Protecting yourself at home is a major priority for many people. The idea of someone crashing into your residence late at night is downright frightening. Likewise, you want to stay safe when you leave your home and head to work or elsewhere. The fundamentals of self-defense remain the same no matter the location. Being in your home allows for a certain amount of planning, but many of the same tools that will help you in one location will also serve you well in another. With the new year, a variety of new pieces of self defense gear are coming onto the market that may fill a gap in your preparedness planning. ­­
