  • what's your favorite weapons training things to do

    I was wondering what's peoples favorite things too do with weapons? I'm thinking about trying to start an addition weapons class at the school I go to and I'm wondering what people like doing for kubato, or escrima/kali stuff.

    My teacher usually likes to do alot of bo staff forms, then usually a activity. So I want to do more escrima stick stuff. But I need to know what I want to do before, I start the class.

    I don't have much weapons experience, but I'd just like to say, it feels great whirling that heavy guandao around like it was a twig. Not like I've done it that much, but it makes you feel powerful.

      I only know Broadsword, straightsword and whipchain. Some wushu schools have a weapons only basics class. You do a short part of the form full tilt. I also enjoy practicing open hand that way.

      It's strange I actually am enjoying the open hand forms more lately. Many of the movements in longfist are just getting you ready to weild weapons. The basics are very similar. Thats why when people ask for apps on empty hand wushu I always say the app could be preparing you for a weapons app.

        I watched some of Casey Marks videos from Black and Blue productions. She's good. A little different style though.

                        KOBUDO

                        I'm training KOBUDO - Bo Jutsu (180-185 cm staff), style Yamanni-ryu. The principal weapon used in the style is the roku-shaku bo, or six-foot staff. The style has been described as one of the most dynamic and devastating of the Okinawan weapons styles, most probably because of its distinctive wide and flowing strikes, which contrast greatly with the short and choppier movements characteristic of other weapons styles that trace their roots to Okinawa.

                            You know what's interesting. My teacher tracked down a martial arts teacher who is 3 generations away from okinawa. Anyway, the weapons program he put together at his school by going to seminars is the same as that teacher. So now he's going to be taking lessons from him via distance learning. Which is really cool. The escrima stuff isn't the same though, just the bo staff forms.
