yes I know I don't have some in there.
chinese sword for example. I can't beleive I forgot that. Of all the swords that should've been there, SWORD would've been a nice one, They won't let me edit the poll so just hit I forgot something really important
but I put in thirty choices, that should keep you happy

anyone who's seen my introduction knows That I'm probably gonna collect swords like old people collect teacups.
I like swords, They're an Art form. As are the other choices.
so choose your weapon. (I want to know what most people prefer. And I KNOW at least ONE person who has antlers)
What's your weapon
Multiple choices allowed

You don't necessarily have to HAVE the weapon yourself, nor actually have training for it.

Its spelt Shuriken, and you forgot flails although technically they can fit into chained weapons with a handle.

I've ticked the weapons I regularly train with, which covers most of the list.

The "other weapon" I now train with is the garrocha.

Technically its a cross between a lance and a spear but its over 4m long so really it needs its own category in my opinion as it behaves slightly differently to both due to its length and how we use it.

Should be an interesting poll.

Sounds fun Reiki. We used to do some naginata vs. sword or naginata vs naginata stuff in the kenjutsu classes. Drills and techique with wooden and then battodo with foamflex weapons. It was interesting and crazy fun. If we had enough in class we even did a few 4 on 4 or 5 on 5 "battles" at a full charge. I know, silly martial games. But it was alot safer than when we were doing kendo sparring sans protective gear.

I train with a Iaito(dull katana) and a Jo which is a staff. Plus a bokken which is covered by other. As well as my collection of Tanto-point knives.

oak bo, heavy steel bo, 2 fighting knives with a half/false reverse edge (love the flexibility of not needing to turn the blade over to reverse a cut),escrima style sticks.

NO PROPER TRAINING So won't be entering any competitions anytime soon. Done these weapons for about 15 years.

I have a Crossbow, and a katana. I cant use a normal bow because I am so innaccurate with them. I like Crossbows because they are kind of like rifles, also because of the way you hold them I am alot more accurate with them.
Before christmas I spent an entire day in the snow with my crossbow, increasing my accuracy. Great fun.
If youre thinking of getting a Crossbow, get one of those kiddy "training" ones. They are rather accurate and are fun, also that'll give you some idea of whether it feels good for you or not. Because when it comes to crossbows quality is expensive.
