Here are some simple weapon questions to get the forum going.

1. What is your favorite weapon, regardless of your ability to use?
2. What weapon are you best at?
3. What weapon do you wish you were better at?
4. What weapon do you wish to learn?
5. If in a confrontation, what is your weapon of choice?

my answers are:
1. Chain Whip
2. Bo staff, but since I am still a newb, that is pretty much all I have learned.
3. Nunchaku
4. Tonfa, chain whip, and hookswords
5. I would have to go with a short staff for its simplicity and ease of use.


If you have any others, feel free to post them =)

1. What is your favorite weapon, regardless of your ability to use?

NUNCHAKUS


2. What weapon are you best at?

KNIFE

3. What weapon do you wish you were better at?

JO AND NUCHAKUS


4. What weapon do you wish to learn?

SWORD


5. If in a confrontation, what is your weapon of choice?

JO OR ANY BIG LUMP OF WOOD.

I HAVE EDITED THIS BECAUSE I INITIALLY PUT KNIFE, WHICH WOULD STILL BE MY FIRST CHOICE IF STABBING INTRUDERS/ATTACKERS DID NOT HAVE SUCH SERIOUS LEGAL REPRUCUSSION.

OBVIOUSLY I WOULD NOT CARRY A KNIFE, BUT I WOULD PICK ONE UP IN A TRUE LIFE OR DEATH SITUATION (WEAPON OF OPPORTUNITY RATHER THAN CARRYING A LETHAL WEAPON IN UK LAW)

Heck, I'll take a stab at this, even though I have no weapons experience whatsoever. In fact, my knowledge of weapons comes from the internet and magazines.

1. What is your favorite weapon, regardless of your ability to use?

Probably two scimitars. So darn cool.

2. What weapon are you best at?

As of yet, the only thing I even moderately know how to use is a bo staff.

3. What weapon do you wish you were better at?

Hmm, that would require skill in the first place!

4. What weapon do you wish to learn?

Nuchakus.

5. If in a confrontation, what is your weapon of choice?

Roman Gladius. Small, efficient, easy to use. Stabby!

1. Tonfa
2. Tonfa!
3. Nunchaku
4. Katana
5. Speaking from which kobudo weapon I would most like to use in an encounter: Tonfa. Realistically: Tactical folding knife. We can carry them concealed wahoo!

Bloody poms are obsessed with being caught with a gun or a blade - I wouldn't tolerate it guys.

1. Browning Fabrique National FN Five Seven

2. Any staff.

3. Gim, Chinese straightsword

4. Jutte or Toshu Keibo.

5. Short club, you can use as a stick, short staff or a "point of impact" weapon. A blade may be a blade, but a good short club can break bones and has a greater distance.

1> all of them! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

2> bo, nunchaku, arnis in that order.

At my last grading the graders said my bo skills were absolutely fantastic!! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG] which was very nice of them. I'm the one that our head instructor usually gets to introduce newcomers to bo work and to polish up the ones that need to get better.

I also get to teach the chucks to the newbies, I am reasonably good with them too.

3> katana - I'm just learning more strikes at the moment and loving it! I'd like to do more work with the sai.

4> tonfa - I have had a play but haven't done much as yet with them and have a kata to learn...

5> any sort of stick, a whip or a bloody big bit of wood like a bo. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

Basically anything I can get my hands on will do! Pliers and screwdrivers can be handy too.

I once used a large dog [a german shepherd] as a flail but that's another story.. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

I don't own any guns other than an air rifle, and I don't particularly like knives other than the useful sort of swiss army knife or leatherman.

I carry a hanbo and a set of arnis sticks behind my seat in the car, and a leatherman and a ninja stick in my handbag.

1. sai
2. rokushakubo (not "best at" more like "slightly less worthless")
3. knife
4. none really, but that's only because I don't find the time to practice any kobudo (
5. the sharp unsheathed blade within my voice

Reiki, using a dog as a fail? I'd love to hear that story! =)
