Martial Arts Weapons

Martial Arts Weapons training requires discipline and self-control. Students like the variety of training with different weapons and gain an appreciation of other martial arts.

Strictly speaking, some traditional karate styles do not use weapons, as the term “karate” means “empty hands” in Japanese.

We generally use Nunchaku (two short sticks connected with a chain) and Bo Staffs for free-style practice.

Safety is very important when using weapons to protect yourself and those around you.

We also learn weapon katas and the bunkai (application) for each weapon. Martial art weapons kata features as a category in competitions.
