Weapons in Tang Soo Do
Tonfa & Bong Seminar Feb 2004
Nunchaku Seminar March 2004


We train various weapons in addition to our empty hand syllabus!

Weapons are taught so that we can use them and defend better against them. There are both practical (eg. Knife) and traditional weapons (eg. Sai) taught. In Combat Tang Soo Do we balance traditional weapons training with practical self defence and concentrate on keeping some traditional practice alive and being able to use the weapon effectively on the street.

Combat courses are run throughout the year in the various weapons and once these courses have been done, the weapons are revised and honed in class.



The Weapons we train include

  • Bong - long staff
  • Sai
  • Tonfa
  • Short Stick
  • Knife
  • Nunchaku
  • Tekko
  • Kamma
  • Sword

Kali Sticks, Sai & Bong
Sai vs. Sword
Knife Training
Weapons are taught from the traditional Tang Soo Do and Kobujitsu Syllabus which is why there is such a variety. The emphasis is on practicality with students taught the traditional, as well as practical self defence applications, for every weapon. The knife and short stick are particularly suited to this, and being able to use the weapon and defend against them, in the street, become the major focus.
