One Okinawan Kobu weapon not yet mentioned. These were either wooden sticks or originally bamboo stakes strapped along the arms, with the ends or points projecting out past the fist and elbow. The form "Jinte" was originally designed for their use. These are one of the few Okinawan weapons I do not know of any Chinese prototype for, they do resemble one version of Thai "Mai Sau".
