I am starting this thread to find out how many people know and or have ever heard of the Balisong.
Also to find out what people think of this fine fancy fun filled art. Most people think that you shouldnt do tricks with weapons but with that said then these people have surely never heard of or seen anyone use or practice with a Balisong, a.k.a Butterfly Knife.
This art is a very fun filled art. The entirety of it is based on tricks that you can do with this blade in order to wow your opponent into thinking that you are dangerous with said blade or to improve blade fighting techniques. I have been studying this art for 14 years now and I am only 21. I got introduced into the art at the same time I was introduced into Tae Kwon Do.
Just looking for some opinions on an art that is fun and not very difficult to learn.
