Nobody is completely attack-proof, but you sure as hell can try to be by learning some self defense tips. You may not be a concealed carrier or karate kid, but that doesn't mean you can't be knowledgeable about unconventional self-defense.

These self-defense tips can give you a solid foundation to build on. Although the traditional way of doing this is always great, we love that folks are getting creative on how to defend themselves nowadays.

Most Unconventional Self Defense Tips and Items

1. Self Defense Kitty

This may look harmless at first, but its pointy ears will leave a deep wound on the unsuspecting assailant.

They're now made with an ultra-tough plastic material that is very hard to break, which is exactly what you need if you ever have to use this device.

It's so portable, you can keep it in your pocket all the time. Better yet, you may want to give another pair to a family member or a special someone since it doesn't look threatening and is somehow fashionable.

While you're at it, try to give them a short self-defense class using this item.

2. Pen-Knife Combo

Whoever tries to break into your office will never see this one coming. What's more, you can even put it in your coat or whatever you're wearing, and the perpetrators will never suspect a thing.

Just be mindful of its nature when you're carrying it as you don't want to inflict self-harm. Also, check out the Tactical Pen perfect for defending yourself while keeping your weapon concealed.

3. Let Your Hair Down

And I don't mean relax. I mean it literally. Whether you're a lady or a guy, your ponytail or braid is an easy way for someone to grab you from behind.

    I was really disapointed to see you dont ship to canada that creditcard knife is awesome

    1. Courtney says:

      They cant ship to Canada because of our import laws. Any form of a weapon including stun guns and mace are prohibited.

      1. Mary says:

        Canadians, you had all better learn to make your own. 170 million people are dead because of gun control…. Hitler’s Germany, Cambodia, China, and dozens more; these governments implemented gun control, disarmed their citizens, and then rounded them up and put them in concentration camps and exterminated them. Canada. You’re next. Especially because of Justin Treudeau’s Islamic agenda. Godspeed, and put yourself and your kids in serious martial arts training. Time is running out for you and for us in the U.S.

        1. John says:

          Say Mary, why don’t you crawl back under your rock.

      2. Not Me says:

        Courtenay you’re wrong…..the cc knife IS a concealed weapon, you CAN carry a knife in your pocket or purse. You CAN carry dog spray (aka: pepper spray), and you can use it, too. The whole “we can’t have weapons in Canada” is a farce. Yes we can, and yes we do. Stop buying into the whole media/RCMP’s agenda of misinformation to confuse the Canuck, as a buddy of mine says…..

  2. Curt Sharp says:

    There are plenty more ways to defend yourself. Would like to see more. I find this interesting since I’m prior Marine corps

    1. John Carton says:

      Most of the physical techniques shown here are Hapkido. A Korean martial art. Look for a legitimate Hapkido instructor. I have studied it for 43 years.

  3. gingerale says:

    Just carry a gun, or two or three.

    1. Voodoo says:

      You need to know some hand to hand combat as well. Guns do have their limits, including but not limited to ammo, range, and speed at which they can be drawn. Imagine if some dude was already beating on you, you won’t be able to draw, aim and fire your weapon.

  4. JM B says:

    Definitely have to learn at least some hand to hand combat. People do not realize just how fast things can escalate when confronted by a perpetrator. I’m telling you, it can happen in seconds. A gun will not do you any good if you can’t reach it. Don’t think that it can’t happen to you because it can. You have to consider some kind of training for self defense.
    It is soo important. CY6

  5. Anonymous says:

    Don’t forget “sing”. Solar plexis, instep, nose, and groin.

    1. KurtBox says:

      Or “STING” – Solar Plexis, Throat, Instep, Nose and Groin.
