No weapon is ideal. Filipino martial arts uses the short stick and the short staff. Though useful at close range, the stick is poor at ending altercations and lacks reach. Meanwhile, the staff is a great stopper, but unwieldy up close. Routine carrying of either attracts attention.

A long stick has much to recommend it, being an effective stopper, with good reach. It’s two handed and one can carry about a cane ( a baseball bat is a good variant) with no undue notice. It’s one big problem, using it up close, can be overcome with training.
