    Hell man, when I was out buying a new sports bag, I had to tell a security guard my Kali sticks (had to make sure they fit) were "Native Philipino Art" just to get through the mall.

    It's illegal to carry them in Canada under the same law that prohibits the 'chucks because they are purpose built as a weapon. The fact that I could hurt someone just as badly with a car antenna seems to have escaped notice.

    I practice Korindo Aikido and our practice includes most of the Koryu weapons. I have already practiced to some extent the following weapons:
    Ken, Kodachi (short sword)), Nito (2 swords),Tanto, Jo, Bo, Hami-Bo (SanShakuBo - 90cm stick, Naginata.
    We also have in our curriculum some weapons I have yet to learn, such as Ksari-Gama and a few others (don't recall them right now).

    The basic practice of each weapon includes:
    Kihon, Basic paired drills (or simple one time Kata), Kata (Either specific to Korindo Aikido or from one of the Koryu styles it's based on) and Randori (free play, with no sheilds of any sort).

    As can be seen, it is a very wide curriculum, and nobody isn't supposed to know it all (even Korindo Aikido founder - Minorou Hirai didn't know them all). Personaly, the only weapon I feel somewhat proficient with is the Jo. As far as all other weapons, I am just a beginner,regardless of the time I have already learnt them.

    i think it's ridiculous that some hand carried weapons are outlawed and gun control is the way it is in the US. i don't know about canada.

    anyway, i use shinai and bokken in kendo training (bamboo and wooden sword, respectively), iaito (japanese sword construction but unsharpened metal) for iaido practice, and tried european fencing a few times. nothing you would use on the street though, unless you lived a couple hundred years ago.

    I train medieval longsword according to the ARMA method (www.thearma.org), mostly using Talhoffer as my primary source. Good stuff. It includes some grappling too.

    Lemme tell ya, Jenn.....

    Canada's firearms legislation suck. And they're only gonna get worse. And this is coming straight from a Canadian.

    To me, gun control means using both hands. That's it.

    in Mass. i can get a permit to carry concealed, but can't carry a staff, nunchucks (not that i would), and knives?....forget about knives...

    When was the last time there was a drive by staffing?

    When you say you train with weapons, do you mean forms or actually sparring.

    Without sparring in those weapons, the forms are useless.

    I've trained in basically, the gamut of martial arts weapons. Nunchaku, Tonfa, Sai, Shuriken, Kusarigama, Kusarifundo, Kyoketsu Shoge, Daito, Shoto, Tanto, Bo/Jo/Hanbo, Guan dao, Pu dao, 7 and 9 link whip chain (though I never much liked those things), Gim, Dao, as well as firearm training.

    They're all good to learn, they can show you unarmed techniques, in a new light. And well...the gun training is just for fun really.

    At least as far as me:
    We have light sparring in our system even with weapons, included un-matched weapons sparring (I have tried the one with Jo/Kodachi/Nito/Naginata another with Boken variations mostly).

    But the sparring must be done with lots of care, or else one would finish in the hospital very soon. We don't use any protection gear, and accidents do happen. I recall almost losing an eye in a sparring with my sensei except he held the strike in the last mm. My brother almost killed me entering with a boken to my throat in another fight, returning me a head strike I gave him a couple of years earlier. And the number of strikes on the wrists and fingers is uncountable.

    Even if you only Spar with wooden weapons, you shouldn't go full speed normally! the one exception is practicing against a much more experienced person telling you otherwise !
