the staff is atually my favorite weapon even though i dont know how to properly use it.

i liek it becuase it has range and can be used against multiple oppenents and has two ends so u can kinda attack from two sides.


i liek rattans taffs becuase they are thin, light weight, and easy to wield, but i think they are juss for training?

i can't stand it...not really my kinda weapon..sure i know that if u can handle a staff well u can use ANY weapon..i know this..but..it's just not my style..and i think that mental block is preventing me from even tryin 2 better myself with it...i don't really like weapons that requires me 2 use both hands for it(unless it's a pair)...i prefer to hold one in each hand...rather than on in both hands..think about it..can a bo staff really strike in two completely different directions simultaneously??...that's y i love ecrimas...good enuff length and easy 2 manage

Oh yeah. I like the chain whip a lot! I like how it can be used in close and at a distance. Hooking swords are the only weapon I ever put into my hands that just felt like they belong there. The only problem with them is not to practical to carry around. To me the hooking swords are a utility weapon so many ways to strike with them.

As far as which ones i really like and think that they are cool: katanas, tai chi sword, tonfa, bo staff and jo staff. even though i dont know how to fight with most of those weapons.

as far as carrying one around goes: Tec-9s! i dont go anywhere without these babies! i make a living off of these two! As soon as i walk up to you with my ski mask on and my tec-9s out, you better have a full wallet 'fo i cap yo a$$ punk!
(joking aside, i would NEVER waste valuable bullets like that!)

yeah...tonfa's are good..i've seen some ppl do some really cool stuff with it..i'm yet 2 try that weapon but i know i will!, it looks a lil weird..but once i can come up with some advantages of its use..i will,
argg..all u ppl and ur love for the bo-staff...i'm jealous...seems like if i'm the only person who can't operate it well..but i was told my some ppl that if i can't spin a bo-staff it'll be hard for me to do other weapons...boy were they wrong..i know that the staff is consider the "all round weapon" and that it's a true beginners but great for experts and so on..but...i just don't think it's my thing....
right now i'm gonna try my skill at the chuks ..see how well i can do at that..seems i have the ecrimas down good...soo...nunchuks it is(for now atleast)
