the signs of trouble and moving clear. So to answer the question, "what to do if they are screaming in your face". Look around and judge the situation and clam down the mood and walk a way.
space is occuplied and distance is judged and always fight the circles not the man.

I belief the info provided should be titled "Acts of physical violence summary" as violence is not necessarily confined to physical acts.

To answer your question ..... De-escalation

here is an article of mine that was recently featured as a four part series in Blitz Australasian MA magazine (part 4 is in the current issue). it's long but full of great stuff.

This is a really interesting! Nice work. I am very interested in what are the most common types of attacks, how they happen, where and when etc.

I did three articles a while ago. One focused on the UK, one the US and one Australia. It was broader and dealt with overall stuff that I built on the top of real statistics. I focused on two main areas being Assault and Robbery. The links for the articles are below:

Here are the links to some stat download areas for your viewing pleasure. I am not sure if the US ones were the exact links as it has been a while... But there are some good solid stats looking more at places, age groups, if attacker knew victim etc type stuff. Not what technique was used in the attack.

UK stats

US Stats

Australian Stats

Maybe that will be of interest to some of you.

And Drew, your link doesn't work. Good to see you here!
