Safety is a priority in this day and age. Weapons of self defense have always been a priority for many people, but just think about what’s going on in the world today. It seems like every day we wake up, there is another mass shooting in the news. Do you feel safe out there on the streets? Depending on where you live, you might have more to be concerned about than others.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you need to have a gun and a license to carry. That is one choice, but there are many weapons of self defense. The martial arts teaches students to use their own bodies when it comes to self defense. Of course, there are many different weapons that are also utilized within the different forms of martial arts.
If you’re not wanting to learn karate, and you don’t want to carry a gun, there are still many other options. For example, you can carry a stun gun. A stun gun will incapacitate an attacker when used effectively, and there are many models of these weapons of self defense available on the market. If you’re uncomfortable with a stun gun, then there is another great option.
Have you considered carrying pepper spray or mace? Pepper spray is an effective tool to take down an attacker without using deadly force, just like the Vipertek stun gun is able to do. People are sometimes worried about accidentally stunning themselves with the stun guns. While that’s not likely to happen, pepper spray is a preferred choice many times as a self defense weapon.
In my city, many people carry a knife with them at all times. I do sometimes, but I don’t always get in the habit of doing that. If you are realizing that you need to be taking self defense more seriously, what are you planning to do about it?
