A tonfa (トンファー, tonfā) consists of a stick with a perpendicular handle attached a third of the way down the length of the stick. Tonfa may be used to strike, jab, block, and bludgeon. Because of their design and application, tonfa are most skilfully wielded by those already highly proficient in close-range combat.
Dowsing is a technique using a pair of simple L-shaped rods. One rod is held in each hand, with the short arm of the L held upright, and the long arm pointing forward. The practitioner then concentrates hard on what they're looking for, and the rods react when they're getting close to it. Dowsing is most often used for finding water. Momiji's ancestors had been practising the technique for decades.
Ruiga used his tonfa as dowsing rods, which he could use to find water for his water technique.
