“I was so disgusted with innocent people being harmed that I felt compelled to create a self defense product that just about anyone can use for protection. So, I combined my skills as both a martial artist and a graphic designer and invented a unique personal safety accessory – theMUNIO Designer Self Defense Keychain!” -Phil Ventrello

How to Use MUNIO:
1. First, its important to hold MUNIO correctly. Place MUNIO in your dominant hand with the tip sticking out below your pinkie finger. The other side with the keys will be sticking out above your thumb. This is a comfortable and powerful grip, and will allow you to use the point to strike both forward and backward, as well as easily whip an attacker with your dangling keys.
2. The moment an assault starts, strike or whip the closest part of the attacker's body - and HURT him! Strike with the pointed end or swing your keys and whip with as much power, speed and intensity as you can to cause as much pain as possible to disable your attacker. Thin skinned areas close to bone are ideal to maximize the pain of the strike. The entire head, face, eyes and neck are great targets, as well as the top of the hands, the forearms, the thighs, etc.
Whether you are striking with the point, or slashing with your keys , or a combination of both, you should react quickly.and aggressively. According to national research, forceful physical resistance is an extremely successful strategy to prevent rape. In fact, a woman who fights back aggressively gains an 86% chance of avoiding the rape and incurs little chance of additional injury!
