    if my uncle send me some weapons such as this, and daggers, like 3 or 4

    is there be a problem with australian post office / police?

    OR where can i buy such weapons in australia? most martial arts supply places i seen have no good stuff if any just replica samurai sword and nunchaku....

    for people that train filo and indo art.. have u had a trouble with getting weapons for training or do u know supplier in australia

    we make do with machete and stuff form camping shop but its nice to have the "tools" of ur art if u know what i mean...

    or who should i ask about such matter... going to ask my post office lady on monday, but any advice helpful.

    thanking you~

    you might want to try calling up australian customs. i'm pretty sure that's the best authority on the import/export laws in your country. just a thought.

    Aussie customs are pretty rugged. A bunch of eskrimadors and jkd players from NZ went to Oz last year for the Inosanto seminars (amongt other stuff...) A couple of friends of mine got thier *wooden* training dagas confiscated out of their packed luggage (*not* carry-on) by customs, despite identifying themselves as martial artists, and having a bunch of training gear on-board (gloves, focus pads etc...) Didn't help they were heavily pierced and tattooed though...

    That same trip, I went to a bar in Sydney, and had to go through a metal detector. Probably not that uncommon in some countries, but quite unusual for a kiwi boy. (Didn't get my dulodulo though!)
