Behind the Exposure: Joelle

Posted by Joelle Rozek on 10/21/19 10:05 AM

Have you ever wondered what it's like to experience the effects of a TASER device? Since I joined the TASER Self-Defense team back in May, I had so many questions surrounding exposures. What would it feel like? Could I fight through it? How would I react?

Want to see how it went? Watch the video below and keep reading for everything I learned in my TASER exposure.

Things I learned from my exposure:

  1. The build up and anticipation was way worse than the exposure itself. My anxiety in the days leading up to it was super high! However, once the exposure was over I realized it was a completely different experience than I thought it would be. I let my own imagination get away from me.
  2. It was not a pain free experience, but you also feel the vibrations and pulses from the TASER device. It gives your arms and legs an interesting tingling feeling.
  3. While I could not move or respond because of the NMI, I was able to hear everything my team was saying around me.
  4. It was the longest five seconds of my life, but once the five seconds were over, I was up, moving around, and enjoying the adrenaline high!
