This can include staff training, formerly refered to as Jo/Bo. Nun Chaku, which is often fondly called "Nun chucks" by the uninitiated. Though also Bokken fighting which is a wooden sword sparring style. And for those who wish to study even further there is also the Tonfa bar, or Sai daggers. Some of the aspects that you will approach with Traditional weapons lessons will directly enhance and further progress your combative abilities.
Beyond this there is much more to gain from these studies. The martial arts can offer much more than combative ability alone. There can be a beauty and poise to the movements that you perform. It really depends upon how you perform them. Here is where we can delve in to the poetry and artistic expression of a performance martial artist. Here we study beyond just combat and in to harmonious movement and connection with your chosen study.
These lessons for those who venture them, will enhance your ability overall, by adding a precise touch and control to the power and forward thinking movements that you will gain in your regular study. These subjects can also be explored by themselves by one to one students, as some purely wish to learn about the "Art" side of Martial Arts.
