Grab to the Hijab
Hijab grabs are a very common hate crime attack. If this happens to you, you should not be afraid to speak up and report it to your local police department.
Hot tip: This is a Super Important Step
A hijab grab is also choking you. Immediately drop your chin! This will prevent you from choking, allow you to breathe, and allow you to remain calm. Remember to keep breathing.
If they don't let go
Spin inwards towards them, as you raise your elbow for Step 3
Send your elbow
into their chin or face
Maryam and Rana both advocate using multiple strikes to pressure points in situations where you're under attack. Use the momentum of your turn to strike upwards!
If your hijab is grabbed from the front, use the Blocking Shoves technique: Windmill your arm, as if you're swimming, in a swift motion to knock away their hand.
