Self Defense is the art of using defensive force against an offensive force that is perceived to be a threat to property or physical well being. In order to justify using force against an aggressor you must have legal provocation that the threat can only be dealt with by using lethal force. Things that need to be considered before planning a method of self defense is your weapons of choice. Your weapon can be something that can cause harm such as a firearm, stick, knife, and even yourself. Depending on where you live unfortunately you may be limited to the types of weapons that you may be able to possess or carry on your persons. After you have checked the laws in the country, state, or city that you live in you can then decide on weapons of your choice. Every self defense situation will be different and will require different skill sets. Besides using weapons for personal defense it is most important to have wide range of self defense tactics training.
