A staff member suggested that possibly a Weapons forum would be a good addition?

I wanted to find out what you all thought and if you would like to see it and would be interested in it.

Thanks.

Hi Patrick,
Yeah I think that would be great.
I teach five different weapons maily..so I think it would be quite interesting.

Peace,
Tae

Yeah, it wouldn't be a bad idea. I couldn't moderate it though cos i know very little of the weapons apart from a little stick fighting and Bo staff. I can throw knives too (accurately). It should be good, that is if u decide to do it.

I might be interested in moderating. I can supply info on knives, sticks, short-sword, staff, and sarong/"rope like things". Most of it would have a southeast asian flavor as most of experience with weapons has been in kali and silat.

Hey egarlock, I'm a Kali and Silat guy myself. I also dabble a bit in Krabi Kabrong, the weapon art that Muay Thai came from. Right now, I'm learning flexible weapons and firearms. I feel firearms should be included in modern-day Kali along with blowgun, crossbow and bow. The flexible weapons is really great because a purse can then become a very nasty weapon, using the same methods that a sarong is used for.

why not a weapons forum........if this is going to be a true martial arts forum you will need to include weapons among also the other martial arts as well.

humble regards with a bow
