    For me - throwing knife. It seems a low percentage of times it would really hit. Even a humble slingshot would probably be a better distance weapon. I used to try knife throwing all the time as a kid - it was fun to dork around with, but seems a bad use of a knife really.

    Because of this, I just don't like them as weapons (even though I own one). Pretty much anything, no matter how odd is cooler. Even something like the wooden bench some kung fu schools use is a lot cooler. Come to think of it, the wooden bench IS pretty cool...

    I don't really like nunchaku, I feel like they are unwieldy and flashy.

    I don't like the flying star. It's too easy to get tagnled with your opponent's sword.

    Õtsuchi, I can't imagine a more ungainly weapon.

    I'm sure I could run off a list of really obscure weapons that I haven't tried. But the bog standard staff, I don't like much. I find it unwieldy. For ME, obviously. There are plenty of people out there who are dynamite with a staff. Me, I'm a danger to myself alone.

    I kinda hit myself in the eye with a palm stick the other day. I had my hand in the position as if I was going to do a number two strike (high diagonal back hand). My instructor hit my elbow (lightly) and my arm bounced back and *poke*. Oh, how we laughed!!!

    Least favourite weapon...maybe 2 handed swords. Not had a lot of experience with them, but didn't like them when I did Ninja stuff years ago. It just seems a waste of a hand.

    I am not a big fan of the machete crossbow myself.

    I don't have a least favourite weapon, though I didn't enjoy the little bit of Jodo I did. Strangely enough, I really enjoy Shillelagh.

    I'm happy enough with whatever force multiplier I have the fortune of studying.

    How about the lance? Only for the fact that I don't care for horses.

    Best regards,

    Kung Fu/Fighting fans. What a ridiculous weapon.

    What is wrong with you????? That is the most awesome thing I have EVER seen and Jorg is my new hero.

    It was a useful skill in China where people carried fans a lot. If you've ever seen any of those RBSD courses that teach you bad Kali dagger work with a cellphone, it's much the same.

    I would have to say my own body, especially if the other guy has a weapon that isn't his own flailing limbs.

    I would have to say Ero-Sennin's body as well. Way too flail-y.

    I think the hair would get to you more. Especially the two wings of hair I have on my back.

    I dont know about you folks, but I constantly have problems with my phaser running out of batteries.

    Something to do with too much kill and not enough stun?


    P.S. That machete gun is the coolest thing ever invented by anyboady ever. Nobel prize for that man or woman.

    I have learnt some forms with Fans and seen them demonstrated when I did DSD. I still think they are useless.
