Less Lethal Kubotan

A 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.

“I’m looking into purchasing a new handgun and this is THE PLACE to go to rent a variety of handguns to see what you like before purchasing. Great customer service. Jerome was so helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. Based on what I told him I was looking for, he recommended a pistol that I probably wouldn’t have tried and it ended up being my favorite! Would definitely go back again!”
