National Personal Self-Defense Month

You don’t have to be Chuck Norris (hell, Zeus and Thor and Ra wrapped together don’t have to be Chuck Norris), but knowing some basic self-defense is always a good idea. You never know when you’re going to get yourself into a pickle, whether it’s a dispute over your kid’s coat at daycare or the naked guy trapped in your trunk bursts forth screaming and waving a crowbar.

Do you know what the most important part of your body is when it comes to self defense? I’ll give you a clue—it’s not your six pack abs, bulging biceps, or the taser hidden in your purse.

It’s your brain.
