    The Gentleman's Guide to Self-Defense: Part 1&2

    Guns and knives are, in many ways, the best self-defense tools.
    However - as police academies across the United States teach - a bad guy with a knife can charge and kill a good guy armed with a handgun if they're 21 feet apart or less.
    In other words, before you have time to draw aim and fire your gun, you may get fatally stabbed.
    In addition, if you live in New York, California or another state which makes it hard to carry concealed guns and knives - or you work in the financial services, legal or other professional setting where weapons are frowned upon - you might not be able to carry a gun or knife with you during your normal work day. (And many people don't understand the Second Amendment).
    In my state, for example, it's illegal to carry switchblades or even assisted-opening knives. And none of the manual "one-handed opening knives" I've tried work as advertised.
    Any weapon which you don't already have in your hands may be limited in its real-world usefulness. And you obviously can't walk around brandishing your gun and knife for no good reason.
    What to do?
    Find an every day object which is legal anywhere in the world, in any city or state, in any work environment ... and which you can hold in your hands at all times. The best self-defense weapon is one (1) you can carry with you anywhere and (2) which is an innocuous, every day item.
    Self-defense expert Thomas Kurz - a judo instructor, trained in boxing and Kyokushin karate, who knows how to kill a man with an everyday pencil or pen - has designed a weapon you can carry anywhere, and which will keep you dry when it rains: the Unbreakable Umbrella.
    Several top martial artists - such as stick-fighting expert Marc "Crafty Dog" Denny - have endorsed the Unbreakable Umbrella.
    Because a picture is worth a thousand words, you've got to see the videos below to get why this is such a good self-defense weapon ...
    But first let me briefly describe my experience with the Unbreakable Umbrella.
    Normal umbrellas break in a strong wind or after accidentally hitting something. I've gone through scores of umbrellas over the years, and it's frustrating.
    But I hit my heavy punching bag as hard as I could with the (1) tip, (2) handle and (3) side of the Unbreakable Umbrella, and it did absolutely no damage to the umbrella.

    Top self-defense teachers admit that it is very difficult to defend against a knife attack …
    A knife can cut you from many different angles.
    And – unlike the artificial dance step choreography most defense instructors peddle – knife attacks are unpredictable and chaotic

    You may think this is an unlikely threat … But three times more people were killed in the U.S. in 2015 with knives than shotguns and rifles combined. And knife violence is on the rise in the UK.
    So what’s a gentleman to do?
    Slash-resistant clothing can help …

    Body Armor USA provided us with a Cut-Tex Pro PPSS slash-resistant hoodie to test out. It’s comfortable, flexible and can be comfortably worn on top of or under other clothing.
    Body Armor’s Ben Rakhman tells Washington’s Blog that the PPSS cut-resistant clothing he sells provides protection against cuts, slashes, bites, tears and abrasion.
    Rakhman tells us that most attacks are cuts and slashes, more than stabs (Rakhman also provides personal protection services, and is quite knowledgeable about real-world self-defense).
    Best of all, the hoodie provides slash-resistance for the major arteries in your body – the cartoid, brachial and abdmonial arteries – as well as the upper portion of the femoral arteries, and the jugular vein. So wearing it will help keep you survive a knife attack.
    It’s outstanding for working with saws and other machinery and materials such as shop glass and sheet metal which could cut you, or for working with dogs and other animals which might bite. And this clothing helps protects kids with mental health issues which may try to cut themselves.
    Cut-Tex Pro also prevents road rash if you lay down your motorcycle on the road. It’s cool, and so can be worn even on hot days.
    There’s no metal in it, so you can walk through metal detectors without any problem. In addition, Rakhman told us that use and washing of this clothing will actually strengthen it … up to 4%. (Kevlar, on the other hand, is degraded by sweat, moisture, ultra violet light and time. And Rakhman says that that Cut-Tex is 30% stronger than Kevlar.)
    Notes: Rakhman stressed that nothing is slash-proof. This clothing is technically slash-resistant. Also, it does not offer protection against stabbing.
