|At the core of good law enforcement and security training is the use of less-lethal and impact weapons --- most predominant of those, the traditional police baton. Written in 1967 and published in conjunction with the F.B.I. Training Academy, this classic book was originally designed for instruction of police officers in the use of the baton (standard wood style, not telescopic), and will show you all you need to know to master this highly-effective weapon. Included in the book is detailed explanation and demonstration of different grips, blocking and striking techniques, and defense against holds and chokes. Though almost fifty years old, this text is still relevant and truly is a perfect instructional tool for law enforcement officers, police recruits and security professionals alike.46 pages.
