Re: weapons/names and opinions
I have found that if it is taught in the right measure it can
benefit your training tremendously. Weapons are a good training
tool. As I said before distancing and timing awareness increase like
crazy when you study buki. That awareness carries over into your
hand techniques and accelerates your understanding of the art. As a
junior who has an instructor with a great deal of knowledge in
weapons, I have found this. So my words of encouragement(personal
opinion), to juniors is - if you find an instructor who supplements
your training with weapons, stick with them. Now having said that,
if they are spending too much time on weapons and neglecting hand
techniques...that's a different story.
Oh, and if you have an opinion and don't care to list your
name...who cares? We don't want to scare people away who are de-
lurking and have interesting things to say.
