The Foundation Level Martial Arts Weapons

The Tanto and Stick represent the most easily available weapons for most people and therefore the most practically useful weapon skills to learn.  The Nunchucks are learned in many martial arts because they are superbly good at helping to develop great hand-eye coordination and are a great preparation for the neurological patterns required for other martial arts.

Tao Te Kung Fu – Practical Martial Arts Weapons

We all hope that we will never need to use a weapon, however we live in a complex and changing world in which none of us know what the future holds and while we don’t know what exactly will happen or where, we can be sure that some people, at some time, will be glad they learned or wish they had learned to use some sort of weapon.

It is also true that there is almost no child that hasn’t at some point, picked up a stick and pretended it was a sword.  We all play, pretending to have weapons, whether on a computer screen or with a toy.  Even puppies play at fighting, it’s what mammals do, it’s built into us to find it fun.

The weapons and the forms that you will learn through Kung Fu Living are chosen and developed to give you the widest range of transferable skills.  This means that in almost any situation you will be able to pick up almost anything and have the maximum chance of using it as a weapon successfully.  For example, the Tanto is great for developing fast footwork and quick reactions.  The Nunchucks develop coordination and three-dimensional spatial awareness as they force you into learning new patterns that are easily transferred to other areas of your Kung Fu.  Staff work is great for teaching you to redirect your opponent’s weight and force and some swords encourage very precise targeting while others help develop your abilities to counter and deflect quickly.
