You can use items such as pepper spray, taser guns or electric batons that are among the items allowed by law. While in the military, are adopted techniques that have increased offensive power and lethal, allowing the use of firearms.

The sectors of society who are more likely to be victims are women, children and the elderly, that’s because the assailants attack people who are considered weaker or defenseless. This was explained by Sam Allred, a renowned specialist in self-defense:

Individuals with a strong physical constitution or who train any martial art are rarely tackled.” –Art of Dominating and Conquering the Agressor, Books for everyone, 2001.

The knowledge and skills of self defense provide a sense of control and calm that is necessary to feel secure. The type of technique used shall be the one that best suits the situation, our physical constitution and our individual abilities.

The fact of living in a dehumanized society and plagued by violence forced to develop strategies that would effectively face it to emerge unscathed, which is why were created defense techniques made especially for use in urban life. The purpose of these is to avoid being an easy target or make easier the work of the assailant.
