BuDoc...
Wow! Necesity IS the mother of invention.

Now I'm wondering why this thread has been edited SO many times?

Several years ago a colleague (who had an attitude) got jumped by an inmate weilding the popular sock-full-o-soap. He was beaten so badley he incurred brain damage.

I know that many objects can be used as projectiles, striking weapons & cutting/puncturing weapons and all one needs to do is look around & use his imagination. From my seat I see CD's that when broken can become a knife, ruler, pens, paperweight & flashlight to name a few (not to mention my work knife in my pocket).

The reason I decided to post this topic is just to have the members remind eachother that although we tarin in empty-hand skills, there's nothing wrong w/ using an improvised weapon to increase your odds.

But the key word is "improvised". If you go into a situation w/ an "imporvised" weapon already prepared, you've demonstrated Intent (like the inmate above) & will probably be prosecuted for ADW (Assault w/ a Deadly Weapon).

(I'll apologize first)

A boot in a pillow case @ BOOT camp?

What would they have used @ cheerleader camp?

OK, serious again...

Don't ask about the editing, you don't need to know.

IMHO Cats could make excellent weapons for sparring.
I can think of nothing better than having a couple of cats strapped on my fists with the sharp bits pointing outwards. Plus you can use them as a bo or a flail for more "interesting" training.

I've never really had to use a weapon, so I cant say what would definately work... I'll have a crack anywhat.

Obvious

Keys
Pens
Pool Cue
Bottle
Ash Tray

Not so obvious

Jacket (strangling, blocking, distraction)
Aerosol (spray in the eyes, combine with a lighter? lol)
Rocks/Tiles (throwing , possibly used as stabbing weapon.. tiles are sharp)
Sand/dirt (distraction)
.357 Revolver (uses atm unknown, will continue to think )

I've also wondered about the use of yelling. Like, screaming something just plain weird at the top of your lungs to confuse your attacker and possibly put them off? ( Yes, I'm aware it is not a weapon, but please bare with me)

Attacker: You made me spill my drink, what the hell?
(attacker shoves defender to provoke violent reaction)
Defender: MY LEFT LEG IS ON FIRE, PLEASE PUT SOME ICE CREAM ON IT BECAUSE I AM THE KING OF LEMON PEPPERED CHICKEN!!!
Attacker: Ahh, okayy ... get away from me..

Situation difused

...I don't need to know?

Sounds sinister.

Is there a conspiracy?

You can check out that goat kata on my Goat Fu website.

I am quitting Shorin Ryu, and developing a fighting style based entirely on the use of barnyard animals as weapons.

Forget what you know about white crane. The new rage in martial arts is Red Chicken

Makes me think of the fight with the MA Cow in Kung Pow. Talk about 'mad cow' desease!

Does your new MA system give an element of suprise? After all i should think you could be a wolf in sheeps clothing when it is mastered
