Karate Weapons

Karate weapons, like all karate equipment, need to be of the best quality. When you practice with them, you don't want them falling apart on you, or anything vaguely resembling that. Shoddy, poorly made weapons could cause injury to you and your sparring partner. Obviously, that's not a good thing.

The important thing to remember here is that when you use weapons in your martial arts studies, they're actually not supposed to hurt anyone. You don't actually cut anyone with a sword while practicing with it, nor do you really break bones with a nunchaku (or nunchucks). But if your nunchucks are poorly made, you may break your own bones or someone else's.

So, How Can You Make Sure Your Karate Weapons Are Good Quality?

The easiest thing to do would be to talk to your fellow martial arts students. Find out what weapons they practice with, what brand the karate weapons are and where they got them from. You might also speak with your instructor and see what he recommends. He may feel that you're not quite ready to learn how to use a weapon and he would be the best judge of your abilities.

So, remember, while practicing your martial arts, weapons aren't supposed to actually hurt anyone. It sounds silly at first, but when you are just practicing, no one should ever be injured. So, be careful, be smart and do your research!
