Weapons Training

Weapons are used as a self-defense tool. Montgomery Family Karate Center stresses defense, not offense. Master Smith is a weaponry expert and her teaching is precise. She helps students learn the art of weaponry. For Master Smith, it's not just about slinging swords around. It's a very precise and deliberate form of martial arts.

Training with weapons is done in a very controlled environment. Students are taught to respect their weapon of choice and to use it wisely. Beginner students are never given sharp weapons. The nunchakus they start with are foam, and the bokkens have smooth, dull edges. The safety of the students comes first.
