Self Defense Weapon Suggestions
Ok well i'm going to school next year and now that i'm 18 and i can purchase whatever the hell i want off the internet i've been looking into buying a non-leathal self-defense weapon. I am a black belt but concealed weapons or that sort of thing are kinda a piece of mind thing. I'm going to Boston, and after watching this.
(on second thought, i won't post the vid, idk if im allowed to or not, little graphic, just search "Street Thugs vs Badass with Bat: Battle in Boston")
I'm not worried, but id like to invest in something.
So what do you guys suggest?
Im going to list what i've considered, add anything to my list, or comment plz.
Disguised Yawara stick
Holster Gravity Knife (The kind that withdraws the blade using a holster catch)
I'm pretty sure 80% of those are illegal to carry. Plus its not gonna be pretty when you get into a fight and after when the officer searches you he finds an arsenal of concealed weapons.
But in all seriousness. I would and actually plan to pick up a kubotan. Since it looks nothing like a weapon and looks more like a guady accessory for your keys.
Amazon.com: KUBATON - KEY RING: Sports & Outdoors
Its cheap, and easy to use (just use via a hammerfist.)
As for the rest of your gear, I'll let the more experienced have the final verdict.
LOL i dont want an arsenal, just 1 thing

Carrying a sturdy marker or pen as an impact weapon is fine, but you should just pick up a suitable one from your campus bookstore rather than buying one that's marketed as a weapon. A particularly zealous cop or prosecutor could wave Cold Steel's catalog in front of a jury and say "Clearly Bob purchased and carried this item with the intent to use it for violence." So, for plausible deniability, go with a regular writing implement or, even better, a small flashlight.

What MMAMickey said.
As to situations like the video
Don't be a dumbass. Don't get out of your car. Don't stop. Don't be a dumbass.

And i no you have to look out for law enforcement but when its a life or death situation, wouldn't you advise having a pocket knife or pair of brass knuckles.
And i just thought of this and its kinda dumb, but what if i weighted a normal sharpie?
Life or death situation? What the **** kind of school are you going to?!?
My pocket knife is for odd jobs around the house, I wouldn't use it for self defense as a stab wound or cut to the wrong area is lethal.

That's for home defense though, for highschool I'd recomend a high powered crossbow. Now that your 18 you can buy all sorts of deadly so why not.
You wont need to add weight to a sharpie, a good hammerfist is all the weight you need.
Saw the video mentioned by OP: feet >> bat
Driving away would have been even better. OP you already have black belt in kempo, round out your skills with some grappling and take advantage of college to stay in great shape (cardio and strength training). Ignore gimmicks and legal issues. Concealed carry is a different issue that I can't advise on an don't even know if it legal at 18. When I was in college, I kept a flashlight handy for walking around at night. (Flashlights are useful at night even if goblins don't attack you.) and walked with friends. Friends are also great to have, you can study with them and hang out with them. Good times!
