    Because as it turns out, kung fu is still way more interesting than anything on Expert Village.

    The upside of training with 1000+ year old weapons is exposure to something old, exotic, and just different. As someone else pointed out practicality is not necessarily a reason we train with CMA weapons, but that doesn't mean each doesn't have its place.

    The downside is it's a rare 1000 year old weapon for a reason. I doubt very many people were able to ever master/use it effectively (doesn't mean there weren't some 3 sectional staff killers, though...)

    I liked Gene's assertion that the weapon is basically designed to hurt you if you aren't careful with it, but it won't, say, take off a finger or anything. A weapon that says "hey idiot, stop swinging me like a fool".

    Go look for Omega's staff demo (sorry I'm too lazy atm)...it's hard for even the biggest skeptic to deny/critique that sort of agility when you see it first hand. And throw away the weapon...that agility and strength is still there in your hands.

    It's the Riddle of Steel and all that...it's not the weapon that makes the hand stronger, it's the hand that makes the weapon strong.

    And he didn't just pick that **** up anywhere. He spent time at it to the point where it seems as easy as a child twirling a toy, but you would not want to meet the business end of the weapon.

    Learning to wield a heavy weapon seemed so unnatural for me at first it's still hard to imagine getting to a point where the weapon and you are really one continuous thing (I certainly don't have that kind of skill, but there is plenty of video evidence of those who do).

    Indeed.

    Once upon a time, let's say around 10 or so years ago, still training in Aikido, not yet a student of Judo - I used to think that CMA weapons training was THE ****.

    Today - I still think CMA weapons training is the ****, but for a very different reason, and it's entirely related to Wrabbits last post.

    Trivia: a long long time ago, I uploaded a video of myself swinging Nunchaku like a beast to the bullshido archive. Extra points if you can find the video.

    The reason I still like CMA weapons training, is exactly that - for the TRAINING.
    Although it can be argued that certain weapons (ie Nunchaku) have potential to literally wear out your joints, the benefits of said training (increases in dexterity, agility, and muscular endurance) are difficult to dispute.

    You know that Christian krotty school is in NC? I've wanted to take a trip out there just to see the madness in person, but I know with my luck I'll do the 1.5 hour drive and nothing batshit insane will be going on that day.
    Where is it?
    I'm in church central here, maybe it's nearby? I'll find out if God hates me enough to let one of these guys choke me out.

    I'm thinking of doing my own thing. I'll call it "expert basement." It will involve Ninjutsu and MMA. Also, possibly a bong and D&D.

    I'll be your co-host, but only if there's a sweet metal solo for the intro. Party on.

    You'll get a lot of comments from amateur home rebuilders looking for hints on installing drywall and sump pumps.

    the rabbit and i share lineage and our pole form is the one in that movie, so don't be surprised.

    for the record, IIF is far more of a kung fu movie nerd than i am. FAR more.

    Throw in some fetish porn, and I think I can get you financial backing.
