How To Use A Metal Baton

Of course, an ordinary civilian would not be as effective at using a baton as a professional police officer, but I would say it’s still somewhat useful compared to bare hands or the Mag Lite that many people resort to. On top of that, someone with a decent amount of martial arts training in escrima, bo, nunhakus, sword, or even empty-hand styles should be able to employ a baton as a reasonable self-defense weapon.

A straight, fixed-length baton (also commonly referred to as a “straightstick”) is the oldest and simplest police baton design, known as far back as ancient Egypt. It consists of little more than a long cylinder with a molded, turned or wrapped grip, usually with a slightly thicker or tapering shaft and rounded tip. They are often made of hardwood, but in modern times are available in other materials such as aluminium, acrylic, and dense plastics and rubber. They range in size from short clubs less than a foot in length to long 36-inch (91 cm) “riot batons” commonly used in civil disturbances or by officers mounted on horseback.

Expandable batons fit perfect in your boot or next to you in your car. If a bad guy wants to make trouble, you’ll have something for them. Collapsible batons can be easily hidden and quickly extended for immediate use.

An expandable baton is opened by being swung in a forceful manner while collapsed, using inertia to extend and lock the segments by friction. Some mechanical-lock versions can also be opened by simply pulling the segments apart. Depending on the design, expandable batons may be collapsed either by being brought down (inverted) on a hard surface, or by depressing a button lock and manually collapsing the shafts.

The expandable baton is probably the most innovative design change in this ancient tool in centuries. It is a series of slightly tapered metal tubes slid together into a telescoping device. When the closed baton is swung and snapped the tubes extend and lock into an extended position, forming a rigid baton. It is easy to conceal and can be an effective defensive tool.

The Expandable Steel Baton is a very dependable and durable self defense device. It comes in different sizes. They are used by a lot of security and police officers. However, the expandable steel baton is become more and more popular with civilians every day. Women that go walking, postal workers and truck drivers depend on expandable steel batons a lot for personal protection.

Most expandable batons have most of their weight concentrated at the grip and the tip tends to be the lightest part since it is the thinnest part of the baton. As such it may deliver less forceful blows than a fixed baton.

In a potentially dangerous situation it is best to have your hand on your weapon. The best place to carry it is a pocket so you can discreetly have your hand on it. If an imminent deadly threat you cannot avoid materializes use lethal force. If the deadly threat is not imminent shout “piss off” and leave the area while keeping your weapon in the ready position (pointed at the ground between you and the offender). In a dangerous situation where you don’t have a gun, or lethal force is not justified, a can of pepper spray is recommended, as is becoming highly proficient with half-a-dozen essential hand-to-hand combat skills (Aikido and Ju-Jitsu are the best martial arts).

The basic collapsable baton techniques take minimal training, but it isn’t a complete self defense system like those John and shockwave and others have studied. A good deal of time and effort has to be dedicated to training with sticks and staffs to deal with attackers with and without weapons so those skills are available to the defender. Basic baton training won’t provide that and the folks that want the intermediate and higher level skills will need to find good instructors to help them develop them.

Once you have gained proficiency with your baton using the striking shield, you are ready to progress to the use of training batons using touch drills to the appropriate target areas. Protective training gear can now be used to build an officers confidence and striking accuracy. Movement, relative positioning, and environmental factors can now be added to increase the realism of your training. Finally, high level decision-making scenarios can now be conducted to put your verbalization, tactics, and weapon systems together.
