ASP Kubotan/OC spray combo for wife
Have enjoyed and gathered much real life info from you over the years. THANKS.
A few years ago, I bought my wife a small keychain OC spray to carry in her hand/purse in case she should need to defend herself. I have replaced the units as they go out of date and now need to do so again.
My question is this: My wife and I are seniors and she has disabilities (inner ear/equilibrium) that preclude taking any organized training. I took a self defense course given by a mixed martial artist who taught us many helpful techniques. Some of the most useful to me seemed to be the use of wrist/finger locks and many different pressure points. Adding a small Kubotan or stiff pen to the techniques more than evened the playing field between me and some of my younger and stronger sparring partners that didn't have Arthritis.
Somewhere I saw a small (5 1/2"?) hollow aluminum Kubotan with a heavy keyring strong enough to flail with and also contained an OC capsule allowing 5 or 6 1/2 second sprays. I thought this tool might be good for someone like my wife (assuming she could do a little training with it). She says it might be taken from her and then used to attack her, but I say she would be suprised how hard she could fight if the chips were down and not to sell herself short.
Do you know of this combination tool, and what is your opinion of the effectiveness.
Sorry to run on and Thanks,
