Common object defence

Last week we talked about using the hammer strike.  Now let's make it more effective, and think about common object defence.  Pick up a pen and think about how much more effective that hammer strike will be.  Remember, you can't carry a weapon in the UK and if you intend to carry anything that you intend to use as a weapon, it will make it a criminal offence. However, there are pens lying about everywhere and you can carry one wherever you go. Think about the pen being a force equalizer and it can make someone smaller safer against a larger meaner opponent.  Get a cardboard box and practice your striking on that.  Realise the damage that can be done, and then keep that in mind and the force ladder in a self defence situation.
