"As parents, we find the team in Wushu Central excellent - not only they are competent in their discipline but they are also great with kids. They know how to be respected but also appreciated and get the best out of our children."
- Isabelle Reddy
Our Padded Weapons class teaches students how to utilize Chinese weaponry in combat safely and without risk of injury. You will be trained in swords, staffs, spears, double weapons, and archery - all with soft-tipped equipment and protective gear. Best of all, you get to practice your skills with partners at full speed, which will improve your weapon skills at an incredible rate.
Padded Weapons training begins with learning how to properly handle each weapon. For example, with the long sword you will learn the proper grip and the best angle to hold the sword to balance offensive and defensive capabilities. We will show you the most effective techniques and strategies of the sword, and train you to strike quickly and precisely. Once you have the basics down, you are ready to practice with a partner. Through sparring, you will build reflexes, and quickly discover your strengths and weaknesses. Over time, you will become an expert swordsman or swordswoman!
With a variety of weapons to learn, you will gain experience in using and defending against all of them. How will you fare when your sword meets an opponent with the long reach of a spear? Can your twirling staff deflect a padded arrow flying at you? To mix in the fun, students get to apply their combat skills in a variety of games. In games such as Team Deathmatch, Free-For-All, Capture the Flag, and more, you may find yourself facing multiple opponents or need to utilize specific strategies to complete your objective.
Each class offers something new to learn and tremendous fun. We welcome you to join!
