    "**** that looks fun" weapons:

    rope dart, hook swords, chain whip, and maybe a monk spade (just so I can say "Eat monk spade!" before striking).

    I like the beggar's cane (about 4 foot long) and short sticks as practical weapons. I personally think the broadsword, sai, tiger fork, and rake are the most fun weapons to practice.

    For fun and to impress chicks...

    those big shiny meteor hammer thingies.

    anyone know the history on those things?

    applications would be simple:

    BSMHT's vs. right punch = bash it

    BSMHT's vs. right kick = bash it

    BSMHT's vs. choke = bash him


    OMG, if simplicity is the key then these things are.....

    no honestly mate

    as i say i have never really tried any other weapons but i really enjoy messing around with them. I never take a weapon out with me so if i was attacked and felt i needed one i would have to use whatever came to hand.

    i just looked at my last post and i am down as a junior i must have f***ed up when i sign up.

    oh well.

    My favorite is definitely the whip chain. I'm really only very skilled at the staff/spear and straight sword, but I love the whip chain. About a year ago I was visiting with Mr. Wong while on a mutual visit to Seattle. The family he was staying with had a daughter (about 10 years old) who was amazing with a whip chain.

    Prior to that visit, I had only seen it used for modern wu shu performances. While this is a beautiful display in itself, it tends to lack a real tangible martial aspect. This girl could whip that weapon around, switching up tempo and direction at will. She had tacked a number of 3" margarine tub lids to a board and painted little designs on them. Swinging the chain full-speed, and without missing a beat, she could shoot it out and hit any lid she called without touching the others.

    Well, watching her pretty much inspired me to take up that weapon. I saw its practicality for the first time. Granted, it is not analogous to many improvised weapons, nor am I likely to be attacked by ninjas who might accidentally drop one for me to use. However, I still practice its martial applications and treat it as a weapon.

    My biggest problem is that I have no one locally who can teach me this weapon. So, I am learning largely by trial and error. I fortunately have a solid kung fu and weapons foundation, but it still would be much better to find a good instructor. I now have students asking me if I will teach them the whip chain. I tell them to ask me again in a few years.

    My posting policy: I have been around and paid my dues. I do not post anything which I am not reasonably certain is true. I use my real name and location, and lay it on the line for all to see. Take my advice or don't take my advice. Learn from my post or don't learn from my post. It matters not to me, but it is there free for anyone that wants it. Just don't ask me to qualify every statement I make, because I will not respond. This is a fruitless exercise.

    Brent, don't you think there is some crossover of the whip chain
    to your belt (the one you wear with pants).

    I too agree the the nunchaku is a great weapon.
    Small, powerful, effective against most other weapons with the
    proper training.

    Could a shovel or something be a real life substitute for the monk spade?
