1. THE KEYSTIK  PDS IS LEGAL!

In most jurisdictions, that we are aware of, the Keystik is legal.  It has a utility function-to hold your keys, which makes it legal to carry.   In Canada, the Keystik is neither restricted nor prohibited.  It is therefore legal to carry providing it is not used for illegal purposes. When considering carrying a Keystik, you might want to make your own inquiries to confirm if they are legal in your jurisdiction. It is also important when you are traveling on an airplane to check your Keystik in your baggage. It is not allowed as a carry on or in your carry-on bags. 


 2. YOU WILL CARRY THE KEYSTIK AT  ALL TIMES
.
 

This is the beauty of the Personal-defense key chain.  Keys are the most common object that you carry in your hand when coming or going to your vehicle, home or workplace. Carrying your everyday keys on the Keystik Personal-defense key chain increases the odds, if you are attacked, it will be in your hand and ready to "go." This is a major benefit (comfort) when considering a personal safety device.  


3. BUILDING CONFIDENCE IN YOUR ABILITY TO USE IT.

    You get out what you put in. 

In a stressful encounter, such as an attack only simple, large-muscle actions can be performed effectively. For that reason, a practical self-defense system must be simple and have as few techniques as possible. There are a number of simple techniques associated with the Keystik. They include  basic strikes, arm grabs, releases from holds and more. The techniques that we teach consist of striking methods that are natural and consistent with what one would do during a potential combative situation.  The Keystik is a hard object, which concentrates  the striking energy that is transferred into the assailant and with minimal training the Keystik strike is more likely to incapacitate an assailant, than an empty-handed response.  Training and practice are "key" to becoming confident in your ability to use the Personal-Defense System.


4. COULD IT BE TAKEN AWAY AND USED ON ME?
 

The honest answer to this question is, "yes." ANY personal-defense item : a knife, pepper spray or even a shoe, can potentially be taken away and used on you in the same fashion you intend to use it on your assailant. However, the benefits of having one outweigh the possibility of losing it.  A major benefit of the Keystik personal-defense key chain is that the assailant may not recognize what it is and if he did gain access to it, wouldn't know how to use it. 


5. BE PREPARED TO USE IT-PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY.
 

Don't just buy a Keystik Personal Defense System, attach it to your keys, carry it around and expect that you will magically resort to it if you are ever approached by an assailant.  Training and practice are essential in becoming confident.  Developing competence does NOT require thousands of repetitions and hours of training. The Keystik basic strikes are simple and not hard to learn. Using the Keystik will intensify the destructiveness of your response to a violent attack and increase the potential of escaping serious injury or worse. Learn the basic concepts - mental preparation. Practicing the basic strikes - physically prepared.  And finally - develop the emotional resolve to do whatever it takes to protect yourself and survive! 

We wish you and yours awareness. . .  KDC
