I recently puchased as set of custom Tonfa to play with this summer and get the basics down. I've had them sitting around the house so I can grab them throughout the day to practice and get use to handling them. Rae's been watching me and at her first chance, picked them up...such a little martial artist!

Jon said "Ooooh, how cute!" when he saw the 1st pic of Rae. I, on the other hand, had absolutely no idea what she was holding. I'm still not sure what they are!?!

"The tonfa was originally a wooden handle that fit into a hole on the side of a millstone used to grind rice and other grains, dating back to 15th century Okinawa. The handle, which was easily disengaged from the millstone, became a very effective weapon of defense. The Tonfa's circular movements as a farm implement evolved into its rotating strikes as a weapon. They may be used for blocks, thrusts, and strikes."
