Opher, I assume your rather terse post was a reply to my statement about other arts that have a "proven, fully developed weapons curriculum." The techniques of the traditional weapons schools (koryu) were developed at a time when these weapons were actually used and students of these schools employed what they were learning in real life-or-death situations. Because these schools incorperated this kind of experience into their curriculums, I consider those curriculums to be "proven." BTW, I consider the jujutsu techniques of Aikido to be similarly proven.
