The Sai

The sai is a weapon that has gained popularity in recent years because of its beauty in weapons kata and because of its practicality and effectiveness as a weapon of the martial arts. The sai was originally used to plant rice and is still in use in some parts of the world today.

It consists of a piece of steel or heavy metal that is approximately twelve inches in length, with a pointed or blunted end, and two prongs handles that extend down the blade to form a handle and a protection for strikes. All parts of the sai are used as a weapon -the end or butt for striking, the blade, the prong, and even the handle.

With a little practice, the sai can become one of the most beautiful and dangerous weapons you can learn to use. It is considered an illegal weapon in several states, so check with your law enforcement agency before carrying it on your person or in your car.
