hey there! im new here but i cant resist replying about the "improvised weapons category, but i sed to be a bouncer here in detroit, and i once saw a guy get knocked out with an empty two-liter of mountain dew! also candles, and pocket change make good weapons, at the very least they will make a guy duck so you can rush em!

wooden baby gate, dog headed glass bottles, candles (again) also the pewter is in the kitchen so there are plenty of knives and forks, a small rug, and a mug full of incense!

A belt with a nice big metal belt buckle makes a great improvised weapon. Thats why I always wear one when I go places with a lot of people that I don't know.

I recently read an account by a 19th Century clown who got hit in the face with a dummy baby during a show. It broke his jaw and laid him up for several days. Mind you, it was filled with sawdust and weighed around 2 stone.

Also read of a guy who, as a down and out, was attacked by a couple of thugs. He had stomach problems and emptied his bowels... they ran like hell.
See how well I block your punches with my jaw!!

Hmm, first post time =D

Here is a list of weapons that catch my fancy:

Closed can of pop for bludgeoning
Empty can of pop (twisted apart to make a blade... or two blades if twisted apart right)
Garbage can lid for use as a buckler
Small stick (as a yawara or just for thrusting in to someone's face/neck)
Sturdy stick/improvised Jo or Bo
Quarters held between the fingers to weight punches
Table (flip it on to someone's foot, or throw it into their shins)
Ceiling Fan if reachable BE CREATIVE
The stem of a martini glass
Car door - swing and boom.
Stick gum on someone's face as a distraction
Break a cd and use for slashing
A banana. They are heavy enough to do damage, very distracting, and make a good story.
An umbrella.
A cane.
Your assailant's own shoe.
Smash someone face first into a window

Now, here is what I personally have done-

I carry two knives (openly and legally, of course), which I would never use in a combat situation unless also threatened with a knife, or with a gun. I can use, however, a closed knife in my fist to weight a punch and stop my hand from breaking if I punch hard enough. In grappling, I can push on the top of the close knife with my thumb to push it down out of the bottom of my fist a bit, which gives me either a bludgeon or yawara, depending on me mood. This same concept works (as I have done more often) with a lighter.
The quarters thing also works, trust me.

Now, about the cats- my brother threw a cat at me when I was younger. Smokey the Cat held on to my face for dear life, and to this day I've a rather cool scar because of it.

lmao @ cats/ goats good ideas!!

i like pens or pencils cause they are redily available, havent used used them, but to use it defenceivly as they punch and you stab their arm would be a good way (also keeps you out of trouble if the law comes back at you lol. i used to go to a real rough school in the getto, i hung out with and was(am) one of the punk rock kids and hard leather bracelets with studs / spikes have gotten me out of a coupple fights put the spikes on my knuckles and its almos like brass knuckles studs for blocking.

one time 3 red necks were messing with me and my girl i showed them the spikes on my knuckels and they just backed off. which of course is the best way of winning a fight

a jacket is good too, a choke, cover an attackers face while you punch them ect.
pocket change
wallet chains ^_^
the belt (stud belts are awesome)
tire iron
3/8s in ratcht drive
the whole damn tool box lmao
detachable steering wheel
deck of cards to fluster opponent while you punch in face/throat (good with MagicTG cards too for you nerds lmao)
hydrolic jack bar.
a sturdy drink straw for a throat shot
tooth pick: throat eyes tendons

Forgot about this thread...

Since my Sayoc Kali seminar a few weeks ago, I'm thinking more about "vital templates" (& thanks to my background in anatomy/physiology) if I happened to need to use my pen as a thrusting weapon.

In the old days, I used to carry "nylon" weapons on my travels but since "9-11", I always carry a strong pen. I think I'll be adding Habanero sauce to my carry-on as well.
