    Well its part of bartisu training, or something which they do. same with using a hat, there is also some depictions of using the hat as a shield.

    Probably just logical to throw your hat at someone attacking you.

    Doug Marcaida has a excellent example video on using a baseball hat as a weapon, i can personally attest to practicing the usefulness and fun of these techniques

    I like that, but in this area (and I think in surrounding states) that would be illegal - classified, I think, as a slungshot.

    Yes. And agreed - the same basic tactics work (with a slightly different effect) without them. I just saw that and wanted to point it out before someone decided it was a good idea to actually do. As always, folks need to check local laws before they do things like that. You couldn't even get into the courthouse I volunteer at with that hat on.

    Wait i thought the link at the bottom was part of your signature, pahahaha. Yeah he did in essence just branch out to basically everything he thought was remotely good.

    There is a bicycle defence little snippet some people found as well. (not necessarily his but its the same period)

    anyway this is getting rambily.

    Anyone watch the television series 'Peaky Blinders'? It's a crime drama about a gang in post First World War Birmingham UK, they are called peaky blinders because of the razor blades sewn into the peaks of their flat caps, they used them to slash their enemies faces causing the blood to run down and blind them...….

    It was from an "Ayoob Files" article in a print magazine back in the 90's. Wish I had a link to it.

    I can give you references for people carrying ground red pepper in their pockets to throw in the faces of attackers and victims. Whether or not you like it, it's happened and was effective.

    Barton-Wright mentioned it but it was also known from something called, imms, "Uncle Frank's Hat Trick." That said, the concept predates Barton-Wright by a few centuries. I recall seeing a Rapier play where the defender flings his cloak at the attacker.

    IMS, Fairbairn taught the Camp-X recruits to sew razor blades into the bills of their caps. Not sure where he learned it. Probably Shanghai.
