    How could I possibly win a fight against someone bigger and stronger than me?

    You can't.

    You might be able to do things you never thought you could do if your body responds to attack by a huge surge of adrenaline. That's what allows people to lift cars off injured relatives. But you can't rely on your reaction being strong enough to overcome your normal physical limitations.

    You run. Or get help somehow.

    Or you get yourself some self-defence training which would give you better decision-making skills about when you should and when you shouldn't try to fight your way out of these situations.

    (I know there are some exceptional people who can win fights against people who are bigger and stronger than they are. Most of the time, those other people may be bigger but in fact they aren't stronger, it just looks superficially as though they are. There are plenty of small men and average sized women who are much stronger than bigger men or women. Think of ballet dancers, gymnasts and other athletes - these people are seriously strong even though they're not trained to fight. )

    In a sporting fight you can't. To win a real fight against someone bigger and stronger, don't try to overpower him. Break the rules and hurt him. You know how to hurt a Hummer with nothing but a nailfile? That kinda thing.

    Bring pepper spray with you where ever you go. If somebody is attacking, pepper spray them.
    This is good for strong men too; after a woman hits first, and with society being quick to defend the female in nearly every violence situation, it's good to defend yourself without actually hitting.
