The Baton has been a proved self-defense tool for many generations.  To this very day, many LEO (Law Enforcement Officers) carry a baton and would rather use a baton in a “hands-on” situation, than use a firearm.  Why is that?  Here are 10 simple things about a baton that can help save your bacon.

1.) A Baton NEVER runs out of ammo.  It can be used again and again in an encounter with a bad person.

2.) A Baton NEVER malfunctions or jams.  It is simply a stick….bang it over bad guy’s head 🙂

3.) A Baton gives you options:  Lethal or less than lethal, a baton can do it all.  You do not HAVE to seriously or morally injury someone in order to use a baton.

4.) A Baton is easy to carry and legal in most states.  With gun bans looming, firearms are getting harder to get and harder to carry.  A baton fills the gap nicely.

5.) A Baton is easy to learn…..Use the stick to hit bad guy, repeat, repeat, repeat until threat is no longer a threat.

6.) A Baton is easy to conceal.  Get a 16″ inch baton and stick it in your front pocket….done.  No fancy holsters to buy

7.) A Baton makes you look like a true Ninja….ok, maybe not, be maybe so

8.) A Baton can be used for offensive or defensive movements.  In short, you can block or strike with one.

9.) A Baton is the most natural weapon a human can use.  Give a child a stick and even with no training, they are using it effectively.

10.) Finally, I like Batons….because I do.

ONE MORE FREE ONE

11.) A Baton is an effective tool for hikers, joggers, runners, walkers, and others against dogs and other animals.  You do not need to kill Fido, just kindly tell him to “shooo” as you bop him on the head.

 

 

 

 


Rule of STUPID

The rule of STUPID can be summarized very quickly as, “Do NOT go to STUPID places, with STUPID people, and do STUPID things, at STUPID times.”

 

I wish I developed this, but the credit goes to John Correia.

 

By day, John Correia, is a pastor in the Phoenix area of Arizona.  In his free time, John is the webmaster behind ActiveSelfProtection.com .  From this platform Pastor Correia has developed on of the most popular channels on YouTube.com.

 

Each day, John narrates a video clip of a situation (usually surveillance footage) in which someone was called to defend themselves.  He offers tips and advice along the way.

 

John came up with, what he calls, THE RULES OF STUPID.  Using these easy principales, your odds of staying safe GREATLY increase.

 

Let’s look at them one by one….

 

  1. Do NOT go to stupid places.  Just what is a “stupid places”.  I think if you think enough about this, you can create your own list.  In short, it is a place where a crime is MORE LIKELY to happen.  You know what areas of your city are just not safe.  Avoid them OR be very cautious when you enter these areas.
    1. Convenience Stores…with your drunk friend….flashing a wad of cash after cashing a paycheck….at 1 AM…. in a bad area of town….EQUALS STUPID!!

 

 

  • …With stupid people.  We all have that one friend.  You know who I am talking about.  That one person that can not help but invite trouble.  Maybe it is intention or maybe it is just the way they are wired but for some reason, this person is a trouble magnet.  This is NOT the best person to take to the grocery store at 2 AM when they are drunk.

 

 

 

  • ..and do stupid things.  Examples of this vary widely.  Flashing cash, keying cars, selling Craigslist items at 2 AM, yelling at protesters, picking a fight, whatever.

 

 

 

  • …at stupid times.  The dark can be your friend or it can work against you.  Stay away from the bad spots in town after dark…if you have to be in these areas, be careful.  Simple as that.

 

 

I hope these common sense thoughts spark some thoughts.  Just use your brain, it is the best tool you will ever have to keep yourself safe.


EXPANDABLE BATONS 101

batonFormer U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt’s once said , “Speak softly, and carry a big stick.”  While this advice is a great foreign policy, it is also a wonderful, less-than-lethal self-defense option.

 

Some people are not comfortable or able to carry a firearm.  The expandable baton is a great PLAN B option.  With a minimal amount of training, person can carry a compact but effective self-defense tool with them always.

An expandable baton is a hard striking tool that is made from very solid metal rods.  These rods fold in on themselves and make the baton easy to hide in a pocket, purse, jacket, on the belt.  A typical 26 inch baton can fold down to about an 8 inch secton.

Using the baton is a lot like using a stick. There are countless martial arts systems developed around the use of a single stick in combat.  A person can learn to strike, thrust, and execute joint locking techniques within a short amount of time.

The baton gives the user the advantage of speed, force multiplication, and reach.  These elements can be critical in a self-defense situation.

BASIC STRIKES

Strike 1-  There are two similar ways to strike with the expandable baton.  The first method is very simple, it is the same motion as you would use to swing a club or baseball bat.  This motion starts at one side of the body and continues all the way over to the other side.  You are looking for POWER in this technique.

Strike 2- This technique is like a whipping motion.  Imagine the baton is like a bullwhip and you are whipping the tip at the target.  You are looking for SPEED in this motion.

Strike 3- This is a thrusting motion.  Imagine the baton is a sword tip.  You are thrusting the tip of the baton at weak areas of the human body.
