Choosing a Tonfa
As with all martial arts weapons it is vital that the weapon is both safe to use for yourself and anyone you might be sparring or training with, so choosing a Tonfa and sizing them to suit your body size and shape is very important.
It is essential that you keep all martial arts weapons in good shape.
Inspect them for any damage that may cause the weapon to break and fail, which in itself, could cause serious injury during training.
Below is a very good video explaining how to choose your own Tonfa and what to look out for in a new Tonfa..
