This is one example of being ready at all times and in all scenarios for the unexpected not just training in your dojo. The timing of your initial response and being able to turn thechair itself into a tool are a few ideas mentioned here. Watch this video several times and closely notice the various things Paul does with his feet, balance changes, attack and response timing, using Kyusho weakness points, putting on arm bars, incorporating Hajutsu Kuho escaping techniques, etc. A serious student would train every month to handle every day self-defense scenarios from inside a car, at a desk or table, in a public setting, etc. Also train in a variety of places such as an office cubicle vs a large banquet room or inside a small car or bathroom stall. Your awareness of your surroundings and the objects and people in it should be high enough that you would only require to defend yourself against an attacker as a last resort. Hopefully, you could be able to anticipate a threat in your environment before any aggressor would actually reach you when you are seated or otherwise vulnerable. If you detect the possibility of an imminent danger you would get away before any aggression could actually reach you or affect your safety.
