Our padded weapons curriculum is not based on theory. It is based on years of trial and error in developing a padded weapons program that was curriculum driven, testable, translatable to empty hand, exciting to teach and fun to do. It was not an easy task. We found that the best way to keep student interest and retention in our padded weapons classes was to develop a curriculum similar to that of conventional martial arts; something that was quantifiable with regard to skills and included a specific progression of weaponry. The results have been outstanding! Visualize a modern kobudo class with the added advantage of being able to test learned skills through controlled sparring. This is the approach we took in creating our padded weapons program.

The success of the program has been so good that it has developed into a "second school" with many of our traditional martial art student's crossing over and adding the padded weapons program to their training. We have also experienced a boost in new enrollments that join specifically to train in the padded weapons curriculum and eventually earn a black belt in that program. This program shares our curriculum with martial art school owners and instructors who are interested in increasing their bottom line with a proven padded weapons program that will blend with any style of martial art. This program can be used as an add-on program or it can be combined with your current curriculumas bonus program. You choose. One more thing... because it's padded weapons, its parent friendly, too.

"I can't say enough about this (padded weapons) program. It has far exceeded my expectations. The production values of the DVD's and the manual are very professional. The scope of the program is flexible enough to be used as an add-on program (as it was intended) or as a stand alone program. Best of all, it progresses at just the right rate (challenging but not overwhelming) and still leaves enough room for modifications to whatever art or system one might already be teaching.Thanks so much."
