A martial art student must first be competent with using his hands & feet before he uses an extension of them – weapons.  Therefore, students don't start training with weapons until they're green belt.









At first, the student learns the strikes with each weapon.  Further on in his training, the student then learns 5 or 6 self-defense moves with each weapon.  Then finally, he learns weapon katas.


An advanced student is able to spar with weapons.












With years of training, each weapon feels natural in his hands and he feels proficient in defending himself with weapons.  A true black belt in weapons is no more awkward with a weapon in his hands than with his own hands.










Bear in mind, when the student is first introduced to weapons, he is really a white belt as far as weapons is concerned.  A black belt karate student isn't necessarily a black belt in weapons.
