    Ok I'm in a bit of a pickle........

    The karate school I am associated with is travelling to Dortmand as part of an exchange programme. I have been asking to do a kobudo class, but - and its a BIG BUT - many of the weapons I use/teach are illegal in DeutschLand.

    So i was just wondering if anyone here knew what specific weapons are outlawed. I know its a long shot, but I am going to speak to the embassy over there just for clarification.

    So fair, it looks like I'll have to buy more sets of foam nunchaku - and foam gama - and foam tonfa - and foam sticks.............

    Hey, no problem.
    We are all training with real weapons and it is no problem.
    You should only keep in mind that they are supposed not to be sharpened.

    I live near dortmund :)

    A knuckleduster. A metal device with raised knobbles on that's grapiied in the hand as you punch someone. Highly illegal in the UK at least.

    Ah, now I know.
    HavenĀ“t any Idea. Maybe you have to order one from a store in a foreign country or just train your knuckles till they are as hard as a knuckleduster. :)

    In the USA it's called "brass knuckles." The illegality varies by the State. But you know, a roll of coins clenched firmly is almost as good. In American currency nickles are best. I don't know about UK coin sizes.

    They're illegal in Scandinavia. They're useful for breaking bones in the face, that's what they're designed to do as well as ad weight and oompf to your punches.

    I can't see such things being supplied to the UK by any legitimate company. I think they're illegal full stop, even in your own home.

    They are illegal. But I don't have Yoda's morals, so I'll let you know: Brass knuckle shaped paperweights made out of brass are not illegal, and can usually be found at that store in your mall with all the replica Klingon blades, ornamental claymores, and balisongs.

    To return to the original question: most weapons are illegal in Germany. on the other hand, most weapon laws have a clause for martial artists. However, in most cases you will need to be associated with an organization and apply for a permit.

    Safety-products, like the safety-nunchaku are much easier to obtain. I recommend not to try to obtain real weapons yourself, German law is strict!

    Dusties are highly illegal in england in any shape of form. If you are caught with them you wil be in the ****.

    That said- I own 2. (Not for sale, I have a conciense). ;-)
