Alternative defense tools: What have you used?

I fell down the Amazon rabbit hole… and came across this. Anyone ever use this? It’s a deterrent probably mostly intended for protection against animals, but maybe it has other applications in self-defense.

Anything else you have used with success?

@Zee So what did you type into the Amazon search engine to get this result? :thinking:

Three leaf clovers…

One day I was talking to a friend outside his house. He was telling me that clovers were edible. There was a guy walking down the street knocking on doors… probably selling something. We watch the guy get closer and closer as many people aren’t home. As he gets closer to the house, my friend gets down on all fours and starts chomping on clovers like a rabid goat eating grass. The salesman decided not to stop and talk. :grin:

@Zee Seriously. You must own one of these. On Amazon, cheap. Awesome preventative measure for any gender identity, race, religion, or age group. I actually (not joking here) used this when I lived in Chicago and had to ride the El-train late at night. Just take it out of your bag and talk to it. Have a dialogue. NO ONE will bother a crazy person.

And… as a added bonus it also works if you are selected for jury duty. Funny thing, they never pick me. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

@Jerzy that looks wicked.

But with this I can cut cat’s balls :wink:

This thing has the same issue as nunchuks, flail, etc. You can hit yourself. Now, lots of martial artists excel with nunchucks, it’s just not for everyone.

I’ve trained with and taught the Kubaton/Tactical Pen extensively but have not yet been in a situation where I had to actually use them.

Even in “gentle” training though it’s easy to see why they can be so effective.

yeah… watched my first ex train with those for martial arts… :grimacing: OUCH :crazy_face:

that wasn’t his strategy of choice on the street, but it did look flashy in competition.
