We should all take ourselves seriously...and then crumple that image up and toss it out the window.

>I believe the kubotan is illegal in some countries - UK in particular.< What an absolutely stupid law, wow I am glad I do not live in the UK. Why don't they go ahead and ban pens, wine bottle openers, pop bottles and candy bars too. Far too dangerous. Idiocy, where did the uk go wrong.. I digress.

Umbrellas are good for poking. Don't try grappling or striking with your average everyday umbrella, it's too lightweight and will break easily. But stabbing motions work great especially to vital areas of the body, it'll withstand a few of those.

Metal pens are a good substitute for kubotan, and good for hitting weak points or throwing as a distraction into another move. Don't use piano wire on someone unless you plan on risking killing them, that stuff cuts through skin way easily and you could find yourself slicing their arteries or something accidentally..

Keys are good for slashing someones face/eyes/neck with.

I've used stuff from a bag of groceries before. Cans of soup pack a lot of kinetic energy, I knocked a guy out by throwing one at his head when he encroached on my comfort zone a few years ago after a night time shopping spree. Of course any hard objects like bottles, etc... would work fine as well.

CD's broken in half can be used to scratch the hell out of someones face but it's a pretty desperate measure. But the edges on the corners are almost as sharp as broken glass. Or you can break it into 3 pieces and use one as a crude shank.

Sharpened or broken pencils can be used to stab the neck / side of the head or eyes. Kind of useless unless you know the right spots to hit as generally a pencil will break before puncturing skin (or skin like material which is what I tested on).

LOL... crude shanks ...all you have to do is ask someone who has "done time".

make a meteor hammer! wow is anyone getting annoyed by my obsession of meteor hammer yet??!!
aaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway all ya got to do is find/buy a nice long rope, not thin like string but not too thick either. it should be the length of you arm span plus height, or so but you can always modify it to whatever the hell you desire.
on one end make a loop that you can quickly slip your wrist into but not so loose it can accidentally slip off.
on the opposite end find something with weight and tie it on. the weight can be up to you in this case but i'd recommend something solid that wont break, no bigger than you fist, and light enough you can maneuver it easily. trial and error.

by the way a meteor hammer is absolutely usless in a crowd with no room to swing it
