Ok, i carry a little knife with me sometimes for protection if someone jumps me with a knife. How many other martial artist carry weaponds with them? My old instructer would carry a little stick on the end of his key chain. i just figure it's safer to carry weaponds incase you have to fight someone with a weapon. And it seems to me that most attackers out there will be armed, i've never seen or been in a fight where weaponds weren't involved, sticks, knives, bats. So does anyone have any ideas of a little concealed weapond beside a knife?
