Self Defense and your Part

Posted in Resources By SelfDefenseSS

Self Defense and your Part
We want to do more than be your online source of self defense products like pepper spray and stun guns, we want to educate you on what to do with those items and try to teach you how to use them.

First thing we want you to know is that you can not use what you don't have, to quote: "Plan for the Worst and hope for the Best" puts it into the best perspective.

Date Rape
Use of a defense spray to prevent date rape is done much the same way as any other assault. The only difference is that you must first recognize what is happening, then verbally attempt to stop the man's behavior. Once you say "Stop!" in a forceful way, and he doesn't comply, you have every right to stop the continued aggressive behavior with your Pepper Spray or other Self Defense Device you have, but remember to do it quickly so that you gain the advantage of surprise, aim your Pepper Spray directly for his/her face for maximum effectiveness.

Immobilized Victim
The other special circumstance you may be faced with is being grabbed by an assailant before you have a chance to react as previously described. This would typically be the case if you were suddenly attacked from behind or from another direction. The key factor is whether or not you have the freedom to retreat or use the spray on the assailant. In this situation, your best chance is to draw the spray, assume the ready position with your hand on the spray. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and create a fog with the spray to surround you and your assailant. The only advantage you have in this scenario is that you know what's going to happen and the assailant doesn't. In essence you force him to breathe in the spray while you're not. If done successfully, the assailant will either release or relax his hold on you. The moment he does, break free from him, turn and spray in a controlled manner as you retreat and escape. If the assailant grabs and immobilizes your arms and you can't get the spray out, fight to free the hand closest to your Pepper Spray.

There are certain situations where immediate retreat is impossible. The two most common are when there are multiple assailants that have surrounded you, and when you are trapped or cornered with no avenue of retreat. If you find yourself surrounded by multiple assailants you must do two things immediately. First, assuming the assailants are within range, disperse a full 360-degree circle of spray at head level, again creating a barrier the assailants must pass through to get to you. This may break up the pack quickly, or it may not.
