During these sessions we will breakdown body mechanics and basic physiology to ensure economy of motion, proficiency in executing technique with maximum effect. Assess situational awareness, and the most realistic and practical application when confronted with a threat of violence or the surprise attack. Furthermore, study and identify human weakness, physical and mental. We will expose those weaknesses in all application of technique. If you do not strike you cannot effectively defend, so there is no bull shit here with no touch wizardry, special pressure point knockouts, or fancy non-sense. Straight forward effective techniques that in most cases refer to specific kata movements. We will not be teaching kata in this session, but may refer to it so you can see the relationship.
Weapon training can be traditional or modern. In this series we will blend the two. What was old can be as good as new with specific adjustments. Careful analysis of each weapons' design can uncover its purpose and use. Creating situational specific scenarios, coupled with the correct positions and body movements will maximize the understanding and possible technique application with each weapon. These weapon techniques are transferable to all extensions of the empty hand. In many cases the techniques are the same with slight adjustment to footwork, timing and distance. These sessions focus on an in-depth understanding of weapon use, not accumulation of weapons katas. Learning a kata does not qualify as "knowing a weapon".
