Thanks for the gadget link!

However side-handle batons have serious issues. Just because lots of cops carry them does not make them any good.

A strike with a stick is a natural motion that uses the strongest muscle groups in your arms. A tonfa or PR-24 strike requires unnatural motions with accessory muscles. The side-handle actually worsens the grip in some situations.

It seems as if one would be able to block effectively with a side-handle baton. The answer is yes and no -- and why block when you can parry, and why parry when you can both parry and strike?
