Martial Arts Training Weapons
Whilst most traditional martial arts weapons may not have a valid place in modern day warfare, they can still be great training aids for martial artists. Practicing with martial arts training weapons develops the same skills needed in unarmed combat as weapons are quite often used as an extension of the arm providing more reach and impact force. Even though you may never carry a weapon around with you, training with weapons is a very important part of self defence training. If you really want to be able to defend against a weapon you must at least have a basic understanding on how that weapons works. At Universal Self Defence the most favoured weapon to use for training purposes is the rubber knife. Self Defence against the knife is a very practical choice as it is the most common weapon you can come across in every society that still uses the kitchen. Also the self-defence techniques you learn against a knife can also work effectively, with only minor adjustments, against many other handheld objects that maybe used as weapons. There are two main types of training knives used, the rubber knife and the Tanto the traditional wooden knife. Other training weapons available at Universal Self Defence are the Arnis Eskrima Kali sticks, pole staffs and self defence training plastic handguns.
