If you mean can you practicaly use ancient weapons outside of practice and sparing then i have to say sorry but most of these weapons just aren't practical as tools to do harm or kill anyone in this day and age.

thats the whole point of it.

you don't apply the techniques - they are irrelevant to the modern day world.

your never going to use a katana unless you're basically insane, the only way to use a tonfa is to join the police, the only way to use a bo/jo is using a broom handle to attck someone and the only way to use sai would be to dress up as one of the teenage mutant ninja turtles.

its what you take from the training spiritually and physicially that counts.

(and the teenage ninja turtles comment applys to all the weapons i mentioned. . . apart form the tonfa)

I used a katana to defend my home earlier this month from an invader.

The movements of a katana could be applied to any long stick or long flat object (fairly common to find). 2 by 4's, metal siding, etc. Baseball bats, golf clubs, etc. Those things lack the kind of shape to be used as a bo but could be thrust into the role of sword without much effort.

Small hand weapons are excellent to train in. Pens can be found everywhere.
