ok, i study kobudo i love it, going to class is the highlight of my week. i want to get more weapons, kama, and sai mostly. but my parents are paranoid, so they wont let me get any sharp weapons. i could convince my dad to let me get a kama with a foam blade, but its just not the same. can any one please give me advice!?

Get wooden training weapons. You can still get the same training with these and it's safer.

Uhuh, here's the plan mate:

Go to your garage and build cyborg twins of your parents and program them to do exactly the same stuff your parents do only that the must let you do whatever you want. The simply annihilate your real parents and live the high life. It couldn't be any easier!

I think it's pretty safe to say Angus is being sarcastic... Anyways, like Ken said, use the wooden ones to start - if you really want to learn how to use the weapons, it won't matter how you learn, right? When you've started to get good with them, then ask your parents again and show them that you are proficient enough to warrant buying the real thing.

Wooden weapons are the way to go here. What I WOULDN'T do is go get real ones on your own. All it takes is for your parents to find them and you may not be allowed to train in MA's at all. Definately not worth it considering the fact in a number years you'll probably be out of the house and can buy whatever you want anyway. The lost training time never comes back though.

i know it sounds boring but just dont go behind your parents back.Then they could even stop you training altogether if they think its a bad influence! i agree with the others, ask them if you can have wooden weapons

when i got my first sword it was the most fantastic and liberating experience. one that must be savored. im not trying to be pompus but i think that the longer you wait and the more you train with wooden wepons the first time you unshith your REAL sword you will know that you can use it and not take your arm off. and you know that it is yours and you have erned it.
yours sincerly Henry South
