The most basic applications involve striking or poking vulnerable areas of the body with the Kubotan. Generally speaking, swinging strikes work better against bony surfaces while fleshy areas are more susceptible to pokes and jabs with the ends of the Kubotan. With this concept in mind, a person avoids the confusion and frustration of trying to remember specific strikes for specific targets. Instead, one simply remembers to strike bones and poke soft tissue and pressure points.
There is no wrong strike. Just hit as hard as you can the closest body part. The strike does not have to be perfect. Since nerves are close to the surface of most bony parts, even a glancing blow will inflict enough pain to make your assailant think twice about continuing his attack.
You can also use the keys that you have attached to the Kubotan. You can hold the Kubotan and swing the keys. It is most effective when you hit the attacker in the face.
The Kubotan is legal and entirely unregulated. To most people, the Kubotan is little more than a nondescript key ring. While the Kubotan is not particularly intimidating, it remains an effective self-defense instrument. It really can save your life.
Of course, with the Pepper Mace™ Baton you have the added protection of pepper spray. Sprays up to 5 feet. Contains 3 one second bursts. Refills available.
