5 Common Objects for Self Defense

Since our Krav Maga self defense classes focus on everyday situations we always consider the various environments we find ourselves in.  Part of this involves identifying common objects you can use to defend yourself. 

Whether you are in Toronto or anywhere else in the world these
5 common objects can be used to thwart an assault. 
  • Coins: Throw them to distract.  You won't necessarily hurt the assailant but you might buy some time to escape. 
  • Coffee and other drinks:  Hot liquid will certainly hurt.  Cool or lukewarm will distract. 
  • Cup, water bottle, or thermos: A metal thermos can be especially effective.
  • Chairs/Small Tables:  These can be used to shield yourself, creating space between you and the attacker.
  • Briefcase, backpack: Also shields. 

Please feel free to contact us with questions or comments.

Stay safe,
