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.
