Baton or Stick Fighting

Let's say you're about to be attacked by 2 or 3 drunk teenagers.If you're cornered in this situation, maybe you are justified inusing a knife to defend yourself. But, you're all but entirely unableto adjust the severity of your defense with a knife. Slashingclothing or a shallow cut is not going to have the impact necessaryto stop an attacker. You could attempt to cut ligaments and tendonsthat would incapacitate a person, but it would be difficult to dothis without also potentially killing them. With a bluntweapon you can injure to varying degrees, with a knife you cannotreliably do the same.
Lack of Impact
I know a number of people who have been stabbed or slashed with aknife. Not a single one of them even knew they were being attackedwith a knife. They didn't feel it. I know others who have been hitwith sticks, including myself, and every one of them felt it. Gettinghit with a blunt object hurts! Not only does it hurt, but it canbreak bones. A good shot with a stick to the hand, knee, orshin can incapacitate someone without doing extreme damage.If necessary a blunt object can also be used to cause greater damage.The same is not true of a knife. You can incapacitate someone bykilling them, or nothing. And, even in killing with a knife, it'slikely to take some time. One good crack in the shin with a stick orexpandable baton can drop a person instantly.
In a knife vs. knife encounter, even if you 'win', you'relikely to take serious damage yourself. In a stick vs. knifeencounter, with proper footwork, the stick wielder has a much greaterchance of evading and taking out the knifer with little or no damageto himself.
(The same cannot be said of a machete or sword. Of course amachete vs. a knife is altogether different. However, very few peopleare willing to carry a machete for self defense! An expandable batoncan be carried almost as easily as a knife and can function as a'stick', or long blunt weapon.)

Sticks are very effective and needs to be highly recommended. In our society today, fire arms are the big hit. However, it is batons that remain one of the longest defense weapons in human history.We should learn from the past for a better future. We at SDRI carry and instruct in She'bet ( She vet) stick training. It is baton in hebrew. We use a kubaton to a 10' full stick for defense.

well post !!Thank you its no doubt automated spam is a huge problem clouding blog posts. Its important to separate well meaning commenter’s with a website from those who did not even look at the material offered. I need to do this on a golf blog I own this will be a big help. I love the blog engine platform.

Yes. Stick or as we call them Batons are very effective in so many areas. However, it is misunderstood. I carry a product called the Light Stick. It is a Baton. Flash Light, and Pepper Spray all in one. If a person has a knife, shovel, etc. A baton can and will help in many areas for defense. It would be a good defense weapon for women. Dare Devil and Night Wing Super Heroes use batons. Batons is a misunderstood weapon that is very effective.
