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.


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.






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.


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.



No weapon will make you invincible.  No weapon can guarantee and favorable outcome in all situations, but a baton is worth investigating.
