    Hello, I am new here. I am not in Kenpo yet....I would say right now my best weapons are Headbut, knees and elbows from the thai clinch, mainly because of my not so long reach.

    Nothing wrong with head-butts, knees, and elbows. Knowing how to fight well at clinch-range is a great asset.

    I would have to say that My two most natural weapons are my right puch and an elbow strike. If I 'm doing a tech or drill that has either one in it I tend to rush to get to those moves. they are by far my favorite.

    My favorite weapons are elbows, knees, and palm heel strikes. When I spar I use sidekicks, backfists and outercrescent kicks a lot.

    Have you heard the phrase to "Steal a person's S---.?"
    This is a prison phrase but it basically means to disarm a person psychologically BEFORE they get their courage up to confront you.
    This is an extremely effective technique and serves as a "first strike "method without throwing a punch. You can get in their face and leave them helpless with only your tongue as a weapon.
    Also very valid points. My words can reach farther than any of my limbs.

    My mouth is my greatest liability.

    But what is my most natural weapon? I defintely use my hand before I use anything else. Chops and hammerfists I think tend to be more natural than other possiblities.

    How about my brain? And before DangeRuss comments on that...No I'm not referring to removing my brain and throwing it at somebody. I'm talking about good ole' common sense and intelligence.

    The weapon I find most natural is the palm strike. The reason for this is that I prefer not to avoid a standard punch to the face due to the number of hard target there which could reslut in damage to the bones of the hand. Of course as this costs me a bit of reach I have to adjust my range accordingly.

    LOL Carol. Coming from a family where everyone, both male and female, was taught to shoot I say good for you. I still have many fond memories of my mother, who was only five one and maybe 100 pounds, picking off clay pigeons so fast with a little 410 that my older brothers didn't even get their 12 gauges to their shoulders.

    Wow...that is fantastic! My mom is deathly afraid of guns, but my dad was an excellent marksman. Fortunately I take more after my dad in that regard

    Another reason why I answered the way I did, was because when Amy originally asked the question, I didn't really know how to answer. My FMA teacher once noticed that I tend to gravitate towards using my elbows so I would say that's probably my most natural weapon.

    Dinner of boiled cabbage & broccoli soup with a side of steamed brussles sprouts...My most natural weapon involves chemical warfare.

    I would have to say the most formidable and most natural weapon that I have in my arsenal Is my brain. Also the greatest distance that I will ever have to cross is the six inches between my ears
