It is hard to take off a belt in the middle of a fight. Therefore, this self-defense tool must be taken off in advance of any trouble (i.e. upon seeing a group of potential attackers approaching or dealing with potential attackers who have begun with verbal harassment and who might escalate the situation).
Belts can be utilized in the following manners:
Swing the belt and strike the attacker with the belt buckle.
Use the belt like a whip in order to create stand-off distance.
Wrap belt around a fist in order to shield & pad the punching or blocking hand.
Use belt like a rope in order to restrain or entangle attacker.
Use belt to choke attacker.
Belts can be used like traditional martial arts weapons such as the Kusari Fundo.
