Blunt Weapons Skills
Blunt weapons of various lengths (staff, half staff, baton, short baton, pommel), are utilized to inflict blunt impact trauma upon the enemy, and to fend off his attacks.
Blunt weapons have a more flexible utility than edged and pointed or projectile weapons because they can be handled along their entire length, and at both ends. They afford greater discretion than sharp weapons because they can be used to inflict a wider range of non lethal injuries, or to impose obstruction and limited control, yet can be utilized to project deadly force when necessary.
Moreover, virtually any object can be utilized for effect as a blunt weapon. Thus blunt objects not designed for combat can be carried anywhere unaffected by legal regulation unless and until brought to bear against an aggressor.
