Combat is seen in all sorts of movies. I recently saw the new TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) movie and each turtle has it’s own unique weapon.
So my Theoretical Thursday is this:
If you could instantly be proficient in the use of one of the following weapons, which would you choose: a) katana (a single-edge sword), b) bo staff (a long, hardened wood staff), c) sai (a pair of three-pronged, metal weapons, where the longest prong is in the middle) or d) nunchucks (two solid ends connected by a short piece of chain).
Can’t wait to hear what you choose!!!
definitely not the nunchucks! i know i’d be knocking myself out with those things a lot more than i’d be doing damage to anyone else. i can’t think fast enough to use the bo defensively. i’m not ambidextrous, so i’d probably hurt myself more than an adversary. that leaves me with the katana. all i’d have to do is remember which edge was the cutting edge, and i’d be in business! (i’ve found myself attempting to cut an apple with the dull side of a knife before, so i know this is a real concern. lol!)
