The techniques found here are intended to expand the existing list of options used in grappling.

Inside these pages you will find new techniques that use the tonfa as a grappling implement, and the weapon details to add the tonfa to your fifth edition items.

Tonfa are wooden melee weapons that are roughly the length of the user's arm from fingertip to elbow. Typically used in pairs, they have a perpendicular handle that allows the wielder to hold the weapon in a position along the forearm. The tip extends beyond the fist by several inches allowing for precise strikes. The main shaft of the tonfa can be swung out from under the forearm for quick bludgeoning attacks. When being used as a grappling implement, the tonfa can, with a quick flip across the back of the hand, be grasped by the opposite end like a club allowing the handle to be used as a hook for applying pressure with certain grappling techniques. The tonfa adds +1 per held tonfa to all grapple checks and techniques that allow implements to be used. For example, if two tonfa are wielded then you gain +2 bonus to grapple checks and techniques.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
