Phase 6 - Weaponry
By this point you will have developed all the necessary skills to start training in the finer movements of the SBL, using hard (blades) and soft (cloth) weapons.
During this phase you are taught how to wield weapons in order to understand their destructive nature, learn how they move, and thus defend yourself against them.
Training with the weapons helps you to discover what you might be lacking in your martial arts i.e. your timing skills, or if you carry fear within some of your movements and reactions.
