    As for cool weapons, this one is pretty cool, the atlatl or spear-thrower:
    Nice. They are trying to legalize hunting with atlatl somewhere around where I live. It is supposed to be bloody difficult.

    But for weapons I prefer:

    Trebuchets are powered by a counterweight using utilizing gravity to propel the missile. Catapults use elastic energy to propel the missile

    Trebuchets also tended to be much more powerful, with longer a longer range to boot.

    Didn't the Viet Cong use these in Vietnam? Or was that just sharpened bamboo? Either way, the premise is kind of the same.

    Basically. There Kata are like TKD kata rather then Japanese Two person forms. There is a good amount of spinning the sword, and spinning with the body, which is ****. They never go for the hands/wrists and have no idea how to defend against it.

    Fast foward through the first part (unless you want to see some really crappy grappling my part, I for some reason couldn't sink the back mount). The second part is me vs a Kumdo Instructor. See Kumdo in action! The third part is me vs. DerAuslander with swords, you will have to ask him his style of sword.

    YES WE ARE LARPING, CRY ME A FUCKING RIVER INFIDELS!

    This seems slightly less useful than nunchucks.



    Also, chain whips come to mind.

    I've seen something similar, except it had claws a la Wolverine. I would think if you hit anything harder than a pillow with those things, you'd jack your hand up all to hell.

    Nah, not if you consider that many of them were fishermen. It'd be right there for them to use.
