For those who prefer grappling and joint locks, the kubotan provides added leverage. It may be used to dig into joint, pressure points, or the trachea. The kubotan may be used to snag limbs before or after applying a striking technique. By holding it with several inches protruding, you may hook a part of the attacker's body and follow-up with an immediate strike, or you may strike first and then hook the neck or wrist. As a key ring, the kubotan is legal and unregulated, yet it is a valuable self-defense weapon.
