Archaeological evidence suggests the first tonfa were of Chinese or Indonesian origin, but they enjoyed much more widespread use in Okinawa and other Japanese islands. There it was claimed to have been developed from a a modified millstone handle as a result of the restriction of conventional weapons by the rulers of the land back in the day, forcing people to [[ImprovisedWeapon make their own weapons, often out of farm tools. ]]

They are a staple in weapon based fighters, where they are most commonly the main weapon for one of the female characters,[[note]]why male tonfa-users are the minority in fiction is unknown, since nothing about this weapon is particularly feminine, and it's popular among male martial artists in RealLife,[[/note]] and in any anime or manga where all kinds of weapons are already around they will often turn up somewhere down the line in the hands of a character, usually either a competent part of the hero's team or a major threat to the protagonists.
