O/C Spray and Kubotan, Bakersfield
In those several instances where a firearm can not be used or carried, alternative means are available to protect yourself. Two of these options, O/C spray and kubotan techniques, will be taught in this class.
O/C (Oleoresin Capsicum) spray is sometimes called pepper spray. This compound is used to cause prompt tearing, pain, respiratory problems, and even temporary blindness. This can be very effective in stopping an attack. Typically propelled from a small canister in personal defense situations, O/C spray offers an effective method to get out of harms way.
The kubotan is a cylindrical device about 5 1/2 inches in length, and it is a little over a half inch in diameter. Kubotans are usually attached to a keyring as a FOB or ornament. Many other objects such as a marker, flashlight, pen, etc., can serve in that role. While quite innocuous, this device can effectively immobilize an aggressor through application to any one of numerous pressure points on the body. Kubotan techniques are quite similar to those found in martial arts.
