Warrior Martial Arts Weapons can be Divided into Different categories:

  • Short weapons
  • Simple weapons
  • Primitive weapons
  • Long weapons
  • Flexible weapons
  • Projectile weapons
  • Bladed weapons

Many warrior training systems include their martial weapons training as part of their system, while others base the warrior martial art system solely on weapon training. 

In some martial arts training curriculum they use special and unique techniques that pertain to the martial arts weapons themselves.

These techniques are kept separate and apart from the hand to hand unarmed portion of their training. 

While other systems may have no difference in open handed unarmed combat techniques and the movements used by their martial weapons. The weapon is viewed as an extensions of the body.

In these arts the unarmed techniques flow and react in the same movements as the martial art weapons themselves. So, which way is best?

Either of the two above paths can be equally effective, but the most efficient way to approach martial arts weapons training is to adhere to the following training concepts..

  • Allow unarmed techniques to flow into weapon techniques
  • Allow weapons techniques to transform into your unarmed combat

Inevitably your weapons training and unarmed combat training become seamless.
