Self Defense Products For Women - Are There Too Many Choices?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Self defense products for women are one the easiest products to get your hands on, but that does not mean that every single one of them is quality. When searching for products online there are thousands upon thousands of items to choose from. But how do you know which ones are the best? This can sometimes take much time and research to find out. But many of you reading this article do not have the time to go on such an expansive search and that is where I can step in and help.

Women's self defense products have come a long way in the past few years. Whereas about 10 years ago the only products we were accustomed to hearing about were knives and mace, we can now look at an array of different non-lethal weapons. These products really make the difference between life and death. I would now like to give a brief overview of some of the most popular self defense products for women.

As I mentioned above, mace has been one of the long-standing leaders in self-defense weapons. An interesting thing though, is that most people believe that mace and pepper spray are one in the same. This could not be further from the truth. Mace is an irritant, similar to tear gas, while pepper spray has inflammatory characteristics and will immediately hinder an attacker. Pepper spray is actually just concentrated oil and resin from peppers. There can be much confusion when deciding which one of these to purchase and it is important to note that Mace is also a brand name associated with pepper spray products. I am hoping that I can use the articles and reviews on my website to help clear up some of these misconceptions.

Another self defense weapon that is on the rise is the stun gun. Stun guns come in all different shapes & sizes. There are high and low voltage stun guns, disguised stun guns, flashlight stun guns, stun guns with alarms, and the list go on and on. Having all of these different choices can lead to feelings of helplessness when it comes to making a decision on which one is the right pick for you. In the coming weeks and months I will be writing descriptions on these many different types and giving reviews on the competing brands.

Above all others, one of the best ways to learn how to protect yourself is to get some training in self defense. Whether it is martial arts, hand-to-hand combat, or weapons training, you can find many of these courses online. You can find classes in your area, find online training courses, or order training videos so that you can train at your own pace. Getting prepared is key to your sefety!

This is only a brief overview of a very broad subject, but I hope it was helpful and informative! I will continue to broaden your scope of knowledge dealing with women's self defense and the products associated with it with in-depth articles and unbiased reviews.
