Harry Potter Mania?

Did you get your copy of Harry Potter Book 7 yet?
Personally, I could wait for the movie to come out, but my
wife and daughter had to have the book ASAP. It was made
available Friday at Midnight, or first thing in the morning
Saturday, depending on how hard core you were and what store
you wanted to wait [...]

Fake Out the Burglars and Beat Them at Their Own Game

Mike was at his sister Beth’s house helping her to put her
affairs back into order after her husband’s death. He was
photographing her valuables for insurance purposes, as Beth
had taken out a new policy. She wanted to keep her own
records and make sure everything was accounted for.
Mike finished up with the pictures and ready to [...]

Fight Like A Girl - Women’s Self Defense

I found a couple motivational pieces for women.
One is an anonymous poem and the other is a
quote from a butt-kicking woman who knows
what is up.
“I Fight Like A Girl”
“I fight like a girl who refuses to be a victim.
I fight like a girl who is tired of being
IGNORED and HUMORED and BEATEN and RAPED.
I fight [...]

What Does Mowing the Lawn Have to do With Home Safety?

I just got back from vacation at the beach. It was way too nice, and way too short, but I am back nonetheless. Even though the water is freezing up in Maine, the beach is the beach and a good time was had by all.
I almost had to tattle on myself for breaking [...]

Upcoming Promotion

I just found out this week that I will be going up for my
next karate belt during next month’s scheduled promotions.
Unfortunately I have my work cut out for me over the next
several weeks. It’s not that I am nervous of the actual
test, I have been taking martial arts on and off since I was
14, but [...]

View on Women’s Self Defense Classes

I found a couple real good posts on a Self Defense Forum
that were far Worth sharing.
First one comes from a poster named Kharnivore:
“I worry more about the false-sense of security that any
short seminar can give to a casual attendee. I think that no
matter what the material, how good the trainer, without a
refresher course regularly people [...]

Why Non-Lethal Self Defense Tools?

There are a lot of different types of people out there in
the world. Some people can mindlessly kill people. Some
people injure others without remorse. Some people are able
to injure others or defend themselves if provoked. Some
people are so timid they would not be able to hurt a fly.
Then there are the people in between. Where [...]

Anything Can Be Used as a Weapon

Anything can be used as a weapon in a pinch. This goes back
to always being aware of your surroundings, paying attention
to both people and objects in the immediate vicinity. We
are not talking about being paranoid, but like I’ve said
before, a little healthy and controlled paranoia keeps you
out of the hospital or worse.
A good [...]

Who Invited the Fox to the Cookout?

Today’s story comes from Kingstown, NC this past Sunday
afternoon. About seven kids were outside in the front yard
playing during a family cookout. All of the sudden, an
unwanted guest shows up, without a dish to add to the
potluck. An aggressive fox.
Remaining calm, the hero of the day grabbed the fox by the
neck and pinned it [...]

Only in Sweden… Badminton Self Defense?

I really wish I had more details on this one…
“A man at a campground in Sweden successfully used a
badminton racket to fend off an attacker with a knife.”
Ok, that sounds rather foo foo to me. I would have expected
a story like this maybe out of France.
Police reported the attacker wielded a fishing fillet knife
and apparently [...]

Does a Bear Smell Pepper Spray in the Woods?

If you read my blog back at the beginning of May, you
already received my Bear joke, and bear safety tips. If
not, you can scroll back to:
https://worthprotectionsecurity.com/blog/?p=9
I love that joke. Of course, I have never been chased by a
bear. I’m sure that experience would sour the joke for me.
I also would never knowingly be caught [...]
