    I've used the Actionflex Eskrima stick - they are without doubt the best of the type I've ever seen - and certainly way out of the "$3 from the plumbing section" league.

    As soon as funds allow I'll be buying at least 4 pairs.

    Probably, but PVC across the shins makes such a cool noise ;)

    Speaking of the escrima stick, we use the foam padded ones for sparring. They ar8e great because they are padded but do not bend and retain the thickness and length of a regular stick.

    How is the chanbara stick any better????

    Chanbara was recently in a martial arts magazine i read, it sounded good...although it looked kind of funny all these grown ups posing with pieces of foam:D The magazine said that "chanbara" comes from the sounds of swords clashing or something :Alien:
