Weapons Classes

In our To-Shin Do martial art, we teach many historical and modern weapons. While introduction to some of these are taught in our regular adult classes, each one has special considerations and such depth that they require study beyond our regular training program. Students can explore this material further in our weapons classes, in private lessons, or through our online videos.

Weapons classes take place Sundays at 1:30pm

Visit our Special Events page for a list of upcoming weapons class dates and themes, or contact us for more information.


Modern Weapons Include:      James with Knife

  • Knife
  • Stick and cane
  • Gun Defenses
  • Improvised self-defense tools
  • And many more!

These modern weapons can be both tools for our own self-defense, or something we may to defend against. We’ll cover both sides in depth.

Historical Weapons Include

    • Sword
    • Six foot staff
    • Spear
    • Shuriken throwing blades
    • And many, many more!


While there can be modern self-defense versions of some of these historical tools, more importantly
they teach strategies of winning that can be applied in every area of our martial art, and even in our
every day life. And, of course, they are a lot of fun!
