Long blog full of lots of info - and I must say I'd agree - if I lived in any other country other than the UK! We are NOT allow to carry those weapons! Some years ago a woman was attacked and she used her own finger nails to scratch her attackers face............ she was fined and went to jail because her nails were classed as a dangerous weapon!!!!!!!
So in this country its all about avoidance, but having said that, I WOULD use anything at hand and then go to jail if it meant survival........
I have grown increasingly concerned about the safety of many of my spark friends who place them selves in potentially dangerous situations...especially those that can arise from exercising along, at night, or in high risk areas. Way back when I was a dorm counselor and had policemen and self defense instructors come in yearly to talk to the students. But the info they offered is basic and can literally save the life of anyone who finds themselves in a dangerous situation. Please post this blog to your groups on on Facebook...send it to anyone you love or care about...reprint it. I don't care if I get "credit" for it. I am basically just repeating what I have been taught from instructors..and the most important thing is getting the info OUT THERE to everyone! It can save their LIFE! it's that important! www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo ur nal_individual.asp?blog_id=4138905
