When I saw this rather fascinating video for the first time, it raised a big question: Is this weapon, a combat sarong, more trouble than it's worth?
From my angle, it seems like he uses traditional martial arts moves to own his opponent and then finishes them off with a fancy sarong trick. Unless it can cause considerably more damage than a good punch, I would not buy one.
Then again, if he was wearing one of those things and tried to sell me cookies, I would definitely buy them!
Maybe I'm missing something. Is the sarong a worthwhile weapon?
