This amazing little weapon of self -defence, must be considered one of the most economical-totally effective methods of protection available.
Considered the OLD MANS tool of self-defence, the snapping short stick is a totally deceptive weapon. Approximately 11 inches in length and 1 inch in diameter, and made of oak, the bone breaker is used in short shocking strikes against bony portions of the anatomy and for paralyzing nerve centres. Once contact is made on bony protrusions of the enemy`s anatomy, the bone breaker shatters the bone, much as rock hitting a window-shield of a car at high speed. The length and width of the weapon form a tool similar to a turning fork, creating vibrations as the oak stick makes contact with another object. These vibrations enter the bone and create a shattering effect upon contact, totally disabling the attackers portion of his anatomy as it enters your sphere of defence.
The hands cord attached to the butt of the weapon creates a release-retraction method, not available in other methods of self-defence , such as the " Fan " or " Yawari Stick ". The bonebreaker can be snapped out and retracted quickly by use of the cord attached to the weapon and wrapped over the thumb and outside of the weapon-hand, it creates an added snap and shock to the initial strikes.
1, Grasping the stick
4, Combination's and Take-downs
4, Chocking and Control
This fascinating weapon is extremely deceptive, and great caution should be taken during its training and use.
At close quarters in crowded or tight areas where the baton becomes restricted because of interval, the bone breaker exceeds all forms of defensive close-quarter combatives aimed at controlling the assailant.
All fighting techniques of the stick are combined with striking, kicking, joint locking and throwing of chocking.
