Posted: Has anyone ever used poi as a weapon or even thought of using it as a weapon I think It makes a perfect weapon because It's easy to conceal, has good range, It's intimidating when swung with fancy moves and It's not concedered a weapon making it's possession and practice legal.

Posted: When I travel internationally I make sock poi with contact juggling balls in the end instead of rice, which makes an effective carrying case for keeping scratches off the ball but also creates a self-defense weapon that I can carry through security. It might not be the best weapon in the world, but it could a heavy, solid, fast-flying acrylic ball could probably break bone and would definitely hurt like hell.
Posted: If you're familiar with Alolan Marowak that uses its bone club as a poi staff for a weapon from Pokemon Sun and Moon that would be my example. I wish I could post a photo here. It's fictional though
Posted: It is interestng you should mention the "concealment" issue, as this reminds me somewhat of the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira, developed by slaves and concealed from their masters as a form of dance.-p.
Posted: It is interesting to read these comments after all these years. I am from the UK, https://populationstat.com/united-kingdom/london . And it looks like not 20 years have passed but a whole century. I wonder what these users would say if they read these comments today, I think the posts would be completely different. Time is changing everything. Do you agree with it?
