If you are unarmed and do not know martial arts, what's the most effective way to defend yourself?
If you are attacked by a man, aim for his scrotum with your knee. Make sure you are positioned for maximum impact (from beneath his legs upwards). Thus, this may require you to feign giving up so that the attacker can move within your striking distance. Once you connect, look for the nearest exit and run like hell. You will have at least five minutes head start before your attacker recovers from the excruciating pain. Alternatively, look for a weapon such as a hand gun or knife and finish the job!
If a woman attacks you, aim for the diaphragm (area between the chest and stomach) with your clenched fist and punch from your chest outwards for maximum impact. Don't throw a "round" punch; the punching movement has to be from your chest outwards. Exhale as you do this and you will be surprised by the power in such a punch. The attacker should double over immediately in agony. Men should not use this maneuver on an attacking woman unless the intention is to kill such as if she is armed with a gun and he has a genuine belief that she is about to fire. A strong man punching a woman in this way would definitely crack her ribs.
You are pretty much S.O.L. In most so-called civilized countries such as Britain and the U.S., you are effectively prohibited from defending yourself effectively. You face as much or more penalty than an attacker. All the police do is draw the chalk outline around your body, and if you are important (or a child, sob, sniffle) they may devote some time to trying to solve who killed you.

Hopefully, you can create some sort of distraction and run fast.
Don't defend yourself. Think smart and determine where your best exit strategy lies. Remain alert and in your right state of mind and look for a way out of the situation.
Otherwise, attack to kill with everything you have and then suffer the legal consequences and jail time for defending yourself. I have never seen anyone fight back after having their eyeball pull out or off. That is your easiest and best defense if you have no skills or mind, but you will go to jail and your attacker will be hailed as the victim.
First and best method is to be a peaceable person. Second is to run. But, when cornered, go ahead and attack at the first opportunity.
Many years ago, the Holy Spirit sent me three dreams in which I had to fight a superior opponent. Each time, the Holy Spirit told me, "As long as what you are doing is right, I will not hand you over to him."
A few days after the 3rd dream, I was mugged by an armed man. I remembered to not be afraid. I fought him, and I won. Then, I did something I had never done before- I preached Jesus, faith, and faithfulness.
