A local self defense specialist is educating the public on how to protect itself from common dangers with or without protection.

Daniel Wood is the owner of Guardian Self Defense and Security Products. Wood says he has plenty of experience in defensive tactics including military, fire and emergency response and sells a variety of products in his store to aid people in protecting themselves.

"My top selling items would be defense key chains, pepper spray all natural, and stun guns with lifetime warranty.. I also carry gun products for guys who like to use gun for home defense, " said Wood.

Wood says before using these items people should always give a warning to the perpetrator. He also says people can decrease their chances of becoming a target by paying attention to what’s going on around them.

"These days everybody should be a little vigil, everybody should be aware of their surrounding like here’s a little tip if you leave the mall at night after shopping approach your vehicle very slowly, stand back at a distance and actually look under your vehicle I know of perpetrators hiding underneath, " said Wood.

In the near future he plans to move into a larger space and facilitate self defense classes for the public.

Feel free to contact Wood for more information or visit him at Colony Square Mall.
