For self defense purposes, both are great. They will help you against the attackers. But be sure that if ever you have one, you are 18 years above and it is legal in your area or city.

Default Simple

1. A roll of quarters
2. A cane, strike below the lenth of a man's arm length on his leg.
3. Or, a surf casting fishing poll handle.
4. Metal extention paint roller handle
5. Metal flute of 18"
6. Rock in a sock.
7. Replacement hammer handle-wood or fiberglass.
8. Walking stick or staff.
9. Metal extending hiking staff==like a ski pole.
10. Be very physically fit to begin with.
11. Watch a man's eyes, chest and foot steps--they lead the attack. Right handed people move (in general with their rear right foot) with their right foot-so you move to the opposite side and attack.
That is it for now.

But, add a excellant radar and street smarts to avoid any confrountations. Oh, I forgot. A tightly rolled up magazine like "Newsweek" works great, and it can be taped tightly as well but does not need to be in a clinch. Or, a "bic" pen or sharpened wooden pencil--strike into the neck, face or leg.

there are stun guns.
Stun guns are applied directly to the body and not the kind that shoot darts.
Stun guns come in a variety of power levels.
I used to use a 75kv one on long trips when I needed to wake up.

Yeah! better have one. This are just as effective as nay other weapons but just less fatal and easy to use. The law might just consider your side in case you will use it for emergency.

Ok, hopefully you dont believe everything to see on tv. Just for the sake of argument, take your keys and try them between your fingers hitting something besides a pillow. It doesnt work, at best you will hurt your fingers when keys twist and turn, cut and scrape, the soft fleshy parts between your digets. A roll of quarters, small mag-lite or something similar will do a much better job. When deciding on a SD plan, do plenty of research. there is good info out there. for example Hock Hockiem's CQC website or Mike Janich's Martial blade concepts or PersonalDefenseNetwork.com.

Both are good as a non firearm weapon since they are handy to use. Just be sure that they are legal to use in your area.

My suggestions, assuming training and skill in usege: Knife; Baton, spray, or kongo; crossbow or long bow.
Knife!! 100%
One of the most older weapons on earth , reliable, ready for multiple ways and purposes , lethal or less lethal - user choice.

Ok...here's an idea. Since the economy is effectively tanking and municipalities are also hurting with lay-offs and a drop in "protective services", what about contacting your local PD...PBA, FOP or other Law enforcement agency. This would be excellent for "good community relations". They could start, for a small fee, civilian training in basic non-lethal defensive training with standard PD issued equipment like a basic Nightstick. ALWAYS try to utilize what the cops are issued by their departments, even ammunition. This way there is no over-kill. As an example...many years ago I was a city cop in a very high crime urban area; my "beat" was in the thick of things. I learned to use what was issued. Fast-forward...I "transferred to a small, provincial NJ Shore-town. During my tenure, there was occasion to respond to a massive neighborhood dispute in the "Projects". The Captian and Lieutenant in charge of the shift responded to this "uprising" with helmets, face-shields and 6-cell mag lites. I told them that the department doesn't issue mag-lites ajnd the liability of use would be crippling. I further advised them that the dept issues nightsticks...which can be used to "turbanize" any recalcitrant thugs. They saw and recognized my wisdom. NEVER FORGET, ther is always some "up and coming' PROSECUTOR with political ambitions who will burn you at the stake. Keep it simple and keep the force to what a REASONABLE and PRUDENT individual would do under a specific set of circumstances. ALWAYS UNDERPLAY. I hope I may have helped.
