Weapons training are an extension of physical coordination.
When one masters Weaponry, there will be a transference of Chi energy into the Weapon.
This skill is demonstrates Power and then the Body and Weapon become a sing unit.
In Jee Shin Wing Chun, combat and self-defence are a priority in training.
Weapons training is secondary.
In today’s violent society, effective self-defence and combat skills are imperative.
