You can use the length of this weapon to great strategic advantage. The light and fast “cracker” end, or the solid and heavy “handle” end, can threaten damage in different ways.
One of the biggest issues in combat is judging, controlling, and manipulating the distance between you and your opponent. Combat Whips offer a flexibility that allows you to defend and attack at many distances.
- You can maintain some distance and intimidation with a “crack” that breaks the sound barrier inches from an opponents face.
- Long range attacks can be made quickly with the soft cracking end of the whip or the solid handle section.
- Holding the whip in the middle and swinging the handle works much like a stick or nunchuk
- In close range the whip is an excellent tool for trapping, restraining, or choking.
