Those purse size sprayers are a prohibited weapon, ie if you get caught with it you are in serious trouble and face weapons charges. Note the word prohibited, you can't possess them for any reason or even get a permit. Several years ago the law was changed and now the all bear spray must be in a container of at least 224 grams and be labled for use on animals only.~Alexandria~ said:There's purse size too...~ for bad doggys
Yep correct, common sense will save you where force never will, but if ya gotta fight then ya gotta fight to win .. losing is a bad option and the trick is to fight to get away, like the old saying goes "he (or she) who fights and runs away lives to fight another day"...Ophelia Black said:Avoiding a situation; or simply leaving will always be the best choices - however this is for times when those options are not possible.
I was particularily impressed that they address ground fighting - almost all fights go there, and that's where it will end for the loser.
You can know all the kicks, blocks, and upright-oriented punches in the world, and they'll be useless once you're on the ground with a larger person on top. So I want to know what will allow me to disable someone from that position so I can escape. That's where a lot of the so-called dirty techniques come into play.
Given the probable height and weight differences, the fight is already dirty by definition, and you have to be able react with enough force to save your life.
If that force proves lethal to the other party, so be it. In a choice between me and them, it will ALWAYS be them. I think this mindset is as important if not more so than actual technique.
You had better get new glasses with GLASS in them. NOT the horn rims you had last week.vancouverman said:note to myself ..... on next PA meeting ... wear a glasses when sitting next to ~A~ as well. ( in case I press to close, and bear scare would "accidentally" go off )
