Kubotan is, in essence, a mini stick used for self-defense purposes. The kubotan is a unique self-defense weapon that is approximately the size of a thick pen or magic marker and it often has a key ring attached to its end.

The Kubotan can be made out of a variety of different materials including steel, aluminum, wood, and plastic so its actual weight will vary. The kubotan appears like a nondescript key ring and therefore can be transported and concealed very easily. Best of all, it’s very inexpensive and can be purchased easily.

As simple and effective as the kubotan can be, it does require considerable training to use it effectively in a self-defense situation. Using one is not just a matter of holding it in your hand and striking your adversary. There is much more to this versatile self-defense instrument. As a matter of fact, there are other applications as well, such as handgrip techniques, stances, and striking target factors that need to be taken into consideration.
