As we continue our Goth’s guide to Self Defense, we move on from improvised weapons to specifically engineered weapons such as pepper sprays, T.A.S.E.R.s, and stun guns as well as more lethal weapons like sharp bladed objects (knives, swords, etc.).
This article deals with getting into the mindset of using common everyday objects as tools to defend yourself.
There are times when you are attacked and you donâ€™t have access to a gun nor are you able to run. You can use open-handed self-defense, but, if youâ€™re like most people, you would prefer using an actual object, because you want to be able to defend yourself as best you can. You donâ€™t have a designated weapon (knife, machete, bow/crossbow, gun) available, so you have to improvise. This article will cover normal, everyday, things that can be used for self-defense.
Despite being aware of your surroundings, you can still be attacked. This article discusses how to defend yourself if you donâ€™t have access to a weapon.
This world is dangerous with everything from terrorism and hate crimes to violent flash mobs, domestic abuse, rapes, muggings , break-ins and countless other forms of violence.

In this article, I want to explore the one thing that we all can use even if we are unarmed with a weapon or knowledge of open-handed self-defense: awareness.
