The best way to understand weapons is through testing them in combat. Our weapon sparring program starts with two person drills, then light contact and onto fast sparring with realistic weapons and full body armour. Our approach to learning is the same for teaching, an undertaking to expand our knowledge in creative and experimental ways. 

Looking at genuine historic weapons removes the many misconceptions found in film and media. As part of Niel's research he visits museums looking for examples of authentic Kung Fu weaponry comparing them to their European equivalent.
