Self Defense Weapon
This option is great to have as the neck rig is adjustable so you can even wear it on the side under your arm for a shoulder holster. Watch the video as it tells all about this NEW Neck Rig!
About the Neck Rig
This is a fantastic way to carry and deploy your self defense weapon. Any defender with a digit capture hole can fit into this holster. The holster grabs the defender as you slide it into the holster by two “indented” posts that slide into the digit capture hole. It attaches very firmly so you can run, jump, and be super active yet never lose your defender. When needed a firm tug on the defender and it’s in your hand, ready to use at a moments notice.
We attach 550 cord to the holster with two semi slip knots that hold the rig in place yet you can adjust where the defender sits on your chest. The knots can be adjusted but when you pull on the defender the knots hold their position during deployment. You can even extend the cord to its full length and can use the rig as a “shoulder holster”; that is under one arm or the other.
Yes… not only is the holster waterproof but the cord and the defender can be completely in water and have no damage.
For many years I have been putting on sandpaper tape to my weapons but just now got around to doing it on the self defense weapons. It really enhances the grip of the weapon and under real use things do or can get wet. Wet means it can become difficult to hold onto so this add-on really helps.
What you get is two pieces of sandpaper tape that you can apply to the handle of your defender. You get two pieces about 1/2″ by 2″ so you can apply to both sides of one defender. If you have more defenders then you will want to consider doing this to all of them.

I have been meaning to do this for a long time; and that is add sandpaper tape to the handles of the self defense weapon. I have it on all my guns and some of my knives but not so on the defenders. So, I purchased a sheet and cut it up to try.
I had two of the same model, the parrot, one with the tape and the other without. I then took them to a group meeting nearby and had each person hold each one as I pulled it out of their grip. Well, to no surprise the sandpaper defender didn’t budge. These were all older individuals too, so they didn’t have tons of grip strength in the first place.
So I’m offering the tape pieces as an add-on to your purchase or if you already have defenders you might want to purchase what you need to outfit your with this grip enhancing add-on. It becomes important if you should ever have to use your self defense weapon for real… holding onto it when it’s wet is paramount to success.
It’s funny that it has taken me all these years to do this and what a difference it really makes. In my self defense classes and with the military I always cover the use of this tape to enhance the grip of all kinds of weapons… well the cobbler’s kids have no shoes as they say.
Well not any longer! They all have shoes!!! So, I’m offering this as an add-on to your purchase or you can get your own tape locally I would presume. I ordered mine and then cut it up to fit for sale. It is truly something you should consider as it really does improve the performance of the self defense weapon.
Also, I will mention that you might want to also check out our new neck lanyard and side lanyard systems for the weapons. They are selling nicely, and everyone seems to be very happy with the added functionality. When you consider your personal self defense you shouldn’t hold anything back!
It was about time that I got a solution to our neck lanyard problem for the self defense weapon. What was the problem? Well in the past we had a really nice elegant solution…that was a kydex holster that fit the digit capture hole in the defenders. Now only certain models had that feature .i.e., Defender 1, Defender 2, Owl, rabbit, Spec ops 2, RP defender, and the Ronsonator. The others were not usable on the neck lanyard.
The holster design was very nice and worked extremely well. However the person that did them had to stop. He sent us his mold but I couldn’t find anyone who could make them! A bit of talent I presume. So I looked for years to find someone what could step up and make them. In trying we lost the mold so we just didn’t get anywhere with them.
This year, I decided to start to look at what I could put together myself that would answer the mail. I came up with several designs, some good ones and others very bad. It’s called engineering and I am one… haha
So, with lots of trials and failures; I centered on a design that I think works. However I’m the first to say it isn’t very elegant! But it’s functional and now we can carry our defenders, once again, around our necks for quick deployment! Great for traveling in a car as it’s always handy and ready for service if you should need it. Also since I’m doing a lot of hiking these days I wanted one to travel with me into the desert where things are very unruly. There was even two people a few years back attacked by a pack of dogs out here and one died! So, I wanted a very aggressive tool to follow me on my hikes.
As you can see this is one of the earlier models of neck lanyards I worked on. You can tell by the large split ring that runs through the digit capture hole. It was an act of congress to get that split ring in place so I abandoned that approach but I did like the large split ring for other purposes. That is one of the things most
of us want which are things that have multiple purposes. I tend to hike in the late afternoon and hike heading West into the sun. Once the sun is down behind the mounts I take my sunglasses off and put them through the split ring! I like this multipurpose use so I included it into the final neck design.
One of the things I needed to do was to find a new quick disconnect as the standard one we have doesn’t integrate with a neck 550 cord approach. When I first looked at how to carry a defender back in 2004 I looked at the badge industry as they seemed to have lots of possible solutions. We still go with the standard lanyard today for many things.
One feature I wanted from the new neck lanyard approach was to be able to carry any of our self defense weapons. With the new design we can accept any of the self defense weapon via the small holes at the end of the handle. Couple this with the new side lanyard design you can use the new 550 cord quick disconnects to integrate a solution into the new neck lanyard design.
As you can see with the picture to the right, you can have your everyday carry using the new side lanyard and the 550 cord quick disconnect to be put on the new neck lanyard. This opens up the ability for us to carry ANY self defense weapon on our neck lanyard. But wait there’s more! Haha, yes there is more as I make the new neck lanyards so you can expand the lanyard to work like a shoulder holster. That is, you slide it all the way out then put your arm into the neck lanyard then move it under your arm. It makes a very handy shoulder lanyard so it give you even more options for concealed carry requirements.
Yes we have made a new set lanyards. I have made a new side lanyard…
And a new neck lanyard…
Let's go hiking!

Hiking with a defender: self defense weapon!
When to carry a more aggressive self defense weapon is a question we get a lot. Well, one thing to ask yourself is if you call for help, how long is it going to take to get to you? This is the basis of a more aggressive tool and to have it at the ready.
The idea is that when you are out where even if you call for help you won’t get it for well over 10 minutes then it’s time to really defend yourself. If you have to defend yourself at a time like this, you want to do as much damage to the attacker as possible; all in the shortest length of time too.
A more aggressive self defense weapon is a must for you; in these types of situations. I like to carry the defender 2 with me on a neck holder cord as seen in the picture to your left. This particular holder is a kydex design that captures the “hole” in the defender and holds it in place until you “tug” on the weapon to deploy. Well this particular design isn’t available anymore, but I have a “binder clip” version that I have tested out and found it more than works!
You can use the binder clip approach to make a lanyard that will fit on your pants, shorts, as well as; many other places. I will have a blog post just for this later. But the neck cord design has two knots that slip in one direction but not in the other. So, when you pull on the self defense weapon for deployment the neck cord “binds” so the knots don’t slip, and you can deploy without any issues. However, this design also allows you to slide the knots together to make the cord longer and thus you can wear it like a shoulder holster.
This is a great option to take your defender with you where ever you go. I will have instructions and or purchase info on the website shortly. Enjoy!
In 2004, I was contacted by a person who was the assistant to Jon Ronson, BBC channel 4 in the UK. He had many bizarre questions for me like: can you set someone on fire by touching them? Can you kill a goat by staring at it? Can you freeze someone by touching them? All bizarre if you think about it however they had a reason.
They had been looking into the First Earth Battalion [FEB] which in turn was really developed by Col. Jim Channon (died Sept 10, 2017). When Col Channon was in Vietnam and also out on patrols he discovered that some folks on point could feel danger and others could not. Therefore, he went on a quest to try to understand what that was, isolate those attributes if achievable and come up with a way of training individuals to possess those extremely important, life saving qualities.
This began a movement in the US Army and Col Channon wrote the FEB manual; which, went viral in the military. Throughout my time with the FEB and my distinct look at things the FEB soldier was to be something truly different than what we observe today. I invented the defender self-defense weapon much in the spirit of the FEB as a non-lethal method to one’s self defense. This landed me in the middle of the research for the crazy rulers of the world and ultimately in the “men who stare at goats” movie where George Clooney’s character is based largely off me (Peter Brusso).
The self-defense weapon wound up in the goat’s motion picture as you can see on the left … in the hands of George Clooney. This rendition of the defender came straight out of the Crazy Rulers of the world Part 1 interview with me. I demonstrated to Jon Ronson the power of the defender self-defense tool, then called a “predator” how powerful it was. I likewise moved him over into the Amtrak Marine Corp museum to show him a few ways of dealing with an opponent with little or no effort at all. This was a partial response to the “can you set somebody on fire by touching them” questions. In Ninjutsu we learn a whole lot of pressure points and one area of the body, when struck properly, can easily make you seem like you are on fire and, so I did this to him. Have a great time and watch the whole video below …

The Ronsonator has a bit of a history about it. I (Master Peter Brusso) designed this very aggressive self defense weapon main for the military. However, it was during the time of the “men who stare at goats” book (where I’m chapter 8 in the book) by Jon Ronson. Jon Ronson is a rather famous author in the UK who has many shows and one is on BBC Channel 4. We had a naming contest on one of his shows and thus the name was given to this aggressive self defense weapon after the author. He wasn’t that pleased with it but went with the concept. He is very non violent and thus to have a violent self defense weapon named after him… hum… Well that is how it got it’s name.
The Ronsonator has the “beak” like the parrot, saw tooth soft tissue capture capability, and two really sharp points for attacking tissue or muscle. You can come in behind a person and with the rear sharp point pull them back into you thus capturing them. It also has a “V” shape cut in the top of the weapon which is used to attack under the nose thus pushing off your opponent without turning your hand. It’s extremely aggressive just the type of self defense weapon when you need it the most!
The spec Ops 2 was designed to be a very aggressive self defense weapon that “punishes” your attacker with a forward pointing “point” for them to run into. If they punch or kick at you; you let their hand or foot run directly into the point.
The rear facing point is for soft tissue captures between your thumb and the point “ouch!!!”
The point at the bottom of the handle allows you to smash that into a head or even a hand that is grabbing you.
The hole in the tool is for capturing fingers or thumbs; if the opportunity presents itself. Or you can directly capture a finger and hold that finger in the hole on the tool, thus capturing that arm as well.
I used this tool once to take down a shoplifter who made me look small! This guy was 350 pounds and 6 foot 5 inches! I used the front edge to capture his finger between the edge and my grip on the weapon, then a simple arm bar using the pain from the finger… I face planted this guy and waited for the police to come. It’s long story but it worked fantastic. This tool was also used by the military during physical searches of people and it was always there for them to defend themselves in close quarters combat!
Wow… this is a great self defense weapon known as the Parrot! The Parrot is a very aggressive weapon that can stop your
attacker(s) very quickly. The addition of the new feature known as the “beak pieces” or simply a parrot beak. This is very new as it will quickly pick off the hands of the bad guys when they grab your arm, wrist, or the like. Just place the beak over a finger that is grabbing you and then twist… it will either break the finger or cause some much pain they will let you go!
