Even for those without experience in a martial art, the Kubotan provides an inexpensive and easy-to-learn method of self- defense. Designed to be used against bony surfaces, soft tissue and nerve points, the Kubotan increases the power of any strike, often causing temporary paralysis and extreme pain. The most basic applications involve striking or poking vulnerable areas of the body with the Kubotan, such as the groin, stomach, solar plexus, throat, the arm, the shin, hipbone, collarbone, ankle, and kneecap. A sharp strike to a bony part of the body will encourage an assailant to stop his attack. A harder, well-placed blow can easily break bones especially if the force of the blow is not hindered by clothing. 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! Because nerves are close to the surface of bony parts, even a glancing blow will inflict enough pain to make your assailant think twice about continuing his attack. You can also use your keys attached to the Kubotan – simply hold the Kubotan and swing the keys for an effective blow to the face. The Kubotan is legal and entirely unregulated. To most people, the Kubotan is little more than a nondescript key ring, but it is a powerful self-defense tool that could someday save your life.
