Self Defense Batons
Defending yourself from potential assaults does not require the use of lethal weapons. Extend your reach and force with ease using a powerful self-defense baton. These compact and versatile tools are very simple to operate (training is still recommended due to the physical nature of their use) and effective in most non-firearm confrontations. Law enforcement, private security personnel, and military police routinely include these collapsible batons in their uniform on a daily basis.
Law enforcement agencies have evolved from using nightsticks and saps to today's telescopic steel or aluminum batons. This is because they are more effective at controlling an aggressive person than traditional tools. You can take advantage of what police forces have learned with our great selection of high-quality self-defense batons. They can be used to defend yourself from attack and disable an opponent, allowing you to escape and get help. Striking at the extremities, like arms and legs, will cause enough pain to get them to stop the attack and may prevent them from pursuit.
The basic self-defense baton we are describing is the extendable or retractable baton. This tool operates like an old-fashioned telescope - multiple sections are fully collapsible, allowing for easy transportation, but can be extended in a flash when needed. This feature allows you to carry the baton comfortably when working, traveling, or in public while still having it available to use in the blink of an eye. When collapsed, it's easy to conceal a baton that is 7 to 9 inches long. Alternatively, it's very comforting to have a 21 or 26-inch weapon on hand when the need arises.
The best professional batons are made by ASP, which stands for Armament Systems and Procedures. These weapons are made from the finest materials with high tolerances to ensure years of effective use. They are made of different materials, including steel and aluminum, as well as being made in multiple sizes and grips. This allows for each person to find one that works best for them.
Smith and Wesson, Streetwise and United Cutlery also make great self-defense batons with heat treated steel and easy grip rubber handles. These models are available at a lower cost than their ASP counterparts. Finally, there are the generic versions of the telescopic baton that do not utilize the same manufacturing processes, but do produce a product that has great value for training to get the feel and manage the weight and force produced by a baton. They also help with conditioning the arm, wrist and hand to handle the dynamics of the swing and to practice the maneuvers you wish to learn.
