You’re taking night classes at the local Community College, class just let out and you stay behind for a minuet to ask the professor a question. As the two of you walk out of the class room you catch a glimpse of another student, who had been kicked out for constantly causing trouble, rush the professor from behind and knock him out cold.
You see the crazy look in his eye and you know that he hasn’t satisfied
his vendetta yet. You want to defend yourself and the professor, but the
college has a very strict no weapons policy so you’re unarmed. You have
to improvise a weapon so you…
Use Your Back Pack.
Swinging your back pack at an attacker might not be the most efficient
weapon, but it should put him back on his heels. If you read through all
the posts associated with my Best Self Defense
Techniques then you should that getting your opponent to have to fight
defensively is the first part to winning a fight. Sure you probably
won’t beat him into submission with a back pack but you can keep him at
bay until you have an opening to attack him.
Use a Pen/Pencil
Using a pen or pencil as a shank to stab someone isn’t that far off of a
notion. You just want to be careful, legally speaking that is. Most
places would probably consider it to be “lethal force” because there is a
slight chance of you doing permanent damage or possibly killing your
opponent if you stab him in the right spot. So it’s best to only do this
if you feel your life is in danger.
Beat Him With A Book.
I covered this in “Improvised Weapons For Self Defense In Your Home”
but it also works here. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a hard cover
or a soft cover book, if you hit someone with the spine of the book it’s
going to hurt. Especially if you aim for sensitive or fragile areas
like the nose, temple, back of the head, groin, back of the hand, etc..
Well, those were a couple of things that you should readily have access
too in school to use as improvised weapons for self defense.
Be Prepared. Be Safe.
