    fight for peace and screaming at people to make them be quiet are both super ass backwards. lol. peace in the middle east = i want to take your oil. screaming at kids to be quiet = being a horrible parent and guaranteeing your children will scream at their children.

    the core basis of karate is to kill people with strikes mainly aimed at the weaknesses in the human anatomy.

    the tonfa is actually a very powerful weapon especially since it gives you great defense when fighting against other melee weapons since its basically guarding your arm you can block just with an ordinary outside block downward inside upward and of course the double block also since its wood or metal also the fact that its small and round (square sometime) it gives you high attacking strength and like its defence part you use it like your punching with your hands and at the same the moves of the

    a knght stick is basically a tonfa, same shape, just depends on the material.

  9. cannabischarlie says:

    its very rare anymore for police agencies to use tonfa anymore, primarily because retractable batons (like the asp brand). a big reason is they hang by your side and can be tripped on, so even though the extra handle has an advantage, its not enough of one to be as practical as a retractable one.

  10. JadenPrinceton12 says:

    Yeah, that. The only parts of the tonfa that i know in japanese are the nigiri and the nigiri-gashira

  11. katanaxl says:

  14. Baseballschaap says:

    true, but honestly… when correctly used about anything is a deadly weapon, and that includes your body

  15. katanaxl says:

    i agree, if you cant kill someone with a tonfa, even a wooden one then you are mentaly dull (to put it nicely).

  16. BudoChild says:

    weakest weapons in Japan? That is why Police/Military adopted the Tonfa. You are an idiot man, honestly the Tonfa is a brutal weapon, you can kill someone easily with a strike to the skull, if used correctly.

  17. JadenPrinceton12 says:

    There is a type of Tonfa with a round ” blade ” ( It’s not really a blade, I just can’t find a better word for it ) and those with thick square ones. The round ones tend to be slimmer.

  18. Ale7Returns says:

    dud those tonfas aren’t well made and they wont work for you the wood part should pass your elbow a little and the front small stub should be a little pointed but the handle was made correctly
