In Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, there are quite a few black belt techniques in which you take your belt off and use it to block punches, throw people and choke them out and lots of really cool stuff. I was thinking if you have like a thin overthrow on (like one of those checkered shirts that chollo's wear--hee sorry) you could take that off and use it as a weapon.

Or you could just use your Force powers and choke your attacker out from across the room! *Darth Vadar respirator sounds
poooo hheeee pooooo heeeeee*

A wrestler I knew in Scotland got into a fight with a guy who had a knife. He ended up clouting the guy with a didgeridoo. As he described it, "I didgeridi-done him!"

Reading further back in the thread, I note the cat idea. I seem to recall seeing a film where someone just threw a cat at someone. As the cat was pretty peeved it was in claws-out mode on contact.

On a more realistic note, there is a martial artist in UK, Brian Dossett of Spirit Combat, who apparently once divised a kata based on a large garden fork (I stand to be corrected)which he had once used as an improvised weapon when attacked by a gang. He is also responsible for starting something called Viking Combat, a system using shields and sticks. The idea came to him after having to use a dustbin lid and a lump of wood in a defence situation.

(Please note these are the details I have read. I have no contact with SC and have never trained in it, so I have no axe to grind. If anyone can correct me then please do)

Oh, and one for the ladies... a stilletto heel.

chairs-i think its quite obvious how it would be used, smashed over the head or thrown.

table-quite versatile, you can either break a leg off (if its wooden and you're strong enough) and use it as a club, or smack someones head down on it.

wall or window- simple really, just push someones head into it.

Now that I would use like a tinbe and rochin.
I see some interesting applications of the most diverse objects.
I guess kobudo skills do come in handy.

Even the computer's mouse as a nunchaku or surujin was mentioned.
(Damn, I have an cordless/optical mouse...)

I once threatened someone with my clog. (Wonder why nobody has already mentioned this. )
First he was surprised even to see such shoes nowadays in the Netherlands.

Hi all, just thought wen walking down the street and cornered the only thigs to hand may will be on your person keys are the obvious one, but i would definately recommend a belt ......
can b used as a flail, wrapped round fist and choke holds and from a legal standpoint it would not b unusual to have one on you,

p.s i have a hamster ,wonder if would do as much damage as a goat.

A thick sweater wrapped around the front hand/forearm can be used as a shield to block knife swings/stabs, as can shoes on the hand

Nunchucks are deadly and fast, but if you grabs a trash can, hold it horizontally a hand on both ends, you can use that as a simultaneous shield and battter-style weapon
It's "sloppy" but it works, nunchucks weren't designed to handle that.
