Self-Defense Tip #54 — The Unbreakable® Umbrella in self-defense, Part I

Originally I planned to post now the second part of the self-defense tip on physical conditioning for mental toughness in self-defense (for the first part see self-defense tip #53). Yesterday, however, I received a testimonial for the Unbreakable® Walking-Stick Umbrella from a self-defense instructor, including a video from his self-defense school, and decided to post both of these here. Here is the testimonial, in the instructor’s ad for his school in Germany:

Hendrik Rober - Unbreakable Walking-Stick Umbrella

“The ideal defense weapon! My first choice when it comes to my personal safety.”—Hendrik-Röber, Authorized instructor of Irish Stick Fighting Doyle Style, Albstadt, Germany,

The video shows stick-fighting moves that can be done with the Unbreakable® Umbrella.

Now, back to physical conditioning for mental toughness in self-defense. Here is a video showing a few conditioning drills for fighting and self-defense:

Pay attention to these conditioning drills because I will refer to them when continuing the subject of conditioning for mental toughness in self-defense that I began in the previous self-defense tip.

Self-defense tip from Thomas Kurz, co-author of Basic Instincts of Self-Defense and author of Science of Sports Training, Stretching Scientifically, and Flexibility Express.

The Unbreakable Umbrella -- better than a cane, keeps the rain off, whacks like a steel pipe.
