On this film we show you simple concepts using the telescope bat against different kinds of attacks. We use the telescope bat open and closed. The telescope bat is a highly effective tool which can end a fight quickly by only hurting every involved persons very little. It can be used fully extended at full range as an effective tool and is easy to carry around and store at the mission belt.
The film is both meant for amateurs who want to use the bat as a tool for self-defense, for martial artists who would like to extend their horizon and finally for professionals such as security forces or policemen who use the telescope bat as part of their weapon spectrum. For this film we only use automatic telescope bats. Therefore we will use a big segment of this film to work with the closed bat in order to open it during the fight.
In the second half of this film we show you different techniques using the open bat which can be enforced using any other traditional bat-like object, too.
"This film is dedicated to Bram Frank for being my teacher, friend and family."
