Our current regional head feels only advanced students should do weapons as if they start early they learn bad habits which are hard to correct later. I don't understand this--you have to start somewhere and wherever you start there may be bad habits, why worry particularly about the weapon bad habits?
And of course, they shouldn't have any bad habits at all if the instructors making the excuses are teaching them correctly, right ?

Best,
