The video below is part two in the Kubaton series. This one will go more in depth than the first one. It will go over striking techniques that you can use on your attacker. This portable and compact self defense weapon is very effective and can give you enough time to stun the attacker so you can run for help if needed. Use it as a key chain and have it ready when you are walking to your car at night. This is a great option for women. Remember you can not carry your Kubaton on an airplane with you. You can in your checked baggage if you’d like to travel with it. We found a great website that is all about the Kubaton. It has a diagram with striking points so you something to refer to. It also discusses the history of the weapon.
“You might be under the impression that the Kubaton, since it is usually associated with Martial Arts weapons, has an ancient history. Not so. It was developed in the latter half of the 20th century by Takayuki Kubota, who is a Grand Master 10 Dan, founder of the Gosoku-ryu style of karate. He is also the founder and president of the International Karate Association.
On 2 August 1964, Kubota was invited by Ed Parker, who was an American martial artist, promoter, teacher, and author, to give a demonstration at Parker’s First Annual International Karate Tournament in Long Beach, California.
In late 1964, he permanently relocated to America. Kubota taught self-defense at the Los Angeles Police Department Academy for several years. He developed the Kubaton initially for use by the female officers of the Los Angeles Police Department.” Purchase and read more at Kubatons.com.
