Good ole SWK. How he didn't hit the wall during any of that is beyond me.

As for the original question...dropping a 26" dymondwood straight stick into my baton ring generally sets the tone for any disturbance call I go on. Nobody wants to get whacked with that sumbitch.

I train in MMA as well as teach a self defense class for children and adults. My base is wrestling backed up with jujitsu and I study tang soo do. I use wrestling to get an opponent to the ground and over power them while there and jujitsu for defense while we're there. I use tang soo do for striking strategies to open up the take down or neutralize an attack. Tang soo do has some rather nice counter attacks to common strike attacks.
I train with kubotan, batons, knife, shoge, manriki, whipchain, and handgun. I like these weapons because they are perfect for self defense. They are not hard to learn. Easy to make and give you the element of surprise. I dont train in swords or other long weapons because in reality you dont walk around in public with these weapons at the ready. Things found in the office, shop, or home among just about anywhere has materials to throw these type weapons together in a pinch. 2 sets of keys at either end of a rope or cord can be a lethal weapon.

weapons of opportunity-I can't look at something without thinking about how to use it as a weapon. On Saturday, I cut up some 7/16" steel rod and had a 16" piece left over. Couldn't help but think how useful it might be. I think it ended up under the driver's seat in my car.

Keep a asp baton and surefire flashlight in the truck. Keep a Spyderco Tim Wegner folder in my pocket and another surefire flashlight if walking around the neighborhood at night. Nothing like a blast of ultabright light to shock the senses of your attacker or burgler and gives you that extra second to get the upper hand.
I think the best non lethal weapon is your mind which should be telling you to use common sense and being aware of your surroundings.

For all the Flashlight guys here, check out the Rigid Industries Halo torchlight. Awesome LED light rated at 900 lumens. I know of a place to buy them but they aren't a supporting vendor so I'll refrain from saying unless I'm given the go ahead. They are seriously awesome light for $100. Would make a great gift for your father or a friend.

Two were on the job related. The ASP and OC spray.

The cane is nice in certain situations now that I am retired.

All require proper training before carrying and using.

After an incident more than a few decades ago in Miami the flashlight was deemed not a good impact weapon for LEO's but you use what you need to go home.
