At LT-MA, weapons are used as training tools to help support muscle development, ambidexterity, and hand eye coordination. As one the few sports that work both left and right side of the body equally, we implement this specialized training to facilitate our student’s developmental process. Teen and adult students also learn to use weapons in self-defense scenarios. Our weapons program adheres to the ATA Pro-Tech Training System which requires a robust instructor safety education and certification process complete with annual re-certifications. Some of the weapons used our program are Ssahng Joel Bong (nunchucks), Bahng Mahng EE (stick), Jahng Bong (staff), and Gum Do (Two handed Sword).
