Some people call them kubotans.The tactical pen increases the power of any strike. You don’t need to be an expert to know what you’re doing. Just hit as hard as you can to the closest body part. Nerves are relatively close to the surface. Any part of the body that you strike, even a glancing blow, will inflict enough pain to make your assailant think twice about continuing his attack.Strike an assailant in the eye with the tactical pen and he will not be your friend for long.
