Hi all, I'm new here, and also new to karate. I've been training since November 2006. I recently went to a tournament just to see how things were done. One young guy performed a weapons kata with a rather odd looking weapon. Even my sensei had no clue what it was. In one hand, the guy held a short, thick stick. In the other, he held a flat metal thing with three sharp points. (This is somewhat hard to describe. lol.) Can anyone help me based on just this pathetic description? If not, I'll try to explain it better. Thanks!
