Weapon Training

These weapon cross training sessions utilise weapons from Aikido along with weapons used in HEMA and other martial arts. 

 

The sessions are open to all adults, regardless of ability. Different martial art styles are welcome to come and cross train. The training is based on efficiency and flow of movement, focusing on principles rather than just technique. 

 

The sessions are informal and split up into different components with students working in two main areas. One aspect looks at solo practice with the emphasis on flow, stability, good posture, health and self awareness. The other part looks at self defence, concentrating on partner drills, sparring and application.

 

Workshops are also run regularly with guests from other martial art clubs.
