Does anyone know which form of martial arts uses Sais?

Does anyone know which form of martial arts teaches you how to use Sais? They are supposed to be really good for coordination. Here is a pic of them:

Im pretty sure there are a number of martial arts that use those or at least something similar but I think Heggi is right, primarily Ninjutsu.

LOL... Actually many styles of Karate (Kenpo, Shinryu, Issinryu, etc) incorporate some form of weapons training. Not all of them teach the wepons forms due to the extended amount of legalise that needs to be addressed. If you are looking for a Karate Dojo that teaches weapons forms, look around for one that teaches either Kobudo or Kobujutsu. Just be forewarned that most don't teach you weapon styles right away, and none teach just the weapon styles exclusively (all require the empty hand styles to be incorporated). Cool thing about that is you can be taught how to handle many different weapons (if the teacher is knowledgable enough).

Just don't go rushing out to find a Ninjutsu place, that isn't the primary style that incorporates weapons training. I've also found that it is also one of the more common "McDojo" types around, as there really isn't a way to confirm someone's credentials as reliably as with other styles. Thank you Eastman and Laird for creating the Ninja Turtles...

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

Not according to this link here. Besides, Sai are not knives... They are originally tines for farming forks/pitch forks. In fact, all of the Okinawan Style Karate weapons in Kobudo/Kobujutsu originated from the use of farm tools. The Nunchaku are originally rice flails. The Kama are farming sickels. The Bo could have been any type of utilitarian dowel or rod used for carrying food or hanging clothes. This was done because the regular peasantry (not part of the Samurai or military class) was not allowed the use or possession of Swords.

True, Ninjutsu does incorporate weapons training (which may include use of the Sai). However, I think it would be easier to find a Karate Dojo that is reputable that includes Kobudo or Kobujutsu training. Like I said, not all of them include training in the weapon arts.

I have a friend that trains kempo karate, he has trained for about 3 years now, and he told me that they dont use sharp weapons, like knifes or anything like that.

It really depends on the dojo. Not all of them will teach weapon styles, if any at all. Most of that would be determined by the personal knowledge and schooling of the sensei, which can be as varied as any MMA practitioner now (just in Traditional Martial Arts).

On the second part, I'm more into sticks myself. I think practical weapons training has its place also, especially in the self-defense realm.
