Metal Kama Weapon Description

Originating from a simple farming tool, the sickle, kama have been developed into to a martial arts weapon in their own right. Many of the Japanese Kubudo weapons were developed like this, as when villages were attacked people grabbed all they had and what they were used to using the most. Imagine taking on a farmer who has been using that kama for the last 20 years for up to 14 hours a day, his muscles, body movement will be perfectly set up for dealing powerful blows and perfect cutting techniques.  


This is how many weapons came into existence and these Metal Kama Weapon are no exception. With a metal blade, although not sharp, and a wooden handle. This metal kama weapon comes as a pair and looks the real deal and allows you to train in relative safety. The Metal Kama baldes have holes in them to help reduce the weight and gives them a very modern look.


Many styles have now taken to training with these now including the XMA practitioners who use the most flashy of moves and high energy performances. The traditional Okinawan forms look very different but emphasis is on survival and dealing strikes and disarms.  This pair of Metal Kama Weapon will serve you well and there is no reason why you’ll need to buy another pair.
