I havent had any formal training with them yet, which vindicates the fact that i seem to hit myself in the nuts every time i try to swing them around.
HoneyBadger, I just read through that specific part you quoted...and realized that it works on more than the level I intended. respect for sigging it :P
For fun...chinese long spear
For practicality...broken beer bottle and a loogie (my mother told me "now you are a black belt...now you can spit in the face THEN kick them in the balls)
At the end of the day, which weapon do you like to train with the most. Staff? Sword? Three-piece-rod?
The singlestick--a 3-foot (give or take) ash dowel fitted with a hardened leather basket-hilt. It was essentially a "bokken" for the Anglo-Scottish basket-hilted broadsword & backsword, and was later used as a training tool for other cut-and-thrust swords (various navies, for example, used it for cutlass practice).
James Figg, the first modern heavyweight boxing champion, was also a champion singlestick player.
The staff is fun to play around with, and will take out most other hand weapons 8 or 9 times out of 10 (exceptions to this would be any light-bladed polearms, like the simple spear or the "Welsh hook"--aka forest bill--mentioned by the Elizabethan swordsman, George Silver).
I used to have a number of swords. Got rid of them when I grew up and learned that stainless steel doesn't make good swords. All I have now is a hardwood bokken and a compound bow.
Prefered weapon: an M16.

An Army of angry midgets
Useless against a lion.
My weapon of choice.
Is the handle short, or is the rest of the gun that big?

But they are still hella cool. But only if a) you have the dirty harry suit and can say 'do ya feel lucky, punk?" like a badass or b) you can recite SLJ's Ezekiel 25:17 speech verbatim.
Glock 19 9PB, HK USPc 45ACP or CZ 75B

Guns are without honor!
"Good, bad....I'm the one with the gun...."
Nunchaku has to be my favourite weapon. Fun, effective in self defense, and not as difficult or dangerous to use as they look. And they look cool.
