From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eku is a weapon of Okinawan kobudo that originated from an
oar, approximately 160 cm in length. The oar was traditionally adapted for use
as a weapon of self-defense by fishermen against foes armed with more conventional

Eku techniques are similar
to those of the bo staff; it can also be used as a scoop to throw sand at an
opponent. The eku has a displaced center of gravity and is heavier than the
bo, and is thus considered more difficult to master. Due to the fact that it
has an edge, it can be used to induce cutting damages. Because it is heavier
than a bo, eku technique often capitalizes on the momentum of large circular

The Eku was also used in
the Asian movie Bruka Hindiu where it was the focus of a mysterious power.

often used by fishermen. Due to its weight, a character proficient in Bojutsu
may use an Eku although it had proficiency with it, but takes a -2 penalty on
all attack rolls. If that character also a has a Strength Score of 5×the
number of size categories above fine or more, it takes no penalty instead.
