Need advice: Kubotan books?
Mods, if this belongs somewhere else please move--not a gun thread, not a knife thread, but still Concealed Carry Weapons related.

As you all might recall, a lot of my few friends are in the Education sector, which means they are unable to CCW on the job under WA law--so I've been working on helping them with alternate techniques and tools to End Run around it with other defensive devices, preferably devices that have other primary purposes so they can assert rebuttals if challenged by hoplophobic admin about "It's JUST a flashlight", etc.

Anyway, one of my preferred recommendations has been flashlights designed for use as Kubotan-type tools (for example, Smith & Wesson SW747PLT, which I'm giving an awful lot of as Christmas presents this year)... so I need some recommendations on Kubotan reference books, since a tool is pointless without the knowledge of how to effectively deploy it.

Why not look for kubotan videos on Youtube? I'll bet there are a bunch of them. Watch a few and pick a good one or two.

...I've got an old book, that seems to have gone out of print. I just did a search at Amazon - limited to Books - for "kubotan persuader baton" and came up with three titles from Joseph Trancale, a name I recall from ASLET days.

Key chain is the way to go. The Kubotan got judicial notice as not being a "weapon" and the maker will aggressively act to support that. I had a really brief go-round with school administrators over the one my older son carried.

You really do need a class. If not, a training partner and both of you need to be willing to accept bruises and assorted aches and pains afterward. You have to also remember that 10-12% won't be vulnerable to certain of the application techniques because their nerves aren't located properly.

Thanks, guys--Amazon was my first stop, but I wanted to know who all you guys considered "reputable" authors other than Kubota himself.
