Akalis lore states that she was taught by her mother to use her fists, but she uses two kamas. Why?

She does not necessarily have to use her fists.

The first part of training in any form of weapon is to master one's own body. The first line referring specifically to Akali was that she was 'training with her mother as soon as she could make a fist'. At first, she only learned unarmed combat; but it was less about punching, and more about finding weak spots of her target, and applying swift strikes, not force. As seen from this line - 'she could slice a dangling chain with a chop of her hand' - her martial art was about precision, not brawling.

After she was fourteen, she was inducted to the Kinkou, which then taught her the art of kama. Eastern warriors treat their weapons as extension of their own body quite literally, and take care of them just as much, so it was less difficult for Akali to apply what she learned from her mother to kamas than it would be to, say, a nunchaku or a kusari.
