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.

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.

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

Don't waste time with the "this weapon is no match for this weapon" argument. That's one thing that made the Discovery Chanell XMA documentary quite bad; its elementary. Also, I don't think a weapons sparring division, chanbara or otherwise, gauges the effectiveness of a classical weapon.

I like a good solid Parker rollerball pen, preferably with a metal casing. Far more useful than a kubotan - at least you can write with it.

Nobody here thinks soft weapons (other than the nunchucks) are cool?

I remember when I got to see my cousin practicing the rope and dart when I was younger... to date I still think that's one of the coolest looking weapons around. The whipchain's an interesting weapon as well.

as weapons goes, the beretta 92FS in chrome is soooo beautiful hehe

but melee weapon I prefere medieval swords, they are just so manly, feels good to hold a 2handed sword that is 160cm(64inches) and weild it with one hand with out a problem
*grins*

then knuckle irons is a favorite, or a knuckle ring

if I had to choose a MA weapon it would prolly be the one that is a long stick and at the end of it there is a sword, wanted to buy for sometime now but the prices for nice looking ones goes for 600euro and up [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/frown.gif[/IMG]

after that I would choose Katana, as I am a sword freak it would be nice to have my in my collection, there are some swords that were taken from prisoners of WW2 that were sold on a swedish buy/sell sell sight, but fealt 500 euro was too much, which it is not, they are real katanas given to the higher ranks of the soldiers of japan

oh well there might be another chance to buy a real katana

or I will just have to be rich and buy one from those ppl that make them how, chen something I belive his name is, and the one I want goes for 5000euro [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

1, Beretta 92FS Chrome
2, Medieval Swords
3, Knuckle Iron(s)
4, Long stick and a sword at the end
5, The Katana

Wakasashi... I don't know why, i just like it more than any martial weapon i've ever used. A close second is a Clamore. You hold up whatever weapon you want and chances are i can smash through it with a Clamore. By saying this i'm not saying that its a better weapon than others i'm just saying its big, heavy and very deadly if you know what your doing.

whitedragon_48,

Perhaps you will get to go to Long Beach this year, and we will meet!

I did take a seminar with Mr. Tatum at last years' Internationals (just after Mr. Pick's seminar, actually) and found it very helpful. We were just working on techniques that different people were having trouble with, and when Mr. Tatum knew that "Circling Destruction" was a weak one for me, he called me to the front of the group and gave me about 5 minutes of one-on-one help. I felt very honored.

Ok seriously now, I like any kind of staff or bo. Its the kind of thing you can find everywhere and improvise, ie broom or pool que.
I dont think you should really carry weapons arond with you (esp knives and guns), just pick up and use whatevers around. I hear even throwing stuff can work too.

One last thing (I promise), recently I was at a kind of MA fair in the town where I live here in Japan. It showcased lots of Japanese arts. Anyway this one guy (not sure which art) was showing how an umbrella (ok laugh if you want) can be used as an effective self defense weapon on the street. Very interesting.

I would say firearms are an obvious martial arts weapon. Just look at Stephen Segal teaching pistol technique to law enforcement. If your sensei "doesn't believe in firearms" don't believe in him and send his wussy ass to France. HKG36C assault rifle with a 4.7mm UCP as a sidearm.
Morningstar for argument sake. I love mine, not a replica, forged steel handle with a 1 1/2"in steel ball on 6 1/2' of chain. Basically a Scotts version of a cycle and chain. Semper Fi

I would personally go for my good old, reliable bolt-action rifle, fitted with its usual scope and suppressor: sticks its bullets in a circle no bigger than a golf ball at fifty meters, and the noise can be reduced to merely the click from the mechanism, depending on what ammo I use. If you put aside the psychological trauma of feeling guilty for such a dishonorable kill, seeing your ennemies drop down one after the other without any of them being able to work out what is happening must be a rare and highly entertaining activity...

Hi, Liquid Rock! What exactly does this party-trick consist in? I'm quite fond of party-tricks myself... I know it's mere childish showing off and should no longer appeal me, but it's such fun... [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]
One of my favourite ones is throwing an apple in the air at an approximate height of two meters, watch it reach its apex in the most casual and innocent manner (as if I didn't plan to even catch it on its way back but rather let it fall on the ground), and as soon as it starts descending, unsheath a hidden dagger from under my clothes with the very hand which just threw the apple and slice it in the air before it touches the ground. The whole process lasts less than two seconds. Oh, and I usually perform an elegant bit of juggling with the dagger before sheathing it back and pulling my jumper back down over the scabbard, which gets me exactly to my very first, innocent-looking status. Great effect, enhanced by the fact that noone's aware that I'm carrying a dagger (usually my Cold Steel "oyabun" tanto) in the first place. It's not as difficult as it sounds... Would you mind giving the details of that trick of yours?

Heh, nothing so subtle as yours...

More just a demonstation of speed; toss some apples (or whatever) in the air, couple of spins and twists for flair and boom! some nicely chopped fruit.

It plays on the effect of moving quickly so the apple's fall is not affected by blade moving through it. The audiences sees a flash of steel and quiet suddenly the fruit is in two peices. I should get an actual routine though.

I like the idea of carrieing concealed weaponry and just non-chalantly pulling it out, totally punk! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

Yeah, it's extremely funny but I (almost) only do it at home, since the police, strangely enough, seems not to be too happy with people carrying weapons around... Still, I don't know about your government but if mine allowed me to carry my beloved tanto, I certaily would! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]
By the way, thanks a lot for answering! These axes sound like very pleasant weapons to handle. I might get myself one of them one these days...

As a base and practical weapon, a stick or olisi in cebuano. I have a nice heavy kamagong stick that I seldom train with, 'cause it's sooooo heavy, and training partners complain when I damage their sticks (or bones!). There's normally a stick-like object around.

For practical carry, a mini maglite, kubotan, badjak (or dulo dulo), or just a nice strong metal pen.

But my nicest toy would have to be my very sharp visayan kris...

Nunchaku. They are my favorite, and a lot of people underestimate their usefullness. I am not getting into "Nunchaku can beat Sais because" arguement. The people that take part in those stupid quarrels have the maturity level of an infant. *Cough* Hmm...anyway...Nunchaku for sure are my fave!

My favourite weapon in all forms but has very little menion is the scythe.
hands down the coolest weapon around.
as for a gun it would have to be a massive ass revolver.
outside the scythe i will say the hookswords.
so many possibilities!!!

I've actually become quite proficient with smaller throwing knives. I can stick a well balanced knife into a target rather well anywhere from 5-20 feet. After that any good hit would really be a lucky shot. Even taken time to learn drawing it from its sheath on my belt and throwing.

For what its worth, though, I wouldn't throw it without utter assurance of its actually landing. The person is unaware I'm behind them, for instance. Otherwise, it'd just turn into a big akward stabbing match... but I prefer that over throwing them a weapon and missing [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

my favorite weapon is the sword...
to be specific the giant blade(6ft long and weigh 70 pounds). And it's not a joke...

i'll say my favorite is double katana, or single but im quite efficient with both. honestly my setup if it came down to a large battle would be a nodachi and odachi in hand, great katana on lower back, katana on right hip, and katana and wakazashi on left hip. and do not think this is too much or that its stupid because it works quite well for me considering i've trained since i was 6

i'd have to say an apache longbow loaded up with about 116 unguided fear rockets

yeah point and click baby
jk

for real though I love the naginata and yari because fighting with a spear and fighting with a bo staff are not all that different and i think the bo is the best anti-sword weapon (aside from the firearm that is)

Trained in what? Care to explain how you would use a 67" odachi with one hand while sporting a kodachi with the other? How old are you?

i didn't say kodachi i said nodachi and odachi. those two are the longest japanese swords one used as a katana the other used to take out cavalry, kodachi in my opinion is useless to my way of fighting. before you ask another his age you might want to introduce yourself first and how you've been trained

My favourite weapon is the katana, I like it mainly because of the speed they can be moved at, like in iaidojutsu and battojustsu. Sadly I can't do these effectivly only kendo and kenjutsu really (and I can't do them very well either ^^) I also like tonfa, hand knives (or things similar) bo( or jo which ever's shorter I can never remember) and sai. My sister (who does TKD) likes nunchakus - she can't use them though lol!

sorry if im being brash but i don't like it when people come off as they're questioning me that way, especially by asking me how old i am thinking that if they might be older than i am that they might be correct, but i don't believe this is the case

Laf has to deal with a lot of stupid teenagers who come up with wacky ideas or are looking for the Kenshin art/sword. He simply would like to see your resume to make sure you're not a troll.

2 sticks, sais, or butterfly knives....2 wakizashi might work for me too, never tried though. (Took some arnis in high school)

loneswordsman,

I'll bite. I'm the moderator of 4 sections on this forum. One of them just happens to be the sword arts section. I've been training both empty hand and weapons for 23 years and have a good 10 years or so in the Japanese sword arts.

My questions again are...
1. What art/arts are you studying?
2. How old are you?
3. How do you use two swords that are both in excess of 67" at the same time while being strapped with four more swords?

well laf at least thats a bit more understandable, in any case i've trained with bare hand, blades and guns for over 10 years, i've studied many styles of swordplay including fencing and ancient japanese styles but i only read up on them and take what i like, i have my own style and for the most part you could say im self taught, and as far as swinging around two 67" swords with all the other stuff strapped on me, im not really sure how i do it, i guess its my build but i can do it fairly easily except when i just want to demonstrate, i don't bother with wearing all that for that because that would be disasterous, but i've been around with plenty of weapons to know what you can do with them

Jo and Bokken would have to be my faves- if frequency of training and grinning is anything to go by.
Baston are a hoot too!
