These defensive implements are increasing in popularity. Cecil Burch of Immediate Action Combatives explains that, although they can be useful, they are not a substitute for knowledge and skill. Merely possessing one does not guarantee you will prevail in a defensive encounter. You must know how to punch and block in order for a small impact tool to be effective and in order not to hurt yourself with it.

    Love the key chain. Is it legal in all 50 states?

      Hi, Kent! You’d need to not only read the law in the area you are concerned about, but also understand that your INTENT to carry anything as a weapon can change the legality issue. Baseball Bats are “legal” in all 50 states, but you could still be charged with carrying one as a weapon.

      I don’t know about any other states but good old California would call that brass knuckles.

    That’s a one finger brass knuckle. Unless it has some other practical use (belt buckle, bottle opener) it’s going to be seen as illegal. Better just to carry your keys normally and use them to stab with in a push dagger grip. Also, you could “get away with” carrying a standard kubaton. I think a person with little to no training can make better use of one of those by just putting it in an icepick grip and going to work on an attacker with it. On another note, when it comes to training, not everyone has the time, money, or even the desire, which is a shame

    If you know how to deploy it and use it I will take any advantage I can get on the street.

    I just revisited this and realized we are all focusing on the implement and it’s legality.
    WE ALL MISSED THE POINT
    Practice, Practice, Practice!!! Don’t rely on anything unless you can rely on yourself!!!

    This guy is a clown. He repeats himself almost as much Trump. More than that, he doesn’t explain that the keychain he shows is totally illegal to possess on your person in many jurisdictions; the brass knuckles laws. And to use them can be considered a felony. His next grave error is one of omission: In this confrontation scenario, a conscious person is already ready. One doesn’t walk to a car without oc or something already in their hand ready to go. A knowledgeable person should carry keys ready to get into their car. And they can be a devastating tool for self defense if used properly. And no one will ever get arrested for carrying keys or using them in a SD mode. And no one is going mock a person for a stupid looking bulbous attachment to their keychain. Probably doesn’t fit into a pocket vey well either. At least the “Little Kitty” was attractive.
    This video was worse than the guy who recently demonstrated an archaic revolver reload. At least he didn’t repeat himself.
