Self defense expert and author of "Surviving the Unthinkable," Tim Larkin demonstrates, with the help of the Wall Street Journal, three self defense moves everyone should know.

Simple, effective, easy, and readily available, don't underestimate the power of a good flashlight when considering what to include in your mobile arsenal.
Tip: It's good to have a few things in your hands when walking to and getting out of your car. Keys, cell phones, flashlights, and other items can be thrown at an attacker to give you a few moments to get distance, but you don't want to be overloaded. Too many things in your hand can render both you and your projectiles impotent.
In daylight we recommend: keeping your phone and keys in your hand with a flashlight in your front or back pocket.
In the dark, we recommend: putting your cell phone in your pocket and keeping your keys and the flashlight in hand.
