Anyone else use these?

I got these a long time ago. I can't even remember the name for them. The foremost set.

Anyway, I wanna learn more with them. Any ideas/reccomendations for me? I know the basics of grip, how to rotate them, etc. but that's about it.

That bike mag is actually a Giant catalogue aand that's not Cartman, that's my mother's bear, who is older than she is. He has no fur, no ears, and one eye, and his head is falling off

Yep, them's sai. Nunchaku above them of course. Then a bo, or possibly a broomhandle.

This is a scythe:

Japanese uses plural context different from English -- sai is both singular and plural, same with nunchaku.

Except in Texas, where nunchaku are called "numb-chucks".

Unless you're trained, they are generally more dangerous to the user than to anyone else.

Note that they are illegal in certain countries and states, such as California, unless being used at a martial arts school.

California has this thing against things that are both fun and exceedingly dangerous. Wimps.

I'm somewhat trained. I know the grip basics and the style they're used in.
I got them through a martial arts school, like all my weapons except the 6-foot staff which is custom and legal anyway, while I was still training. I think I will get back into them, and practice with them more.
What I really want is around a three or four foot staff, something faster than my current one.
