    How do these exotic woods stand up to impact with other wooden weapons?

    I know its very hard and stiff, which IMO isn't great for contact drills. Very hard woods can crack and shatter in ways that rattan won't. Kamagong, for example, is a very hard and stiff wood but in the old Stockton FMA tournaments, they used kamagongs so they could act like a bunch of tough guys, and they were breaking left and right.

    Purpleheart should not crack or shatter anything but bone and most other types of wood.

    It is practically unique in its density and structure, literally about 50% stronger than oak, and denser than almost any wood on Earth. A staff made of peltogyne heartwood will absorb a lot of shock from other weapons, even metal ones. Of course that depends on the thickness, the quality and origin of the heartwood used, etc.

    Sadly, it is a rainforest wood meaning it is quite rare and rather endangered..which is why I have bought it from Dale already, so it can have a home with someone who knows its worth...took some explaining to the wife why I was buying a stick from a guy online. I explained it is a REALLY NICE STICK and that the seller is a southern mantis master and acupuncture guru from Beantown, and I think that worked..she rolled her eyes and said "go ahead".

    If you want to meet up and have a stick fight with me and my purpleheart jo, you are 100% welcome to try and take it from my cold dead hands!

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Has there been one within 200 miles? No.

    Although I'm definitely considering a retreat at Auslander's if I can ever get it on my itinerary.

    I train Tang Fong Hung Ga and a little cross training at a boxing gym in NJ. Believe it or not, Gerry Cooney drops in there occasionally to train and he lives just down the road a bit.
