What's your preferred weapon? Mine is the Bo Staff.
At this point, I am working my bo staff quite extensively. I have decided that I like the weapon and am attempting to learn to use it more effectively. There are a couple of interesting books that are on my shopping list; one of which goes into the history of the Quarterstaff ... which is a European version of the big long stick.
I received a nice bo staff for Christmas from one of the online martial arts outfitters. But, then I searched a bit more, and found this ...
Mark Taylor built me a beautiful 6'6" bostaff made of bloodwood and wenge. It's a heafty bo, weighing in at 3 pounds 7 ounces. I am considering adding to my collection from Mr. Taylor as well.
My preferred weapon is that of an escrima stick- they are cheap, easily hidden, useful( to prop open windows) not likely to be used by a 10 year old to kill his brother, and they are not illegal to own. Tho if you have one on the front seat of your car and get stopped- expect to be looking down the barrel of a 9 mm while the cop asks for your ID.
