How to Use Improvised Weapons for Self-Defense

When you are in a situation where you need to defend yourself, you need to use all tools and resources to your advantage.

This means that anything you find can also be used as a weapon. However, you also need to be careful about the use of improvised weapons so your attacker doesn’t use it against you.

When you’re practicing your self-defense skills, one of the techniques you should also practice is the ability to see everything as a weapon.

Developing your instincts so you can view everything as a weapon is an important aspect that can definitely come in handy when you need to defend yourself.

So, what items can be used as a self-defense improvised weapon?

It could be anything really.

From items you carry on you to ones you can find in your environment. Whether it’s a pair of keys, a pen, a heavy object your carrying, or something hard on the floor, anything can really be used as an improvised weapon.

Don’t forget. Your goal is not necessarily to use it and fight your attacker.

Your main goal should be to use it to distract your attacker long enough so you can escape.

Obviously, there’s a good chance that your attacker might be larger than you. So, you need to be smart when you want to use an improvised weapon.

Fast and efficient to create the desired impact giving you enough time to escape should be your main objective.
