Master Ken's very first student came in for a surprise visit today! Autumn was Master Ken's accomplished student from 1993-1998, even earning her black belt, until he moved from Massachusetts to Florida. Such a great moment for these two 😁#community #lastingmemories ... See MoreSee Less

Here at Master Ken Martial Arts Academy in Royal Palm Beach part of our most basic curriculum includes weapons training with Master Ken. Each of the weapons described below are taught in three month increments to ensure maximum understanding. Be aware that all weapons are taught in a respectful manner with the overwhelming emphasis on safety.

Bo Staff

The Bo Staff is a cornerstone weapon. Knowledge and use of the bo staff allows the student to possess the knowledge and use of many other weapons. Depending upon how it is held it can be used in short range, mid-range and long range applications. Working with a bo staff focuses concentration, increases the student’s attention, and directly affects greater balance and coordination.

Escrima Sticks

Escrima Sticks teach students to maintain the same level of focus and concentration they learned with bo staff – a single instrument of focus – but now they learn the added quality of awareness by having one short stick in each hand. Students learn to develop a point of focus while simultaneously opening up their peripheral vision. The student must learn to balance insight with intuition and to handle situations both near and far.

Sai

Learning the Sai challenges students to work on their focus, their awareness with an even deeper emphasis now on precision, and their accuracy. The design of the Sai combined with its versatility is not only incredibly interesting but it hones the student’s mental acuity and physical dexterity. The Sai will develop within each student a greater recognition of power in both tight and extended applications.

Sword

The Japanese sword, or Katana, is a return to a single focus weapon. Being an edge weapon it creates a whole new level of respect, trust and focus for the student. Training with the Katana sword requires a commitment to mindfulness. In exchange, the student receives a new level of confidence and physical coordination.

We have found that weapons training is a must for students who are battling focus or coordination challenges.

Besides all of these positive results in mind-body connections, learning these ancient weapons is both fun and extremely cool. Across all age groups, weapons’ training is a hit!
