How To Defend Yourself Against an Attack

in Spray

In order to defend yourself in an attack which will stop the attacker but still keep you safe, what should you do? Below are safe ways you should consider if you want to protect yourself.


1. Buy a Gun- Some states allow you to purchase and carry a gun on your person. Yes guns are very effective in stopping an attacker but there are several draw backs. If you shoot someone in most cases you lose your gun because the cops need to take it into evidence and you never see it again. Studies show that in most cases where police officers have been has been with their own gun. After you fire your weapon at the attacker...what is behind him? Where is the bullet going to go. Is there someone behind the attacker? Taking the time to look and see can cost you dearly.


2. Learn Karate- Learning karate is something I definitely recommend. It not only teaches you to defend yourself but, it also teaches you self control and discipline. This is a great tactic if you are alone and there are not too many attackers. If someone is with you.. the longer you have to fight the attackers off the more you are putting yourself and whoever is with you at risk. You need to end the attack quick and get yourself and your friend out of there.


3. Buy Self Defense Weapons- Buying self defense weapons such as pepper spray, stun guns, and tasers is probably the safest method of defending yourself as they put nobody's life at risk. If the attacker were to get a hold of your pepper spray, stun gun, or your taser. Your life is in no immediate danger as these are non-lethal self defense weapons. Additional benefits of self defense weapons are they are quick to use and you don't have to worry about any innocent bystanders getting hurt.


Effects of each -


Pepper Spray - pepper spray immediately penetrates the pores of the skin, temporarily swells the eyes and mucas membranes and makes breathing difficult.


Stun Guns - Stun guns will turn the attackers muscles into jelly and depending on the voltage can sometimes cause the attacker to lose consciousness.


Tasers - Tasers have the same effects as a stun gun with the added bonus you can be standing up to 16 feet away from the attacker and still use the self defense weapon.


In closing I would say that the best thing you can do in an attack to protect yourself and your loved ones is to have some pepper spray in your car and on your person at all times. When an attack happens you can spray them with the pepper spray. This will throw them off guard and in most cases stop the attack all together.


Sometimes in rare occasions the attacker is used to pepper spray but it will still slow them down long enough for you to pull out a taser or a stun gun. Not too many people are immune to the effects of these self defense weapons. Once they are stunned by one of these weapons you will have time to get away. A word of warning...Though they are very effective the effects of a stun gun or taser are only temporary. Don't stick around to admire your work. Do what you have to do and get out of there.
