In our practice the two are intertwined. Referance to the "other" is continually made ......."cut hands like with a sword" as Jo said. "drive shoulder towards the ground like thrusting a spear" etc.

I would be amazed if there was a SINGLE instance where the weapons and open hand work were not referanced together.

I love the feel of a sword in hand.....

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
