A kubotan is a keychain self-defense weapon. While it looks to some like a simple key chain, a kubotan is essentially a blunt close range weapon measuring 5.5 inches long and half an inch wide. It is readily available when you are feeling threatened.
Originally nicknamed the “instrument of attitude adjustment”.
Who should have a kubotan?
- If you feel unsafe walking down the street, through the park or parking lot late at night, a kubotan could help you feel more secure.
- If you are someone who is uncomfortable with pepper spray or other devices then a kubotan is a great self defence tool because it just feels like you’re carrying around a key chain.
