"Of all the stun guns we have, this Blast Knuckles product is one of my favorites. I personally use this product whenever I go out jogging in the early morning hours or late at night.
Sometimes, if I don't check the batteries, I still feel confident having this unit that fits neatly in the fist of my hand since the plastic housing of this device is hard enough to SMASH the cartilage in the attacker's nose.
There are no worries about the excess baggage of using a handgun in the event I have to use my stun guns. The fear factor is totally eliminated whenever I have this thing."--Fabiola Castillo, NinjaCOPS article marketer, 5-14-2010
3 Most Wanted Tools for Self Defense
By Fabiola Castillo
The need for self defense is often underrated by most of the people out there. Many of them think that they are good in avoiding trouble, and there is no need of learning self defense techniques or buying the self defense items. Crime waves are wide spread in this modern world, and threatening surprises are everywhere you go. We are not trying to make you get frightened about the society; instead, we just need you to be aware that you too are exposed to the treats in the public. The threatening strangers such as the chain snatchers, hijackers, and home robbers may show up in your life in any unexpected time, and you need to be well prepared to face and subdue them on your own. It is a well known fact that you cannot spend several years in practicing certain martial arts for the sake of self defense in real life. All you need is the right tool for protecting you. Following up is the information about the three (3) best tools that are available today for self defense.
1. Stun Guns
Many people have a misconception that having stun guns for personal safety is illegal. The true fact is that owning stun guns for personal self defense is legal in almost all parts of the world except in a very few parts of the United States. To the added advantage, no license is needed to carry a stun gun in the public. The stun guns are completely non-lethal and can be effectively used for subduing a person who poses an unavoidable threat to you and your family. The stun guns are not necessarily shaped as the conventional lethal guns. They come in different shapes such as the cell phones. Power supply is the main factor to be considered while buying stun guns. Obviously, the more the electric power, the more effective the stun gun will be.
2. The Pepper Spray
Pepper spray is widely used today by the government authorities for crowd control. Unlike the tear gas, pepper spray does not cause any permanent injury, and that is the reason why it is 100% legal to use them for self defense purposes. Moreover, you do not have to get hours of training to use the pepper spray correctly in case of any emergency. Pepper spray is available in compact shapes such as pens, lip sticks, keychains etc.
3. The Nunchaku
Nunchaku is properly known as the ninja stealth weapon. The nunchaku comes in handy for self defense if your are little aware of the martial arts. While it is true that you will have to undergo years of training to master the use of nunchaku, few hours of practice will be sufficient for handling this weapon for self defense. You can find training videos and articles online for using nunchaku for self defense.
To have a stress-free life in this peaked crime environment, the above mentioned self defense items are indispensable.
