Know your exits before you need them!
This tip applies to self preservation in general. Anytime you go into a new environment, understand that the way you arrived is the same way that everyone else arrived as well. If a crowd runs for and exit, it will be the same way they all came in. In the middle of a crowd trying to get though just 1 small door is simply not a good place for you.
Similarly in a self defense situation, the exit that someone may be blocking is typically only AN option not THE option.
Look around and find your exits before you need them, often there are several choices if we only take time to pay attention to our environment.
