Self-Defense Weapons - What Do They Say About YouThese days, there are more and more self-defense gadgets being invented, produced, and marketed than ever before. You can buy everything from cellphone tasers and electrified, no-touch jackets to knives hidden in lipstick tubes. What do these weapons in disguise say about you as a martial artist?
Useful Disguised Weapons
You probably don't want to read this, but the most useful disguised weapon is no disguise at all. The best weapon is an everyday object ... either something impromptu or a regular object, like a ball point pen, that you carry with you.
Of course, anything utilized as a weapon can be deemed a weapon in a court of law. But a disguised weapon has a hidden element. The courts will perceive it as a concealed weapon, almost every time.
Note: I am not a lawyer. So, I am not offering legal advice. The above is just a statement of observation. You need to take legal responsibility for your own actions.
Still, if you are determined to carry a disguised weapon, then make sure it's practical. If you can't use it in an emergency, then what's the use of having it?
Useless Secret Weapons
A concealed weapon becomes impractical if you can't get to it in time. A tube of lipstick in your purse won't help you in an attack, if ... it's in your purse.
You'd have to unsnap or unzip the purse, find the lipstick (oops, that one is a real lip gloss), get the cap off, and twist up the concealed blade ... all while you are being attacked.
If you have your weapon at the ready, then it is "less concealed." And you might be showing your attacker that you have something, if you aren't good at concealment.
And if your weapon is put away, then you have to be able to get to it and get it into play, all while adrenaline is coursing through your body. Have you ever tried precise, motor-skill actions while completely afraid?
It's next to impossible.
You need a basic weapon that you can get to.
There are three types of people who buy disguised weapons. Your relationship to your weapon says a lot about you:
People with no martial training whatsoever buy a weapon as a substitute for skill. In their minds, sending 25,000 volts into someone trumps any martial-arts skill. (Not always the case, by the way.) Take away the weapon and they have nothing. No training to rely on. Game over.
The second type of customer is the martial artist -- one who lack confidence in his or her skill. Take away their weapons, and they panic. These are the types who rely on their weapons too much.
Finally, some competent martial artists buy a weapon to carry hidden. They know how to fight with or without the disguised (or concealed) weapon. The weapon only comes out in a self-defense situation, and often not too early in the confrontation....
