In this video we look at how the kubotan can be used to augment methods found in Naihanchi / Tekki Shodan. The kubotan is a short staff which is often made into keyring for everyday carry. The legality of the kubotan is something you need to check in your locality. In the UK, you could not carry the kubotan in public. Section 1 of the Prevention of Crime Act 1953 prohibits the possession in a public place of an offensive weapon without lawful authority or excuse (potential use in self-defence is not considered a good reason / excuse).
