Can we have a weapons thread?

I like both the curved sword and the straight sword, but the staff and guan dao are my favorite weapons. What are your favorite weapons?

Also, straight or curved sword? Which do you prefer?

Sword and shield. It just not viable to not have a shield in combat.

The recoil is gone after you mastered control. It take a special type of person to master completely.

Staff fag myself. No particular style, just playing with it to know the angles and possible ways to strike.

Gonna learn this soon though

For swords, I prefer the sexy curves of the yan-mao dao and naginata/nagamaki. But jian forms are pretty too.
But I also really like the crossguard techniques of the European longsword to hook and bind the opponent.
Also the powerful forward curve of blades like the kukri and kopis.

The Meteor Hammer is the most fun to play with.
But the staff has to be my favorite for its speed and utility.

I'd really like to learn the chain or rope or something too, just cause the idea of hog-tying your opponent in combat is cool.

Is there any reason not to have a guard on your sword?

Why not have the ability to punch your enemy and not break your hand?

I am in total agreement my friend... lifequest is learning all I can about wielding one.

Fencing, then Iaido, now Escrima, angling at learning Dao forms next as I search out more techniques that can be used with it.
