Crime is a harsh reality of the world that everyone has to deal with, in some way, throughout their life. While I personally have been lucky enough to not experience any direct crime in my life, I have many friends that have been victimized by violent crime in the past. While we as a society make efforts to reduce these events through police patrols, informative strategies for prevention, and self-defense measures, more and more of these crimes are taking place every day. Unfortunately, statistics show that violent crime is on the rise and people need to be able to protect themselves. In these high stress events victims need to juggle their flight or fight response, contacting police, and/or accessing a self-defense item.
People need to know how to defend themselves effectively in any situation and feel confident in these abilities.
