Non-Lethal & Concealable Self-Defense Tools for Women

Presenter - Emily Valentine

Firearms are a popular weapon to carry as a means of self-defense. However, not every situation requires a firearm, some women might not be comfortable carrying a firearm, or depending on your plan for the day you may not be legally allowed to carry a firearm. In any case, what other tools do you have that you can rely upon if a firearm is not an option? This seminar will explore a range of non-lethal self-defense tools that are viable options for women should you need to defend yourself. Additionally, this seminar will also explore ways to carry/conceal these non-lethal self-defense tools as part of a woman's wardrobe.
