Alrighty Im a major fan of sai

And im not trying to toot my own horn but im rather decent at them to...I basically watched DareDevil and Elektra in slow motion to see how Jen Garner did the moves

But now that I learned all the moves that she did,I dont know anymore, does anyone know any good site where I can see like some sort of hardcore Sai video?

I didn't see either movie, but I thought I saw, in a tv preview, Garner holding the sai by the handle with her index fingers wrapped around one of the guards. That is a major error in at least two important styles. I can't say no one credible does that. I just don't know any that do.

And since the guards are to catch and pin other weapons (swords, bos, etc), having a finger on the inside could quickly make the 10 base number system a problem for folks that do it that way.

To learn this weapon, look for a karate school in your area that teaches OKINAWAN weapons.

Please read the sticky post at the top of the forum.

All weapons are best learnt when under the watchful eye of an instructor. Not from watching a movie.
