Where can I get a nice priced training sword, Nunchaku, Eskrima, and staff.




Try to make new memories instead of reliving old ones.

Try checking in the weapons area for questions of this kind.

The best resource for training weapons is usually your instructor. Or a place they recommend. I say this becuase when learning a weapon the best thing is to learn a solid base. It takes instruction to get the basice moves down.

Just a small point - Eskrima is an art, not a weapon. Asking to buy an Eskrima is like asking to buy a Karate.

Common terms for the stick used in Eskrima include...

Olisi
Garote
Baston

and my favourite ---- Stick

Make sure you buy rattan with the skin still intact, not the fancy shelled toy that most martial arts suppliers sell.
