There's no doubt some people in the Upstate are comfortable and more than willing to use a gun to defend themselves. But what if you're not comfortable using a gun? Jim Martin uses techniques that help fend off a robber or a criminal, without a gun.

One of his methods includes using self-made weapons like a cut up credit card or a fake money roll to distract a thief from hurting you. Try packing up a few business cards and wrapping a dollar bill around them. Use a rubber band to secure the stack and carry it with you constantly. Martin insists most robbers are looking for quick cash and they're less interested in dealing with you. 

Throwing the fake stack of bills gets the thief chasing after that, instead of you. Martin also suggests spraying an attacker with gas at the gas pump. It's a place where many people are vulnerable, have money in hand, and wouldn't expect to be approached. 

Martin teaches everyone from school teachers to churches and even law enforcement and their families, to defend themselves. Classes usually last about two hours and can be held at your business or meeting. 

You can reach Jim Martin at 864-489 4975.
