There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This is a very broad and general question that will produce endless varieties of answers. Is there something specific that you are looking for? Have you researched anything yourself? – Matt Chan Apr 17 '14 at 2:07

If you are looking for tips on how to be safe, then I am a big fan of Mark "Animal" MacYoung's No Nonsense Self Defence. It has a lot of good advice on self defence form prevention to running to safety to decreasing the risk of getting attacked. Also, the site highlights a lot of myths and rubbish which is branded as self defence.

If on the other hand, you are looking for the mythical fighting technique that will work all the time, be effective, and that you can learn from youtube... I have some bad news for you: it does not exist. The best you can expect is scammers and/or idiots.
