No weapons taught at any of the classes that I attended. From what I have picked, you need attend the senseis' outside dojo to learn weapons.
Yes, this is exactly what Yokota Shihan told us this past weekend during the seminar he taught here in Hilo.

He teaches weapons to his students at a local gymnasium (we were fortunate to have him instruct us for two early morning weapons classes). So, while there are no weapons classes at Hombu, there is significantly proficient instruction available nearby.

What a GREAT seminar it was; he flew to Honolulu this morning and will be instructing on Oahu next weekend!
