See nine seemingly harmless everyday objects transform into devastating weapons before your very eyes! This training DVD looks at defensive techniques with a walking stick, a newspaper, a book, a handbag, a ballpoint pen, a key ring, a music-cassette, a coin, a soft-textured object and with no “weapon” at all. Defensive techniques against the following attacks are demonstrated: grabs, front bearhugs and front chokeholds.
