For some time, I've trained Modern Arnis (an Escrima Variant) and enjoyed this greatly, especially the fact that one learns to handle diverse weapons - sticks, machetes, knives, ball pens, etc.
I'm thinking of starting Arnis again, but I'm open to other systems that also offer me the physical and intellectual challenge of handling vastly different weapons. I believe there are many well-rounded systems (and many scams and lots of BS too) and different valid approaches; I don't have a problem with challenging my beliefs and feelings by learning techniques from different traditions than Arnis. I don't have specific self-defense needs, but I do want to learn techniques that make sense and are realistic in their context.
So, what are good arts for me?
