The Kubotan is designed to be used against bony surfaces, soft tissue and nerve points. It is effective because of the temporary paralysis or extreme pain it causes. Even for those without experience in a martial art, the Kubotan provides an inexpensive method of self defense.
The Kubotan increases the power of any strike. It is not necessary to waste time or miss an opportunity by trying to be overly precise. It's better to react naturally. Good targets are the groin, stomach, solar plexis, throat, the arm, the shin, hip bone, collarbone, ankle and kneecap. A sharp strike to a bony part of the body will stop an assailant in his tracks. A harder, well placed blow can easily break bones--especially if the force of the blow is not hindered by clothing.
