At Defense-ability our focus is different from that of other self-defense programs; we teach “layers of defense”: awareness and avoidance skills first, then simple yet effective “take down” self-defense techniques.
But sometimes, you need to fall back on an external personal protective product. In those situations, we encourage the use of a stun gun or pepper gel to disable the attacker and allow immediate escape.
There are a lot of personal protective products out there, some of them very effective, most of them junk. We have picked just a few products that we feel work best and ensure maximum user safety.
We only carry one stun gun – 19 million volts of butt-kicking, (but non-lethal) force. Our stun gun features a couple of very important safety elements: a strong flashlight that can temporarily blind an attacker, and a disable pin that ensures that if the attacker manages to grab your gun, they can’t use it against you.
In addition, we are one of the few self-defense training programs to offer pepper gel. This is a fairly new technology being used almost exclusively by law enforcement. We want you to have access to this product for a couple of reasons: there is virtually no blowback (whether used indoors or outdoors), and you have more accuracy over a greater distance (up to 18 feet with the holster model), keeping your attacker farther away and giving you more chance to escape.
If you have any questions about any of the products we sell, please contact us.
