Many years ago, when I was a teenager, I read in some advice book on physical self defense written by Ben Weider that people have two choices in front of an enemy. 1: Run away; or 2: If you cannot run, fight for the kill to survive.
In 2016, the advices of my old friend Ben Weider are still the only way recommended if you are the target of a physical attack by another person terrorist.
GUIDE: WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE ATTACKED BY A TERRORIST-
By The U.S. Department of Homeland Security
You have only three choices if you are attacked by a terrorist shooter:
1. Run away from the place;
2. Go hide in another room and lock the entrance;
3. Fight the attacker up front with any improvised weapon on the spot.
