Self-Defense & Online Predators

Source: Easy Stand

by TIFFINY CARLSON on AUGUST 3, 2011
In episode #76 of No Free Rides, I am joined by Erik Kondo, a paraplegic and self-defense and online safety expert. We discuss how to stay safe in the physical world, as well as how to protect yourself online, namely from wheelchair fetishists.
Erik has been a paraplegic for over 25 years, making him more than qualified to dispense advice on this sensitive subject. He is the founder of Not-Me.org, a non-profit dedicated to teaching the five D’s of self-defense – Decide, Deter, Disrupt, Disengage and Debrief. Erik is a fountain of information and his advice is a must for anyone new to being disabled!
We also discuss how to spot wheelchair predators online, as well as those pretending to be a wheelchair-user (“pretenders”), which is another tactic that is used to pry personal information from unaware individuals.
Check out Erik’s self-defense site, Not-Me.org, for more information on staying safe no matter the situation.  There’s a related blog post that you might be interested in reading “Ability To Protect: Self Defense for Wheelchair Users” written by Mike Duenas, ATP.
