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!
As you will see in the video below, there are times that strongly pressing the point into the attacker and immediately dragging backwards with it is also very effective. If you have the option to either strike or whip, then just use whatever action is quickest and most natural for you. Do not overthink what to do... just react and strike! If necessary, follow up with another strike or whip until you have disabled the attacker enough so you can get away to safety.
