Oxford SulKiDo Martial Art - Fitness Self-Defence Korean Arts
Does training involve weapons ?
The syllabus includes weapons techniques, both use-of and defence-against.
Members initially learn staff
techniques, which translate in self-defence
terms to being able to effectively use a handy stick against attackers
of greater strength. In addition to self-defence aspects, occasional
practise with weapons increases agility and concentration.
More advanced black-belt training includes sword and double-short stick,
however these are not taught in the Oxford club.
