It may be a cliche, but I like it anyway: the pen is mightier than the sword.

It can cut, has a point, and is extremely versatile...depending on the skill of the one who wields it.

But since I'm not a writer or a politician, and prefer to avoid the title of 'armchair warrior', I'd choose a bo. I do like a nice piece of hickory.

What if there was a sword that had a built in retractable pen that can come out of the handle?
Perfect weapon:
It has both the words and the action to back up the words

I like nunchakus and the bo staff. Nunchakus can be used to block, attack and strangle. The bo staff has good range and are quite powerful once you hit the target, like the nunchakus. The downside with nunchakus is that they aren't that userfriendly if you don't have wery much experience.....
(getting one of those in the head is ouch...)

hence why I suggest wearing a hard helmet when starting out with nunchaku before you learn how to make them go dead properly...

Iv'e always liked the Tessen. I have no idea how to use it though, aside from smacking someone over the head with it.
Umbrella is good too. A nice strong one, that is..

Other than this I would carry a short sword/knife with me wrapped in cloth so if ever the going got tough I could just commit harakiri.

But in a perfect world every body would carry a daisho and duels to the death would be a daily occurring thing..

P.S a loyal rottwieller or alsation is good to walk with. I know it's not so much of a MA weapon. But good protection none the less.

Short sword. Wakizashi or similar sized curved weapon. In a pinch a tanto. I carry a hissatsu knife for SD which is based off a tanto design.

Longer the better though. Longer than a bad guy can reach and you can always throw it into his neck or chest if you need him to go away more quickly from a distance.

Are we speaking of a martial arts weapon for real, everyday self defense?

Simple. Glock 9mm. Not a traditional weapon to be sure, although it does have a distinct martial history.

So are we really talking about defensive weapons or just really cool [censored] we learned to use in the dojo and think it would be great on the street.

I see hundreds and hundreds of people walking down the streets of various cities everyday. Don't ever see any carrying nunchaku or bo, or katana or escrima sticks.

When was the last time you went to a bar or club and were carrying your stick or cane? Let alone nunchaku

i have a few weapons i like but my favotires are shurikens and a naginata, but l'd prefer just using my hands, i can use my hands easier than any weapon.
power is important but knowledge of how to use it is a necessity.

Mine would probably be the Japanese Katana and wakizashi, this is because im most prepared to defend myself with them.
Im a fighter...
