First Earth Battalion – sounds more than a little like something out of Star Trek, right?  In many ways, this real life military organization mirrored concepts found in science fiction vehicles like Gene Roddenberry’s legendary Wagon Train To The Stars.  

Martial artist and inventor, Peter Brusso, is one of the last First Earth Battalion practitioners.  His self defense tool, The Defender, is so unique and highly respected it was featured in the George Clooney hit movie, The Men Who Stare At Goats.

Beyond all the historic events and fanciful Hollywood interpretation, it’s a simple fact that the Defenders look an awful lot like weapons Klingons would carry and utilize for some serious combat.  Check out these photos – couldn’t you picture Worf or Gowron carrying these bad boys?
