Physical self-defense is the use of physical force to counter an immediate threat of violence. Such force can be either armed or unarmed. In either case, the chances of success depend on a large number of parameters, related to the severity of the threat on one hand, but also on the mental and physical preparedness of the defender.




Personal alarms. A personal safety alarm starts sounding once the emergency button is pressed. Personal alarms are a way to practice passive self-defense. A personal alarm is a small, hand-held device that emits strong, loud, high pitched sounds to deter attackers because the noise will draw the attention of passersby. Child alarms often function as locators or device alarms such as triggering an alert when a swimming pool is in use to help prevent dangerous situations in addition to being a deterrent against would-be aggressors.

Pepper Spray. Pepper spray, also known as capsicum spray, is used in policing, riot control, crowd control, and personal self-defense, including defense against dogs and bears. Its inflammatory effects cause the eyes to close, taking away vision. This temporary blindness allows officers to more easily restrain subjects and permits persons using pepper spray for self-defense an opportunity to escape. Although considered a less-than-lethal agent, it has been deadly in rare cases, and concerns have been raised about a number of deaths where pepper sprayed may have been a contributing factor. For those with asthma, taking other drugs, or subject to restraining techniques that restrict the breathing passages, there is a risk of death.


Electroshock weapon. An electroshock weapon is an incapacitant weapon used for incapacitating a person by administering electric shock aimed at disrupting superficial muscle functions. Electroshock weapons such as stun guns, stun batons, and electroshock belts administer an electric shock by direct contact. Electroshock devices are not recommended as a meaningful defense, since the devices only work when in close vicinity to the attacker. A direct contact has to be established between device and attacker, which especially for women (but also others) is rather unsuitable. If the attacker is physically stronger, the device can easily be deflected by the attacker and used against the victim.
