    You asked for it and you got it!

    Welcome to the new General Weapons Section of MartialTalk where you can discuss weapons other than edged or firearm. This is the place to discuss special natural weapons, traditional weaponry, etcetera.

    ENJOY!

    Not much action on this forum ...so here's something to think about, targeting with hand-held weapons other than firearms or projectile weapons.

    So with impact and bladed weapons, is it strategically better to target the weapon itself (i.e. "de-fanging the snake") or go to the core (i.e. shut down the fighter controlling the weapon). I Just began a thread on this down in the FMA forum, but it isn't really an FMA subject, but a general weapons topic. So regardless of your weapons background, feel free to scroll down to the FMA forum and post an opinion! :)

    Let me start the first weapon discussion.

    I learned this "劈手杆(Pi Shou Gan) - hand striking pole" when I was 11. This pole is so big in diameter that your hand cannot hold it completely. This way when your opponent's staff slides down along your pole, his staff cannot hit on your fingers. You hold on the 1/3 and 2/3 spots of the pole. You can hit your opponent with both ends. If you let go your left hand, your right hand holding pole can strike 2/3 pole length to your right. If you let go your right hand, your left hand holding pole can strike 2/3 pole length to your left.

    When I train, I use a copper pipe. I can close both ends and fill in with sand. This way, I can alter the amount of weight on that copper pipe for training.
