Where to Get Self Defense Products There are a lot of folks who mistakenly believe that law enforcement officials are around to protect you. Excuse me-not going to happen! I have the utmost admiration and respect for law enforcement but they can no more do that than walk on water. Only in a generic sense can they create an atmosphere that fosters and encourages safety. In the real world that doesn't count. The hard facts are that it is a dangerous world out there with drugs, gangs, robberies, assaults, rapes, home invasions etc. And if you honestly believe that innocent bystanders will stop and help you in a time of need think again (unfortunately). Perhaps someone will put their life on the line to help a stranger but I doubt that too. The burden of defending yourself falls on your shoulders. It is your responsibility to defend yourself your family and your home-no one else is going to do it. I hope that doesn't shock you too much. You can purchase a variety self defense products online including videos with instructions on how to defend yourself. If you are wondering how effective those self defense products are-most law enforcement agencies use them as well. Start with a basic self defense DVD to learn the basic self defense techniques-maybe a Jeet Kune Do type training class. That way you will learn some fundamental self defense techniques in a no rules world that will go a long way to helping you when the time comes. Then get some self defense products like pepper sprays, personal alarms, a stun gun or even a taser. I would suggest you get a personal alarm and pepper spray, or a pepper spray and stun gun. Get two items just in case one doesn't do it. For example if you miss with a pepper spray you will still have the stun gun.
Now you are more prepared to defend your self and family in case of an assault. Practice! Practice what you will do in many scenarios so when the time comes it will be second nature to you. Then learn how self defense products work and how to use them. That knowledge alone will boost your self confidence. Learn the optimum application points and run through scenarios in your mind or with a friend so when the time comes to use your stun gun you won't hesitate.
