Available in Black, Pink, Blue or Silver. Originally developed as a tool for police officers to restrain suspects without permanent injury. It is often touted as extremely effective in breaking the will of unruly suspects. Because of that the Kubotan is also sometimes dubbed the instrument of attitude adjustment.”
Awesome! Nothing like a good old fashioned can of …”attitude adjustment” to open up on the perpetrator who thought he found a defenseless victim. Alright ladies, our instructions are simple: Follow your instincts and fight your booty off with this bad boy in hand.
But in case you need more instruction, here is the manufacturer's official blow by blow breakdown…The Kubotan is designed to be used against bony surfaces, soft tissue and nerve points. It is effective because of the temporary paralysis or extreme pain it causes. Even for those without experience in a martial art, the Kubotan provides an inexpensive method of self defense.
The Kubotan increases the power of any strike. It is not necessary to waste time or miss an opportunity by trying to be overly precise. It's better to react naturally. Good targets are the groin, stomach, solar plexis, throat, the arm, the shin, hip bone, collarbone, ankle and kneecap. A sharp strike to a bony part of the body will stop an assailant in his tracks. A harder, well placed blow can easily break bones--especially if the force of the blow is not hindered by clothing.
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. Simply remember to strike bones and poke soft tissue and pressure points.
There is no wrong strike. Just hit as hard as you can. 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 you have attached to the kubotan. You can hold the kubotan and swing the keys. This is most effective when you hit 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 installment and it can save your life!
