Let’s get to the main tips…

Keep in mind that you can only use a belt as an improvised weapon if you have time to take it off! That means you need to pay attention to your surroundings and hopefully see trouble before it starts.

If you can’t run away, then hold the knife attacker back by holding the end of the belt and swinging it like a nunchaku. You can also fold the belt in half and use it to strike.

Either way, it’s a good idea to wrap the end of the belt around your wrist to make sure it doesn’t slip out of your hand and to keep it from being pulled away from you.

As for fighting techniques, keep it simple! Whacking the attacker’s hand or face might be all you need to do to stop the attack or buy enough time to get away.

Don’t forget the belt is just an extra weapon, not your only weapon. You can still add shouting, kicks, and palm strikes to your strategy. Do what you have to do!

Like any self-defense technique, a little practice goes a long way, so grab a belt and see what you can do with it!
