This is a 10 part documentary -
Great old illustrations and cool insights into the reality based self protection ideas of the time. It's all interesting, but if you don't have the time, these 2 parts seemed most apropos to this forum.

I studied foil fencing a s a kid - parents took me after I kept stealing knives out of the drawers to play along with Errol Flynn movies and "The Flashing Blade" TV series (I'm dating myself now!)
Mostly I do the Filipino stuff which has a quite broad range of weaponry, many swords long and short, sticks and canes, and various nasty miscellaneous objects ...
I also recently started Toyama Ryu - The Japanese Naval Academy officers school style.
Love swords ..... and am eternally fascinated by how each design has a distinct personality and moves differently in space.
Was most interested to read Silver's comments on the staff - I love using the cane, so am now looking to further my study of that.
The Filipino philosophy is that the empty hand comes from the weapon work and I believe studying weapons can give great insights to anyone whether or not they are directly interested in the weapons themselves.
Me, I like the weapons Very Happy Cool cheers

Fantastic pic, does he take orders??? :-)

I'll try to get a shot of some of my swords, you'll like the difference, but also allot of similarities. Were are you based, and were do you train?

Do you mainly use one handed weapons or do you use bigger two handed as well?

I agree that weapons training helps with empty hand training too. But I too just like weapons, especially historical ones. I love finding out how they were actually used, and blowing away allot of the myths that have grown up around swords etc, both eastern and western.

McBane,
I live and train in the San Francisco Bay Area, and unfortunately the man who made these pieces passed away a couple years back - a real loss.
You are right, mostly single edged, single handed weapons, though not represented here is the double edged wavy blade, the Kris and the 2 handed Kampilan - also part of Filipino style edged weapons.
Obviously you can carry similar of different blades in each hand - epada y daga style.
Look forward to seeing your pics!
