I don't have a weapon of choice per se, as we don't walk around armed where I am from.
But I've always liked a kukri knife, I don't know how practical they are in combat, or in general for that matter, but I like the look of them.
Otherwise, I'm a fan of the bokken.
My winning smile.Personally i like the bo staff, in the goju ryu class i go to its one of the weapons that is practiced, but I prefer that one because it gives reach and I've practiced with it enough to get an idea of what I'm doing or what I could do.
But I think my favorite weapons is the Liuyedao, I only practice one form for it(xing yi forn). I don't know which weapon i do better, I could imagine the bo staff because I practice several 1 person forms and 2 people sets.
So I'd guess my preferred weapon is the bo staff.
The reason for this thread is I'd like to hear other peoples preferred weapon choices
Okay, being a bit geeky here. Has anyone around here handled a prop replica Bat'leth?
Not really, but I have one of these stored away in the attic. It's not a true Bat'leth ofcourse as it curves the wrong way, but it is metal, and the pointy parts are wicked. Actually, I would considered this equally dangerous to anyone standing beside me or behind me, as to anyone standing in front of me, because of the pointy ends and weird shape. Got it stuck in a wall in the cellar by accident just after I got it, just by taking a practice swing.
