Kubotan Self-Defense Keychains
Sometimes referred to as a yawara stick, mini baton or spelled kubaton – the kubotan key chain is a highly accessible and effective self-defense weapon. A kubotan can be used to stabilize your fist, apply pressure to sensitive parts of an attacker’s body, or to gain leverage on an attacker’s wrist or fingers.
Kubotans are designed to be used against bony surfaces, soft tissue and is extremely effective on nerve or pressure points by causing temporary paralysis or extreme pain. Think of the difference between stepping on someone’s foot with a wide flat sole and stepping down with a high heel. Both hurt, but the pressure is greatly intensified when concentrating all of the power into a much smaller and compact surface area.
Even for those without previous experience in the martial arts, the Kubotan provides an inexpensive and easily learned method of self defense.
Kubotans can increase the power of any strike. It’s better to react naturally and not waste time or miss an opportunity by trying to be overly precise. Good soft targets for a kubotan are the groin, stomach, solar plexus, throat, the arm, while some effective harder targets could be the shin, hipbone, collarbone, ankle, and kneecap.
A sharp strike to any bony part of the body will encourage an attacker to stop his assault. A harder, well-placed strike can easily break bones, especially if the force of the blow is not hindered by clothing.
Poking or striking vulnerable areas of the body are the most basic applications for a kubotan keychain. 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.
Keeping this in mind, a person can avoid the confusion and frustration of trying to remember specific strikes for specific targets. Instead, simply remember to strike hard on bones and poke hard into soft tissue and pressure points.
Kubotans, much like telescopic steel batons are rather forgiving, as there is really no wrong strike. The strike does not have to be perfect, just hit as hard as you can, to the closest body part. Even a glancing blow will inflict enough pain to make your assailant think twice about continuing his attack, since nerves are close to the surface of most bony parts.
You can also use the keys that you have attached to the kubotan. You can hold the kubotan keychain and swing the keys in a very compact and deliberate blow to the attacker’s face or throat.
