The Kubotan, also spelled Kubatan and Kubutan is a close quarter, self-defense keychain.
It was developed by a Japanese Martial Artist named “Taka” Kubota in the late 60’s. The
Kubotan is in fact derived from what is known as a Yawara (pocket stick) a traditional
Japanese weapon used for self-defense. Typically they are made of wood, metal or plastic.
Kubotan’s may come in a variety of shapes and colors. They are usually 5.5in length and
.56-.60 in diameter. They all have key rings attached to them (either screwed or cut through).
When used as a self-defense tool the principal targets are all and everyone you come in contact with.
Bone, Flesh, and all pressure point sensitive areas. The Kubotan’s can be used to stab/poke, flail, and lock/rake. Students are taught a basic set/forms of striking the body and they in turn develop a flow through combat scenarios. They are also exposed to joint locks and takedowns along with pain compliance escapes.
