people would agree that the majority of spontaneous
attacks are going to require you to defend yourself
open handed, at least initially, I would like to add
that you should not over look using whatever you happen
to have in your hand to enhance your counter attack.
You don’t have to stick with the tool in your
hand if you are carrying something else but it may just
get you to the first down and allow you to upgrade to
a knife or pistol if the situation requires.
I have always recommended carrying a decent pen in your
hand your hand during the day and flashlight at night.
For me the problem with a pen has always been that when
carried in positions where they are readily accessible
can ruin a lot of clothes when they leak. Our uniform
shirts are gray and I have lost several over the years
to the ink monster. That is one thing but losing a good
dress shirt or pair of trousers is worse.
Alpha Innovations has just introduced the Stylus. It is a in the shape
of a pen and made out of the same polymer as their Kubatons and the Jaw Jacker. The fact that everyone
these days seems to carry a Blackberry or another PDA
makes this thing a necessity that attracts no undue
attention. At first look it appears to be just a pen.
As a matter of fact I have seen several people pick
one up and try to twist it to make the pen come out.
Don’t get me wrong I love Kubatons but the majority of
the world knows exactly what they are. The other problem
is that I personally don’t like to carry my keys
on one since it lends itself to the tool itself being
stuck in the waistband or at the bottom of a purse.
Since receiving my AI Stylus I have made a habit of
carrying it in my strong side front pocket as pictured.
If I draw it by putting my thumb behind it I get a hammer
grip. If my thumb goes in front of it I get the Saber
grip which goes right into my favorite grip the lobster
When it comes to hands I am a germaphobe,
I have gotten into the habit of drawing my Stylus as soon as I get out of
my car and using it to hook doors to open them, use
the ATM and even keep it in my hand when doing business
with money in my hand. This common use builds neuropath
ways that you are not going to be able to achieve with
your knife or gun in this fashion. If you stop at 7-11
and walk in with your knife or gun in your hand there
are going to be some problems.
The concentration of force on a small surface area of
the AI Stylus is massive and hurtful.
As soon as I got mine I gave myself a good shot to the
back of my hand from about an inch away. It gave me
an electrical shock, hurt like hell and made my whole
arm go numb.
Recently while teaching a class that included pocket
stick / flashlight I took the smallest female in the
class and told her that I was going to put her in a
very tight rear bear hug and that I wanted her to use
the Stylus on the back of my hand
and I was going to try not to let go. She did, and made
fun of the noise I made when I let her go like I hade
The AI Stylus should have a place in
everyone’s personal protection program. And it
should be right after mindset and awareness. Something
effective in the hand that does not require strength
to be effective. It may very well give you just enough
room to get a way or create time and space to employ
a more appropriate tool.
Below are pictures of another carry postion in the shirt,
the Stylus is easily deployed from the startle response.
Out of everything that AI makes the Stylus is the one tool that is
a no brainer for anyone no matter his or her environment
or skill level.
