Martial Arts Weapons Training : History of the Sai Martial Arts Weapons
Michael Lewis here for Christian Martial Arts
on behave of expert village. We are going to talk today about 6 traditional martial
arts weapons. Okay now we are going to talk about the history and purpose of the Sai.
The Sai of course as we said before starts out as a farm tool and what they would use
if for they would acutally stick it into the ground and it would open up a hole into the
ground were they could plant their seed and would go through rows stick it in and planting
their seed also one of the other pruposes of the Sai was that this longer end would
be nailed into an axel were a wooden wheel would on the outside and these two prongs
would connect the axel to the wooden wheel and so that it would beable to turn nd connect
the two together as it would roll. Now because its a metal weapon its perfect against the
Samuri blade and so the purpose of some of the ways of use it was to strike with the
ball end here, a damaging strike. The oher way was to flip it around and also beable
to use the strike and peirce the skin. The Samuri blade would fit right in here and they
would actually catch the Samuri blade and get in to the inside and be able to work the
rest of their techinces.
