Learning to use a self defense weapon requires skill and practice. It is also best taught by a qualified instructor in a setting designed for self defense training. Training can also be found on self defense websites or in self defense books and videos. However, learning from these sources may not provide you with all of the proper skills you need. A disadvantage to not having an instructor present during your training is that there is no one to determine whether or not you are using the proper form or to see if the moves you make are appropriate to stop an attacker. Check first to see if training if available through your local community center or community college.
