Yeah well i just got into black patch (dont know if you have that) but im starting general weapons training. Bo staff, sais, nunchucks, sticks, bokken?? (wood sword), tonfas and like mini grim reaper schythe things. Still no improvised weapons yet. (which mind you im not particularly interested in ) so yeah.




Black patch? is this your version of 1st kyu [one level below Shodan] or is it something else?

Bokken is correct, it is a replica of the katana in wood normally a hardwood like white oak.

It generally goes hand in hand with the jo which is the shorter staff that is approx solar plexus height [varies from Ryu to Ryu]

"mini grim reaper schythe things" these are called Kama.

I hate to tell you this but that sounds more like XMA than anything else. It's fine for others but my personal opinion is it's pointless and has no place near and art like Shotokan.

I agree, XMA is more of a performance art than martial art. Sorry to be off topic.
