Self Defense on The Real Talk Show

I had the please of appearing as a guest on The Real daytime talk show hosted by Loni Love, Tamar Braxton, Aidrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry-Housley. Oh boy, did we have a good time!

Next, I taught the ladies how to bite down on an attackers hand after he tries to shut you up  with his hand.

We also covered how to use your cellphone as a weapon if you had to by using the corner of it to hit attacker in the temple or eye socket.

Last, we went through Loni’s purse to see what she had in there that might be a helpful weapon. Unfortunately, she did not have pepper spray (which I highly recommend), but she did have a sandwich and some hairspray! So we used the hairspray to spray in the attacker’s eyes to temporarily blind him while we followed up with some strikes or fled!

Get the blow-by-blow here.
