The Kubotan is a 13 cm long and 1 cm thick rod. It is mostly made out of a light metal, and on the edge of the rod there is a ring which is used as a key ring, thus giving the impression of a harmless key chain.
There are two variants: one with a slightly pointed edge, the other with a cut off edge. (Samples on this site’s store)
Defense or attacks instructed are performed by the Kubotan itself or the keys. Techniques of getting free from grips, strangling and back or front holding use the Kubotan. Kubotan training is dynamic, interesting and extremely enjoyable. The most important aspect of this training is that in a very short time, even a few lessons, the trainee shows self defense abilities.
The Kubotan has become a self defense instrument for hundreds of thousands around the world. Men and women all over are seen carrying Kubotan as key chains.
