A couple of weeks ago a flatmate of mine got mugged as she was going back to our dormitory. Due to the happening our resident assistant urged us to become more knowledgeable about self defense weapons.
She scheduled an impromptu mini-seminar introducing all of us to devices such as stun guns peppers sprays and kubotans. She even more taught us on how to make a self defense weapon function successfully towards opponents.
Amongst all the tools that she introduced the one which hit my interest was the kubotan. Kubotans are small aluminum cylinders that come in several colors and have either sharp or flat tips. These kinds of weapons look like common key rings.
In spite of appearances a kubotan can become much more effective as compared to other weapons for self defense. This is because they appear to be so harmless and not intimidating that an attacker would never guess them to be weapons whatsoever.
By reading more regarding kubotan key chains on the internet I discovered that the best blows carried out with the weapon should target the groin stomach solar plexus throat arm shin hip bone collarbone ankle as well as kneecap.
A sharp hit making use of a kubotan to a bony area of the body will definitely deter an assailant in order to cease his attack. A well-placed strike can even split bones especially if the pressure of the blow isnt hindered by clothing.
I also found out that swinging strikes are more effective on hard and bony areas of the body. The fleshy parts meanwhile experience more pain from pokes and jabs with the ends of a key chain kubotan.
I was really drawn in with the simpleness of the kubotan. As such I soon acquired one for myself. The others felt more comfortable with other kinds of devices however I am happy that we all went out and got ourselves personal weapons for protection. At the end of the day whatever device youve got what really matters is being aware of how to make a self defense weapon perform a good job of safeguarding you.
