MARTIAL ARTS WEAPONS
A variety of weapons are used in martial arts, depending on the discipline you wish to learn. It's always better to practice with a soft weapon to train with first, such as foam nunchaku, or in the instance where the real weapon would be dangerous, such as a knife in which you would use a rubber practice knife instead. Escrima sticks and aluminium training knives are weapons used in the Filippino martial art, Kali, with the rubber training knife also useful for defence and disarment techniques in Japanese Ju Jitsu and Krav Maga. Nunchaku are a great martial arts weapon to use for a beginner, though it is recommended to first learn with foam nunchucks before progressing to the wooden nunchaku. Wooden tonfa have also gaining popularity in the last year due to Silat star Iko Uwais performing some great tonfa techniques in hit action movie, The Raid.
