GUYS THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT
As a black belt in martial arts (basically self defense), I approve of this message.
The bit on the ‘spotting hidden guns’ seems a bit… iffy to me.
all of this will get you killed
#1: Pens and keys will break before the puncture skin in any meaningful fashion. The heel of the palm trick doesn’t work, it’s better t learn how to actually throw a punch.
2. Pressure points don’t work in a situation where the guy you’re fighting doesn’t stand still. End of story.
3. First off, if you’re in zip ties, there’s a good chance if you try to get out of them, someone’s gonna beat your shit in until you stop. Secondly, from someone who’s done this before, it’s basically impossible when in a control environment, let alone in an actual crisis.
4. If you have the money to get a painter’s mask and goggles, you have the money to have a real gas mask around.
5. No one knows this. No matter how great it is, if your rescuer doesn’t understand it, you’re fucked. Stick to morse.
6. Ask anyone who CC’s, this is blatantly untrue.
7. If you have the money for a self-defense table, just buy a gun or knife.
8. Actually, yeah, that’s how boxing wraps work.
