As you progress, it will be important to also acquire training weapons appropriate to your level. The most basic and durable are rattan sticks used to simulate different weapon types. Rattan is a sturdy wood made from a vine. Unlike hardwoods which break leaving sharp, dangerous points, broken rattan holds together.
Training armor and weapons should be used to refine your skills. Our padded armor looks much like armor used in motion pictures and can be customized to your liking. Foam, rubber and other practice weapons help add realism to practice.*
*Training armor and training weapons reduce but do not eliminate risk of injury. Always train under the guidance of an experienced instructor.
