Regular Objects You Can Use As Self-Defense
Have you ever thought about what you’d do if someone tried to attack you in your home? Office? Car? At a café? Unless you’re someone who carries a weapon with you everywhere you go, you may find yourself feeling rather helpless. Nobody wants to think about such an attack even happening, but you’ve seen the news. You’ve opened your eyes and ears and heard the stories. Very few individuals who get attacked had any idea it was coming. When it occurs, you can become so frozen with terror—or simply be in denial that it’s even happening—that you just give up. But, you can familiarize yourself, right now, with common objects you have around you in your regular settings, that could actually be used as a weapon. You have more power than you think.
