Still do not quite understand what it is, but none the less is doesn't matter.its what lugnut is refering too haha. yeah i carried a fixed blade but campus security told me that it was illegal to bring on campus with me so i went in search for something legal. i actually like it alot. ive had about 40 hrs training time with and have no complaints yet.
Please don't be this guy http://www.anjingbanfa.com/DefenderClipFlash.htmlHey, im new to the forum and just wanted to intro myself. My names beau im 18 and since i cant carry a handgun, i personally carry a defender 1. I love it, easyily concealable and very easy to handle. any opinons on the weapon.
That was a funny clip! :

I love weapons, gizmos and tools as much as the next guy. However, to me this seems impractical. What if you can't reach it in time, this doesnt look like an item that would come out easy? What if you get disarmed!? People become dependant in their minds with the "tool" and when that tool is gone, they freeze and panic. Don't become dependant on the "tool". It looks very gimmicky to me and this video made me laugh.
If you want something get a good old steel kubaton and put it your keys on it. I love and carry retractable steel batons. but it is a last resort not my first.
stick to what works. the boxing and muay thai classes that you are taking are a great start! most people that attack you will be more worried about a guy who takes a good fighting stance than a guy reaching for a yellow piece of plastic.
i dont take self defense specific classes but take boxing and muaythai classes at my local mma gym.
the defender isnt for face to face conflict, i carry it in case some one grabs me from behind or suprises me.
Want to see if this works.
Im 18 and i leave campus(in a bad part of town) at night very frequently.
Stop with the gimmicks and learn how to strike fast and effectively. Boxing and mauy thai the best for direct stand up.okay heres my situation, no concealed weapon for at least 2 1/2 yrs so thats out. what would you recommend for a younger guy who wears jeans and t-shirts to carry that everyone isnt going to see, that will help him if he is attacked by more than one guy. becasue campus is a dangerous place at night. I like the defender but want the option to do more damage with a legal weapon if nessacary. an btw a pocket nife takes longer to get out than the defender, i carry it in my back pocket, under a second to deploy.
