I'm liking the sais. But I've gotta go with a Katana. I just got a brand new one. It's beautiful. Something about when you hold it...it makes you feel immortal.

I prefer the Shaolin straight sword. Combinations are almost limitless, and, if you're trained by someone who actually knows what they're doing, you can counter just about any weapon that you can possibly face.

the chucks look good even if they're kind of worthless...

does a flail qualifies as a MA weapon?

Who said nunchaku are worthless? The way most people flip and spin them around, they are worthless, but not when wielded correctly.

My favorite (kobudo, because that's the only weapon system I train in) weapons are tonfa and eiku.

I agree with Alejandro. nunchaku are not worthless, they can be very effective and deadly weapons if weilded correctly. If you can only use them in the sport aspect they are useless. But if you can strike with them, they are very effective!

My favorite weapons are the sais and kamas.

I've sparred in weapons divisions against nunchaku practicioners, and none yet have been able to do much against my straight sword.

Quite frankly, nunchaku are all but useless unless you can lay someone out with the first shot; which, granted, is more than likely.

The brain over all others.

Corny but truthful.


As for physical weapon...whatever I can get my hands on at the time.

As far as just the weapon itself, I gotta agree with the Katana fans. Japanese swordsmanship and the traditions that come along with katanas just make it a stylish and almost mystical weapon. Probably one of the few weapons that can be used as decoration and stuff too hehe. Also, katanas are in the swords category. Just something about swords taht always make them a part of legends and such.

As far as actually using a weapon, I've become a big fan of Shaolin Staff. Just such a versatile weapon. It feels pretty smooth and fun to run through the forms. There's a rewarding feeling in being able to switch its lengths for blocks or powerful strikes. Plus the forms look pretty cool hehe

Sounds like Japanese weapons are the favorites overall? No one's mentioned any of the chinese weapons or kali sticks and whatever else is out there that I haven't heard of
