Weapons for Self Defense
one of my students will ask me what I think about using weapon
for self defense. They are not talking about guns or even knives
but the more common things like pepper sprays, key batons, mace,
there are a few problems with these type of weapons. First,
you have to have the weapon ready and available when you need
it. The reality is you never know when you are going to be attacked.
Sure, there are some situations which develop slowly and you
may have the opportunity to reach into your pocket or purse
and get out your pepper spray but I wouldn't count on it.
you imagine fumbling with your glove box door, purse or even
your coat pocket, trying to get to your weapon while you are
under the effects of an adrenal dump!
if you have the weapon ready when that dreaded time comes, there
is another serious problem. That is that unless you can disguise
it, your attacker is going to immediately know that you possess
lose the all important element of surprise which is one of the
fundamental foundations of good self defense. Your attacker
knows what you have and what and how you intend to use it.
scenario is if you know how to take just about anything in your
environment and turn it into a viscious weapon of self defense.
ago I learned this technology from a very private and somewhat
strange martial art master. I have only taught this to small
groups of people a few times over the year until recently.
night after a self defense class I was speaking to a couple
of my black belts about this system and before you know it there
was a crowd of students asking questions about it. I hesitantly
agreed to teach a class on it and was surprised at the interest
filmed the entire process and now have it available at
www.self-defense-weapons.com. It truly levels the playing
field against bigger and stronger attackers.
