Weapons Training

Weapons are an integral part of New Tampa Aikido. Weapons work integrate the weight, balance, stance, timing and distance of one’s body movement. As extensions of the body, wooden staff and sword polish and develop one’s body, mind and spirit. As the late master Kisshomaru Ueshiba wrote in his book, Aikido, “unless you can make the weapons part of your body, you have not truly trained in Aikido.”
