  • What Is The Best Weapon for Self-Defense?

    Best Weapon for Self-DefenseAs a marketer of less-than-lethal self-defense products I often get asked, "What is the best weapon for personal protection?" People who ask me this question expect me to recommend one of my more expensive models of pepper sprays, stun guns, or Tasers. However, my answer surprises them because it is none of the above.

    What about guns?

    Guns are considered to be the ultimate self-defense weapon for good reason. Patriotically referred to as "freedoms teeth" they are invaluable for defense against tyranny which is the reason the Founders of the United States of America sought to protect the unalienable right of the American people to keep and bear arms with the Second Amendment of the Constitution. In terms of individual self-defense, a person skilled in the use of a gun has an absolute advantage over an opponent without one. Please watch the video below:

    That video epitomizes the formidable self-defense power of a firearm and I recommend that anyone serious about self-defense should own one or more guns and learn how to use them responsibly. I own several guns myself. The main disadvantage of a gun is that you can't carry it with you all the time and in some parts of the country it very difficult to own guns legally. This is also true for some types of less-than-lethal self-defense devices. Even if you have a gun in your possession you could be caught by surprise and not have the chance to deploy it. This happens to police officers far too often. If you do an Internet search with the phrase "officer shot with own gun", you can read many stories about this. If it can happen to a trained officer it can happen to anyone! So a gun is not my choice as the best weapon for self-defense.

    The absolute best weapon for self-defense is the human body (body and mind).  With the proper training, your body will be a weapon that you will have with you everywhere. It can never be taken away from you. Fraudulent, unconstitutional laws can not ban you from possessing it. With the proper mental preparation you can develop situational awareness recognize dangerous people and places so you can avoid them and thereby protect yourself passively. The best way to defend yourself is is to avoid having to defend yourself in the first place.

    If a confrontation is unavoidable you can employ psychological tactics to deescalate the situation. If that fails knowledge and training in effective, practical reality-based methods of self-defense that don't rely on raw strength will give you tactical advantage over your opponent even if he is armed and you're not!

    You must regard your body as the  foundation for self-defense. Weapons such as batons, knives, stun guns, tasers, and even firearms are merely tools that act as an extension of the body. They are far more effective in the hands of a person trained in unarmed combat than in the hands of someone who merely knows how mechanically operate them. Unarmed self-defense training will give you the confidence, balance, agility and ability to measure distance that will create opportunities that maximize the effectiveness of any weapon you may possess. In the heat of combat if your weapon is lost or fails to operate properly you will always have your bodily weapons as backup. The video below shows how vulnerable and armed officer can be when caught by surprise:

    Recently, I read about an incident in which a police officer was beaten and shot with her own gun. She tried to subdue a robbery suspect with her Taser. Tasers are highly reliable less-than-lethal weapons when used under the proper conditions but do fail on occasion as the officer experienced. Her taser failed to stop the suspect and he proceeded to beat her, take her gun and shoot her. Despite having at least two weapons the officer was severely beaten and only luck saved her life. This tragedy could have been avoided if the officer was properly trained in unarmed self-defense methods.

    Weapons in the hands of someone untrained in their use or the basics of self-defense provide a false sense of security. Therefore I recommend that anyone serious about self-defense should learn unarmed combat before or in conjunction with the acquisition of any weapons.

    The best way to learn reality-based self-defense is from a qualified instructor.  However, if for some reason that is not possible, high quality self-defense videos produced by expert self-defense instructors are a very good alternative. Are you ready to become dangerous to anyone who would dare to attack you?

  • Self-Defense and Personal Safety

    Personal safety is a very serious matter which should be considered from a holistic perspective to minimize vulnerability and maximize survival during life threatening situations.This means you must be both mentally and physically prepared to effectively defend yourself whenever necessary. After proper preparation, the use of the kind of technology featured on this site will enhance your personal safety.

    Mental preparedness should be the foundation of your personal safety system. Simple mental awareness, alertness and intuition will enable you to secure your personal safety without having to engage in conflict. For example, by being observant you might notice potentially a threatening individual, group or an unsafe place and by simply avoiding dangerous people or places you eliminate the possibility of being attacked. In this manner personal safety is just matter of using common sense to avoid putting yourself in harms way. Conversely, allowing yourself to be distracted while out in public or venturing into high risk places under the false belief that bad things only happen to other people will make you an easy target for criminals.

    The ability to control fear is vitally important for securing your personal safety. In the event you find yourself in a violent confrontation being paralyzed by fear will put you at the mercy of your attacker. Controlling fear will enable you to focus effectively the things you must do survive.The follow books are excellent guides for cultivating the proper mental preparedness for personal safety:

                       

     

    Physical preparation for personal safety involves basic physical fitness and practicing self-defense tactics under realistic scenarios. The best way to engage in this kind of preparation would be to enroll in a reality based martial arts training program taught by a qualified instructor.

    With the proper preparation, the personal safety products available on this site, such as pepper spray, stun guns, Tasers, knives, kubotons, batons, tactical pens and personal alarms will be much more effective than they would be without such preparation.
