    A good yawara stick is hard to find, February 4, 2006
    By 
    Scott Burright (Laramie, WY USA) –
    (REAL NAME)
      

    This is a hard nylon version of the yawara stick. There used to be some impressive versions of these on the market, but now there’s this one and two others, one aluminum and one wooden, both functional but rather less inspired. The more common pocket stick is the kubotan, which is just a shorter, skinnier yawara stick, usually configured as a keyring. Kubotans come in many shapes and materials.

    As Don Rearic* writes, you can think of a pocket stick as a knife, but with two differences: You can thrust, but not cut; and you can target bony areas. Also, to the extent that poking holes in people is bad legal hygiene, the stick is safer than the knife. You can strike with the “pommel” of the yawara in a hammer blow or with the “point” in a reverse hammer blow or even a sort of rapier thrust, bracing the tip with the thumb. You can also use it to trap or lock joints, if you know what you’re doing.

    Anything you hit even moderately hard is going to hurt. This thing can break bone, pulverize muscle, and shock nerves, all without skinning or fracturing your knuckles. Yes, the product description says it’s non-lethal, but if you whack someone in the head with it, you could kill him. And “just” breaking someone’s bones is no joke, either. Before you try it out on friend or foe, do everyone a favor and take a few whacks at a piece of 3/4″ plywood. This should give you some respect for what this tool can do.

    Unlike many weapons, the yawara stick won’t extend your striking range. You have to get up close and personal with whatever you’re hitting, which usually means it can hit you. If you’re too timid to close range, a pocket stick probably won’t do you a lot of good.

    This thing is like having big, indestructible knuckles on each end of your hand. Highly recommended.

    Excellent but not very portable…, January 13, 2010

    With this weapon one can perform strikes, traps, even aid in throws and holds. My only issue with it is that it is on the large side and cannot be carried in the pocket easily. It is always in my judo bag however, and its excellently designed. For portability I have made my own with hexagonal aluminum stock. If I were a security guard, this would be on my belt!

    This review is from: Cold Steel – Koga SD1, Nylon (Misc.)

    Excellent Cold Steel Product. A little larger that I thought, it would have been nice for the add to mention the dimensions instead of just the weight. I have large hands and protrudes almost an inch from either side of my closed fist. The size make its more challenging to carry on my person than I thought it would be. Regardless, it’s a potent piece of gear, and I highly recommended it!
