by Rodney R Rice
Thank you, submitter, for another look at women’s self-defense. This one does have some good advice, but it’s a little out of date. Who has a banana clip in their purse? A computer disk? A cactus? Is that a bra she’s choking the guy on the cover with? They don’t come off quite that quickly or easily…
