    Bob Koga began his martial arts career at an early age beginning with Judo at 12 and moving on to wrestling in high school. After graduation Bob joined the Air Force and, while stationed in Japan, he resumed his Judo training as well as studying Jiu Jitsu, Jo-do and Aikido. After finishing his stint in the Air Force, Bob moved to Los Angeles where he joined the LAPD and served with great distinction for 25 years. During his tenure with the LAPD, Bob became widely recognized as an outspoken proponent of the straight baton as opposed to the PR24® or side handle baton (currently popular in departments across the land).

    Made of virtually unbreakable plastic, the SD can increase the ability of the average person to defend himself several times over. With proper training, it can function as a fantastic aid in leverage when obtaining joint locks or submission holds. But where it really shines is as an intermediate impact tool. You see, police and civilians alike face a perplexing dilemma when contemplating employing fist or baton blows. Blows struck with the fist may be too weak, or worse, result in a broken hand, while blows struck with a baton may be too powerful resulting in grave injury or even death. The SD however, solves this problem, neatly bridging the gap by concentrating and magnifying the effect of hand blows while minimizing the likelihood of permanent injury or death. If you're looking to expand your continuum of force options in a self-defense situation, we heartily suggest you buy a Koga SD.

    Perfect Self Defense tool to carry in a purse or pocket. I now carry mine everywhere; being that it's made of plastic that feels like wood and practically indestructible make it ideal for any circumstance where lethal force is not needed. The size of the ridges fits the hand well and the ends are just long enough for strikes without being overly large or burdensome. Also great for applying pressure to points if you just want enough to get someone to let go, or drop something.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a carry case for the inside pocket or waistband that is easily accessible.

    The Koga SD2 is perhaps the more practical of the two Kogas for the average person. That is, it's smaller and more easily concealed. There are a number of subtleties built into this short stick that will escape the notice of most people. For example, the center ridges not only aid in gripping the stick, but they can also be used to apply pressure to various body parts or for striking. The sharp edges near the tips can also be used to apply pressure to your assailant. The tips can be used equally well to strike or to apply pressure (poke, scrape, etc.).

    This self-defense stick is for the martial artist and non-martial-artist alike. Students of karate will find that it enhances their strikes. Students of judo and jujitsu will use it to help off-balance their assailants, and also use it for joint locks. I suggest you watch Robert Koga's videos on YouTube. This is a very versatile weapon that anyone can use, regardless of experience or training.

    This baton will fit neatly in the single front pocket of your hooded sweatshirt, or in the back pocket of your jeans. Law-enforcement officers will find that the Nite Ize flashlight holster will hold it perfectly. I highly recommend both the Koga SD2 and it's larger version, the Koga SD1.
