We believe that you need to know how how to use a weapon before
learning how to defend yourself against it. Learn how to control a
weapon and its strengths and weaknesses. We teach weapons and self
defense against weapons after a student has achieved proficiency
with their empty hand techniques.
Practice your techniques with a partner and a black belt instructor
who guides and assists you though the process of learning weapons.
We group our students by rank so you can focus on the weapons that
are appropriate for your skill level.
