Traditional Japanese Weapons Training: Stick, Knife, Sword, Naginata
Ancient Foundation | Modern Applications
We train several edged and non-edged systems including Kenjutsu - Japanese sword fighting; Escrima - Filipino Knife and Stick Fighting; Bojutsu - Japanese staff; Iaijutsu - Japanese sword drawing; Naginata - Japanese halberd or battleaxe; and Knife use and defence from several systems.
Mentally challenging and a total body workout, the dynamics and principles of our weapons systems can be applied to empty handed combat and modern self defence methods.
Each month we focus on a different weapons system.
