I have worked for over 20 yrs to hone the body with various martial arts. Everything else is just a useful tool. And I can't rely on tools that I may not have on hand. :wink:   8)

I think for me that it depends on the situation.

For example, in law enforcement situations, my preferred weapon is a collapsible ASP baton. There's nothing quite like being able to break a person's bones with a single strike.

In self defense situations, I would hope to have my folding knife on me.

In those hypothetical piratical situations, there's my belaying pin.

So, yeah, many situations, many weapons...

I like a dagger myself, especially hubby's skull dagger (named Demon) Razor sharp edge. Makes a lasting impression.

anything within reach, if it can be lifted it can be wielded

Although i prefer double swords, why carry a shield when you can use another weapon

Sabres, preferably with basket hilts for close quarter punching... Curved, single edged... but most swords will do... for medium/long distance, gimme my composite horse bow...

It it is for a stage combat situation or just pairing off with a few freinds my Rapier and dagger, cloak, or cane will work nicely.
Also there is something to be said in knowing how to weild the 9 ring broad sword  :D  but if I ever go slow motion double 40cal Glocks would do nicely  ::2guns::

Sweet! I'm trying to learn anything I possibly can and would appreciate any direction. I took Tae Kwon Do until I was halfway through it, but because of funding I had to stop. That was about 10 years ago. No formal training since then, but I've been trying to get books and videos to learn from. So far I've collected books on Jeet Kune Do, Aikido, Small-Circle Jujitsu, Ninjitsu (and other techniques used by the ninja), and Chi Kung. Videos I have are on Liu He Ba Fa (well, they don't teach really good; I just have to learn quickly through emulation of the form and then take it apart as I see fit...), Snake Fist (a little bit more in-depth, but still same company), Jeet Kune Do (not realistic. Instructor moves at half-speed, "agressor" moves at about 1/8 or so...), and an instructional video on how to use the Whip Chain I currently own.

BUT, now that I'm done with that, I wish to learn as much as I can, so I'm open for suggestions. Good training materials, schools in the Central Cali area (Lemoore is where I'm stationed), anything. Thanks for reading this. I know it was long, but apparently I'm a little more enthusiastic than I knew I already was...

Oh, yeah. Favorite weapon. I prefer the Pudao from what I've seen. I haven't used it, but I've used swords and wished for the longer handle, or short staves and wished for a blade. The best of both worlds.

Just so you know what I'm talking about (not to mention a shameless plug for a business I use a lot):

Well I agree with the Body weapon POV, nothing like it *nods*

But if I had my way, it would be a Sword and dagger.

Of course haveing a loaded pistol behind my back (if not anouther dagger) just in case things don't go my way.  :D

My best friend is half-French, half-Canadian, and although he might not fight well, I'd like him at my side in battle. His yeti-ness has got to scare some people away... ::cwm6::
