  • Patent number: 8485879
    Abstract: A fight analysis system to objectively determine the quality and quantity of strikes in a fight. In one exemplary embodiment, one fighter wears a receiving module having a plurality of passive RFID tags at different locations that are read by a striking module (e.g., a knife) when the striking module lands on, or comes in proximity to, the receiving module, to provide the location of a strike. Force sensors in the striking module enable determination of the type and force of a landed strike. A graphical user interface module displays information gathered by the fight analysis system.

  • Patent number: 6761639
    Abstract: Baton (1) includes two handles (14, 16), a first body portion (2) and a second body portion (3) which telescopically slides between a retracted and an expanded configuration. Retaining device (6) holds body portion (3) within body portion (2) when baton (1) is in the retracted configuration. First handle (14) is oriented perpendicular to body portion (2) and is mounted on collar (15) for rotation around body portion (2). Second handle (16) is moveable between a first position wherein handle (16) is aligned with the outer end of body portion (3), and a second position wherein handle (16) is spaced from the outer end of body portion (3) and is arranged perpendicular to second body portion (3). Baton (1) is telescopically expanded by pulling handle (16) away from body portion (2) until the pulling force exceeds the retaining force provided by retaining device (6).

  • Publication number: 20020187838
    Abstract: A truncheon comprises an outer casing member including a smaller engagement portion on an outer end, at least two holes on engagement portion, and at least two detents movable in holes; a flexible sleeve sliding on engagement portion and including an inner peripheral limiting shoulder, an elastic member confined by sleeve and engagement portion being biased against the limiting shoulder, and a peripheral stop on outer casing member engaged with an inner end of sleeve in a storage position of truncheon; a handle extended from outer casing member; and a sliding rod in outer casing member. In use, after rod is unlocked pull rod outwardly from outer casing member until detents lock in first indented portion of rod. In storage, press sleeve laterally and inwardly until sleeve engages stop, thus permitting detents to clear from first indented portion prior to retracting rod into outer casing member until detents lock in a second indented portion or rod. This effects a smooth activation of detents.
