You can prepare against different threats by practicing
how to quickly reach the objects and how to use those effectively and
Before using or even practicing these techniques, please
read and understand my notice to avoid getting into legal difficulties.
Unfortunately during a confrontation situation your imagination
will not usually be fast enough to invent weapons out of these objects,
so planned objects should be carried. Always practice how to quickly
and effectively use them.
The first idea to prevent confrontation is to avoid the
places and situations where these can occur.
Using your environment...
In survival confrontations everything at hand should
be used including things that are around you, on or with
you. Wherever you are everything has the potential to be a weapon.
A life threatening situation is a matter of survival and the person
being attacked should aim to win by using anything that comes to hand.
There is only one rule if you are attacked. You must
survive. You have to to do everything you can: Scream, scratch, bite
(possibility you could be infected with HIV so use only, if there
are no other possibilities), hit or kick, attack with a common object,
do all that is needed to end the threat or to have enough time to
Objects you can use...
Everything that surrounds you. Indoors for example:
ashtrays, chairs, bottles, kitchen utensils etc. can all be used as
weapons. Outdoors for example, one can use, sand, stones, coins etc.
to throw. Bricks and wood can be used to strike with. An opponent
can be thrown against sharp pointed gates, railings and walls etc.
You can even drive over your opponent. (One thief stole a car and
drove over the owner so that she was not able to recognize him later)
(that you can hit with): stones, sand, coins, iron balls,
Objects you strike opponents with:
also stones, knives, pencils, iron sticks, crochet or knitting needles,
etc. You can attack also by using your cellular phone like a stone.
Any aerosol can, hair spray, spray paint, pepper, tear gas etc.
Objects on you...
Due to the awareness of violence, people take it upon
themselves to carry illegal self-defense weapons. These weapons are
usually quite obvious and even though they may successfully ward off
attacks, they can bring a lot of legal difficulties for the user.
Many very effective, perfectly legal weapons which still produce the
same results, may be carried instead.
At any one time people unconsciously carry many
potential weapons. For example, belts may be used as a garrotte or
a whip with the buckle, coins may be thrown into the face of an opponent
to stun and blind him, clothes may be used to whip, ward off attacks,
choke and obscure vision etc.
Most women carry handbags which can also be used to
strike or strangle. In addition, these handbags contain an arsenal
of potential, legal weapons e.g. a lipstick case to poke into the
eyes, a hair brush to scratch across the eyes, perfume to spray into
the eyes etc.
People are often unaware of the potential legal weapons
they are carrying. Unfortunately during a confrontation situation
your imagination will not usually be fast enough to invent weapons
out of these objects, so planned objects should be carried. Always
practice how to quickly and effectively use them.
When choosing or planning how to use common objects,
consider the following:
how to quickly and effectively use them. When you are
in danger, do not hesitate to use them! Attack quickly, and if possible,
vulnerable points by using a lot of power.
You might have only one possibility to defend yourself,
do not lose it.
