Martial Arts Weapons

Welcome to our Martial Arts Weapons for sale. Here we cover the basics of the weapons used in many traditional martial arts. We have a wide selection of Bo staffs, Sai, Kama and Nunchaku.

Martial arts are systems of codified practices and traditions of training for combat. While they may be studied for various reasons, martial arts share a single objective: to defeat one or more people physically and to defend oneself or others from physical threat. Many martial arts weapons came from the necessity to defend ones home from invaders as well as their use as tools. There is much mysticism surrounding the martial arts and the weapons that were used by these warriors.

  • Bo Staff

    Bo Staff

    bo is a long staff, usually made of wood or bamboo, but sometimes it is made of metal or plated with metal for extra strength; also, a full-size bo is sometimes called a rokushakubo. This name derives from the Japanese words rokumeaning "six"; shaku); a Japanese measurement equivalent to 30.3 centimeters, or just under 1 foot; and bo. Thus,rokushakubo refers to a staff about 6 shaku (181.8 cm, about 6 ft.) long. Other types of bo range from heavy to light, from rigid to highly flexible, and from simply a piece of wood picked up off the side of the road to ornately decorated works of art.

  • Kama Weapons

    Kama Weapons

    Kama weapons are Okinawan and Japanese weapons that resemble traditional farming devices similar to a scythe. It was originally a farming implement, used for reaping crops. During the annexation of Okinawa by the Satsuma, all traditional weapons were outlawed. This led to the development of the kama and other Kobudo weapons. It is sometimes known as a 'Hand Scythe'. When a ball and chain are attached to the end of the Kama, it becomes a kusarigama, a formidable (if hard to master) weapon because its range makes it extremely difficult for opponents to approach the wielder. A similar weapon called Lian, possibly an ancestor of the Kama existed in China since ancient times.
  • Nunchaku

    Nunchaku

    The nunchaku (Chinese: "Dual Section Staff" or "Two Section Staff"), also sometimes called "nunchucks", "numchuks", or "chain sticks" in English) is a martial arts weapon of the kobudo weapons set and consists of two sticks connected at their ends with a short chain or rope. The other Kobudo weapons are the sai, tonfa, bo, eku, tekko, tinbe-rochin, surujin, and kama. A sansetsukon or three sectional staff is a similar weapon with three sticks attached on chains instead of two. Our Nunchaku are of the highest quality and can be used with pride either in the dojo or on stage at a competition.
  • Sai

    Sai

    The martial arts sai weapon found predominantly in Okinawa (there is evidence of similar weapons in India, China, Malaysia and Indonesia). Sai are often believed to have originated as an agricultural tool used to measure stalks, plow fields, plant rice, or to hold cart wheels in place, though the evidence for this is limited. Another belief, perhaps not as widely held, is that they were modeled after the San-Ku-Chu. Its basic form is that of an unsharpened dagger, with two long, unsharpened projections (tsuba) attached to the handle. The very end of the handle is called the knuckle. Sai are constructed in a variety of forms. Some are smooth, while others have an octagonal middle prong. The tsuba are traditionally symmetrical, however, the Manji design developed by Taira Shinken employs oppositely facing tsuba. The sai's utility as a weapon is reflected in its distinctive shape. With skill, it can be used effectively against a long sword by trapping the sword's blade in the sai's tsuba. There are several different ways of wielding the sai in the hands, which give it the versatility to be used both lethally and non-lethally. Traditionally, sai were carried in threes, two at the side, as primary weapons, and a third tucked behind, in case one was disarmed or to pin an enemy's foot to the sandy Okinawan ground. As a thrown weapon, the sai have a lethal range of about 20-30 feet. Throwing the sai was typically used against an opponent with a sword, bo or other long range weapon. The heavy iron (or in contemporary versions, steel) sai concentrate enough force to punch through armor. Our Sai at Swords of Might are of the highest quality and very much keep in the style of tradition. You may also find some of our sai are very non-traditional, perfect for those of you who want to impress the judges with your unique style.
  • Tonfa

    Tonfa

    Folklore says tonfa were originally used as wooden handles that fit into the side of millstones and were later developed into weapons when Okinawan peasants were banned from using more traditional weaponry. Other sources say they have a richer history, extending back into Chinese martial arts, and appearing in Indonesian and Filipino cultures. It also appears in Thailand as the Mae Sun Sawk. The difference is that the Mae Sun Sawk has rope tying the elbow end of it to the arm. The tonfa traditionally consists of two parts, a handle with a knob, and perpendicular to the handle, a shaft or board that lies along the hand and forearm. The shaft is usually 51-61 cm (20-24 in) long; optimally, it extends about 3 cm past the elbow when held. Often the shaft has rounded off ends which may be grooved for a better grip. There is a smaller cylindrical grip secured at a 90 degrees angle to the shaft, about 15 centimetres from one end. Our Tonfa are of the highest quality and are used by Martial artists all over the world.
