    Probably a collapsible baton or stick baton to give sharp hard rapping it hurts or something like that hope it helps.

    I carry a Spyderco Endura folding knife clipped inside the waistband of my shorts. I don’t know if this would be legal in CA.

    OC spray AKA pepper gas.
    available at most hardware stores and places like Walmart near the checkout or in sports section.
    Legal as long as not larger than 2.5 oz.

    I suggest you actually practice like cops do with their holstered weapons. They develop muscle memory so that in a dynamic situation they can, without thought, get their weapon out and ready.

    Stun guns, batons, etc. are useless for self defense. You have to get to close to the bad guy and the learning curve is much harder than with OC.

    At age 16, with your parents written permission, you can carry pepper spray or a stun gun/Taser. I would not recommend running down the street carrying a fixed-blade knife in plain view, and it is illegal to carry one concealed (even if a knife was a good defensive weapon which it is not).
