364 days a year, breaking and entering is a crime. But there's one day a year where we'll allow a man we barely know to sneak into our homes while we're asleep.
But what's the best way to protect yourself against a man who can come down your chimney by laying his finger aside of his nose?
While Krav Maga teaches you to use your natural reaction to defend yourself, the most important part of the Krav Maga timeline is the first step: avoid. If you can avoid the situation, that's the best way to keep yourself safe.
Block your chimney
Sure. Maybe the kids will be sad, but you can always just sign the name "Santa" on some gifts. But if your chimney is stopped up and closed off, that jolly old elf can't get into your home in the first place.
Know who is coming into your home
Be aware that there could be those who are casing your home during this time in the hopes of passing on information to someone else.
Who do you think is giving St. Nick the 411 on your tree location? Those little elves are definitely helping keep your kids in line, but know those sweet little faces are giving more info than you might realize.
