Self Defense Using a Baton or Baseball Bat : Tips for Self-Defense with Stick Weapons


Tres Tew here. I’m an instructor at Yeshua’s
Ryu Martial Arts and on behalf of Expert Village, I’m going to be talking to you about the expandable
baton. Now we are going to be going over how to use your baton in a bat grip. You just
flip it out how you would normally, going out like this. This will be versus a bat-like
weapon; this could be a bat, a crowbar, a broom handle, or anything. The basic principle
is still the same. So, when he comes with his typical baseball bat swing, we’re assisting
the block with this hand down here. Then we are rolling it to catch right here. From here,
we are going to strike into the face to loosen up this hand. From here, we’ll grab the whatever
weapon he has, strike with a back strike either to the hand or the leg. Maybe we’ll get the
hand out of the way to create that opening to get into the ribs or whatever. So we’ll
do that one more time. He comes across. We are blocking and catching, reaping out. We
can either strike in the face, or we can reach straight to the weapon, strike, strike. He’ll
probably go down at that point. After a strike to the head with a baton, it can be pretty
deadly. It’s a very hard surface. So, just be aware that once you strike him in the head,
he’s probably not going to want to come after you. That’s how to defend yourself against
a stick-like weapon with your ASP baton.

  1. hahaha Zalez1! I've to admit, this video is pretty useless, block, strike, block, block, strike strike strike, strike with your hand, block, bitch slap, strike, sex with his wife, strike. and all that assuming the attacker will stand still after you took his baseball bat. I prefer the good old fashion gun followed by "FREEZE PUNK!"

  2. 1:blocking with that tiny thing, bad idea, assisting a block with your pinky….
    2:pushing your hands onto his hand and making them "fall off" isnt going to work…ever.

  3. Where do they find these kids who present them selves as "experts". The bad thing is, lots of people will listen to you and probably try this stupid crap. It won't work. Its way too fine motor that you lose in a fight.
