Momentum taken from Wikipedia: Momentum: is the product of the mass and velocity of an object.

The sword or jo does not generate its own momentum, the momentum is generated by the person holding the sword or jo.

There's also gravity to consider.

As well as the fact that a sword or jo has considerable length, and therefore angular momentum around whatever the fulcrum happens to be (usually the hands).
