    Bullwhip, the ultimate flexible weapon?

    This looks like a bunch of bullshit to me, as the whip doesn't have stopping power, is not a piercing weapon and looks like you can close range easily on the person using it. But I have next to no experience with weapons, so I could be wrong. Anyone have a more experienced opinion?

    http://www.blackbeltmag.com/daily/ma...ony-de-longis/

    As featured in the December 2008 issue of Black Belt, Anthony De Longis shows you how the bullwhip can be a most versatile weapon. Anthony De Longis has studied traditional armed combat for 35 years, and his fighting style has been shaped by decades of training with fencing maestro Ralph Faulkner and jeet kune do/weapons expert Dan Inosanto. Anthony De Longis is primarily known—and sought out—for his skill with the sword and whip, and he continues to study fencing, the Japanese sword arts and a variety of other systems.

    What do you mean by "stopping power"? I'm pretty sure just about anyone would be stopped cold if they got hit in the eye with a bullwhip.

    In general, in my opinion at least, avoid reading black belt mag.

    And as to the question, a look into history.

    When was the bullwhip a popular weapon, and when?
    And did its user(s) win many fights and battles?
    Are there any famous bullwhip fighters, in classic literature, art, whatever?

    Like, whatever that fight choreograph (because that's what de Longis is, and not a bad one, by no means) has to say, you can be pretty sure that historical generations and generations of real warriors have tested.

    His program might be fun, but there are no bullwhips in Sparta.
    Except for real bulls.
    And helots, I presume.

    Though to be fair, they only used the bullwhip until they were able to upgrade it to the superior chain whip, so I guess that should hold the title of "Ultimate flexible weapon."
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    I stand corrected. I remember hearing stories about them when I was younger.

    I think your style field is incorrect.

    I have to agree with Hiro. Black Belt Magazine should be avoided. No, I don't think the Bullwhip is a good weapon.

    Needless to say, I always think the villain is way cooler than the hero.


    ...And in this specific case, I think I might be right.

    X2 and if you do happen to have the print version, note that usually when they feature some cocamame rubbish such as this, there is generally a full-page advertisement touting a product that the featured artist either sells or endorses. This has been a pattern of Black Belt Magazine for quite a while now. They aren't exactly consumer reports.

    Are they using it combination with a studded paddle and slave collar? I believe that will then make it more effective... Well unless they go full Gimp...
