but with a weapon that can as easily bite you in the butt as that one it matters. Maybe I am projecting here but I remember when I tried to "go fast" before my time with baston in my Kali training. I wacked my "funny bone" more than once doing sinawali in that time period.
edit: I am also looking at the weapon as being an Asian variation of the European flail which we know was a practical combat weapon. Here is a video with some light sparring involving a type of European flail. If I remember rightly (someone correct me if I am wrong) this would be considered a "peasant" flail.
You said you wanted a weapon you could carry. I don't see that here. You said you were interested in locks not striking, but you've posted only videos of striking.
What exactly are you seeking?
