Best Tonfas 2018 – [Buyer’s Guide]Last Updated December 1, 2018
Best Tonfas of 2018
After carefully examining the reviews and ratings of the people who have used them earlier this listicle has been made. Come with me.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade your comfort, style, or accessibility, we have picks to fit a variety of needs and budgets. I have a variety of material used in the construction of tonfas including metal, plastic, and glass.
Test Results and Ratings
№1 – Foam Covered Tonfa
Why did this tonfas win the first place?
I was completely satisfied with the price. Its counterparts in this price range are way worse. I don’t know anything about other models from this brand, but I am fully satisfied with this product. The product is very strong. Its material is stable and doesn’t crack. I really enjoy the design. It is compact, comfortable and reliable. And it looks amazing!
№2 – Foam Tonfa
Why did this tonfas come in second place?
The material is pretty strong and easy to wash if needed. I recommend you to consider buying this model, it definitely worth its money. I really liked it. It is amazing in every aspect. It did even exceed my expectations for a bit, considering the affordable price. The design quality is top notch and the color is nice.
№3 – RUBBER TONFA
Why did this tonfas take third place?
I liked the design. We’ve been using it for 2 months and it still looks like brand new. This price is appropriate since the product is very well built. It doesn’t squeaks nor bents. Looks great in my apartment. I hope that the good reputation of the manufacturer will guarantee a long-term work.
Tonfas Buyer’s Guide
Choosing the right size
The sizing charts from most manufacturers relate these sizes to height and weight. In order to get the right size for your body type you need to find your height range in the chart. After you find your height range, look at the corresponding weight range. If your weight is not within that range, continue down the weight column until your weight fits the appropriate range.
In situations where your weight puts you in a larger uniform then your height, your pants are going to be too long and will need to be hemmed up.
If your weight puts you in a smaller size than your height, you should order the size corresponding to your height, but you can expect it to fit a little loose.
It is not uncommon for karate uniforms to need some tailoring to get a perfect fit, unless your are the exact height and weight for that size, so that needs to be taken in to consideration as well when deciding what to get.
Some parents like to get a slightly larger uniform for their younger children so they can grow in to them a bit. In this case, they will just roll up the pants and jacket sleeves until they grow in to them.
Air Spin Kick and Air Split Drop
Notation: Down, Forward+(in the air) and Down, Back+(in the air)Enhanced: No
Tanya has an overhead/low mix-up during any blocked combo thanks to her Low Spin Kick and overhead Flip Kick. She also has a similar mix-up in the air with the Air Spin Kick (Down, Forward+in the air) and Air Split Drop (Down, Back+in the air). Neither option is safe if the opponent blocks, and they don’t lead to a combo if they connect. However, both work very well in conjunction with Tanya’s various Teleport options. Tanya has great aerial movement which keeps opponents on their toes, but they also have to worry about an overhead/low mix-up with the Air Spin Kick and Air Split Drop. Mix these up to keep your opponent guessing.
Tanya is all about being in the air and going for constant overhead/low mix-ups. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have any overhead attacks that lead into combos. This means you’ll need to focus on her safe overhead attacks to condition your opponent to block them, then mix in her low combo starter and the Low Drill Kick (Back, Forward+4+Block) to keep them guessing.
You can end almost any blocked combo with the Low Drill Kick (Back, Forward+4) or Flip Kick (Down, Back+4) for an overhead/low mix-up. However, both options can be punished severely if the opponent blocks. Unfortunately, even if they connect, you don’t get much damage from them. You need to connect with the Low Drill Kick (enhanced version) to launch the opponent into the air for a juggle combo and some decent damage.
If it hits, quickly shift into the Low Drill Kick and follow with a juggle combo. If it was blocked, you can still go for an overhead/low mix-up with the Low Drill Kick (or the Low Spin Kick) or Flip Kick, but keep in mind, neither option is safe. If you finish the combo with Bitter Hatred or Betrayal, Tanya remains safe if the opponent blocks.
Tanya’s High Heel (Forward+3) is an overhead attack that’s safe if the opponent blocks. It can be delayed or canceled by holding and pressing Forward, Forward or Back, Back to cancel. The Low Kick (Down+3) and Side Kick (Down+4) are both decent low poking attacks, while the Side Strike (4) is relatively fast and leaves Tanya at a slight advantage which can be used to continue pressuring the opponent.
The Dark Worship combo (3,4) also leaves Tanya at a slight advantage so she can continue to apply pressure. Meanwhile, the Wanted For Treason combo (2, Up+3) is not safe if the opponent blocks, but it works well as a punishment tool. It launches the opponent into the air so you can follow with a juggle combo. You can also use the Natural Palm combo (1,1,2) as a safe poking tool.
The Ambassador combo (2,4,3) ends with an overhead attack and leaves Tanya at a slight advantage if it’s blocked, but your opponent can use an armored attack between the second and third attacks in the combo. However, if you anticipate this will happen you can end the combo early or cancel the second hit into the Low Spin Kick (Back, Forward+4) to get a mix-up between the normal overhead attack that ends the combo and the low-hitting Low Spin Kick.
CenterPoint Sniper 370
History: Designed for destruction, this weapon was originally built for breaking through drywall or masonry walls. Though useful for fracturing stone or concrete as well, the sledgehammer had a significant building role in the history of the railroad.

Remember, close combat means just that. Tight quarters or spaces will limit the longer melee weapons that require an extended arm for optimal impact and use of the weapon.

Hand Weapons-Strike Enhancers; Control Devices
Hand weapons add impetus to things that most people already know how to do, punching, blocking, grabbing, and so on. They are most effective in grappling, close, and short range where you would normally utilize empty-hand combat techniques. Hand weapons fall into two major subcategories: strike enhancers and control devices. The former make your blows more powerful while the latter help you apply grappling applications such as locks, chokes or pressure point manipulations more effectively.
Knives-Cuts and Thrusts
Knives are popular weapons, easy to obtain and silent to operate. They are readily concealable, highly reliable, and do not take much special training to use to hurt somebody, especially in grappling, close, and short ranges. At the simplest level there are two kinds of attacks with a knife: cuts and thrusts. Cuts generally produce more bleeding while thrusts can cause more serious damage. The most effective knife attacks use the element of surprise to ambush a victim.
Swords-Razor Sharp for Attacks
Swords are long-bladed weapons that can be used effectively for offensive or defensive techniques, especially in short- to mid-range combat. There is nothing scarier to most people than three feet of razor sharp steel in the hands of someone who knows how to use it effectively. Even a cheap sword can cause massive damage if used properly. Unlike a knife where targeting can be important, nearly any powerful blow from a full-sized sword can prove severely disabling or even fatal.
A major advantage that swords have over knives and other short weapons is their ability to kill from a distance. With good footwork and a modicum of training a person with a sword can easily defeat a knife-wielder without ever stepping into his/her opponent’s target zone. Most any type of sword can be used for thrusting, slashing, or combination attacks.
Mass Weapons or Heavy Objects
Mass weapons are simply heavy objects that can be used to hit someone, typically from short to mid range. They can be found just about anywhere, in the trunk of your car (tire iron, jack, or fire extinguisher), lying by the side of the road (e.g., board, stick, or rock), at the table where you eat (e.g., bottle, mug, or plate), or even at your desk (e.g., hole punch, stapler, or phone). They may be easiest to understand when broken into three subcategories: blunt instruments, extrusion weapons, and specialty weapons.
Blunt instruments are simply heavy objects such as pipes or baseball bats. Extrusion weapons have an extruding head such as an ax or pick that extends beyond the shaft. They are especially dangerous because even if you block the shaft the business end can still hit you. Specialty weapons require special skills to use optimally, primarily martial arts devices such as tonfa or sai. Certain types of mass weapons such as tactical batons are designed for carry-ability and conceal-ability and are legal in many jurisdictions.
Multi-Element Weapons Use Momentum to Cause Damage
Multi-element weapons include pliable devices such as whips or chains as well as composite items such as nunchaku or sansetsu kon bo (three-sectional staff). They use momentum to cause damage to an opponent and can be effective offensive weapons in skilled hands.
Multi-element weapons have good range characteristics and can be very challenging to block yet must be moving in order to cause damage hence may become difficult to control after an initial strike. In unskilled hands, they can become as much a danger to the wielder as they do to the opponent. Depending upon which weapon you choose they can be effectively used in short to mid or even long range.
Projectile Weapons Can Be Sent through the Air
Projectile weapons include anything sent through the air with force, including hot coffee, rocks, balls, bottles, arrows, darts, certain spears, and bullets. Depending upon the type of projectile employed, these weapons can be effectively used anywhere in close to extreme range. Major subcategories include liquids, thrown objects, bows, and firearms. Chemical sprays, fire extinguishers, and other liquids can be used offensively or defensively as well. Certain liquids such as chemical irritants are even designed specifically for self-defense purposes, distracting or disabling an assailant by affecting the eyes and mucous membranes.
Modern firearms can generally be classified as handguns, rifles, or shotguns. Most handguns are readily concealable and maneuverable, hence practical for self-defense, especially on the street. Rifles are primarily used for military, sporting, and hunting purposes, too unwieldy for many self-defense applications since a majority of gunfights take place at fairly close range. Shotguns as well as handguns are popular for home defense.
Unusual Weapons for Defense
Almost anything can be used as a weapon, including bodily fluids, animals, vehicles, and explosives. Blood-borne pathogens such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, and TB can be used as weapons through syringes, rape scenarios, spittle, or open wounds. In some areas you are more likely to be attacked by a dog than you are to be attacked by a person. These attacks can be just as dangerous as any other type of weapon.
Quick thinking and use of impromptu counter-weapons can save your life from an animal attack just as it can from people. Vehicles can cause significant damage to a human being, especially when moving with any significant speed. Be cautious about pursuing a person in a vehicle if you are on foot.
Meditations on Violence
People are weird. They have an almost infinite ability to learn and communicate. At the same time, this amazing ability is used as much for fantasy and entertainment as it is for information and survival. Take, for example, the rhinoceros and the unicorn.
