Self-Defense and Home Protection: A Few Basic Truths

Are self-defense classes necessary for being able to protect yourself in your home? That is a really tricky question to answer. So, it is best to answer it in the most politically correct manner possible. Basically, it does not hurt to learn as much as you can about self-defense, but what you learn in a self-defense class is not going to cover issues surrounding home security. Home security details protecting your property and (hopefully) not about having to confront violence.  To prevent the problems burglars and robbers form attacking a home often entails making the home a far less promising option to invade.

This can be done through ensuring the right locks are on doors, the right lights are affixed to the exterior of a home and also installing alarms that will keep burglars at bay. Self-defense classes do not cover such material. Now, it is a very good idea to learn basic self-defense. However, it is equally critical to take the steps to ensure you do not make errors in terms of leaving your home at risk to being robbed.

A little knowledge can go a long way. For those wishing to be sure their home is safe, it would not hurt to read up on the subject of basic home security. The HSS Geek is  definitely worth reading if you do want to improve your knowledge on the subject.
