Tonfas are the most commonly used self-defense tools among members of police, security, personal guard and many other organs. Very affordable and popular self-defense tools, which are made of hardened rubber or plastic, have their roots in Okinawa.

On Okinawa Tonfa was made not only for fighting, but mainly as a self-defense tool like it is used in the present. The original version of tonfa was made of hard and flexible wood. With time the tonfa was integrated to many self-defense martial arts.

Its name has many forms, for example, Tuifa, Tingua, Tindwa. It was known in the whole Southeast Asia under name Mae Sun Sawk. It was usually used like a paired self-defense tool; when one arm is blocking and the other arm simultaneously performs a counter-attack.

This is the way how tonfa was used in past. Today we use it in a simpler or more passive way.
