Sai

The Sai is a weapon from Okinawa, which is used in Karate or Kobudo. Sai are used as a weapon in the Chinese Wushu, the Indonesian / Malaysian Silat, in Vietnamese Co Vo Dao Vu khi Thuat and the Indian Kalarippayat. The basic form of the weapon is that of a pointed, prong shaped metal baton, with two curved prongs called yoku projecting from the handle. The offered Sais are all made from one piece of steel, and are thus full-contact-ready.

Sai is generally used in pairs. There are many types of sai with varying prongs for trapping and blocking.

Parts of the sai are

  • Monouchi, the shaft of the sai, this can be round or faceted.
  • Yoku, the prong like side guards which are usually symmetrical but the manji design developed by Taira Shinken employs oppositely-facing yoku resembling a Buddhist symbol, the reverse swastika (manji) from which it takes its name.
  • Tsume, the tip of the side guard (yoku).
  • Moto, the actual center point between the two side guards (yoku).
  • Tsuka, the handle of the sai. The tsuka can be wrapped with different materials such as cord or ray skin (same) to provide a grip.
  • Tsukagashira, the butt end of the handle (tsuka).
  • Saki, the tip or point of the sai which is usually blunt and not pointed.
