Are there any martial arts that are weaponized?

Yes, many martial arts include the use of weapons.Many people have a misconception as to what a martial art is. Most have the idea that martial art means only the weaponless arts that originated in Asia. This is too limited a definition.A martial art is the study of the art of fighting. It includes all skills that are of value in combat. Archery, sword fighting, shooting, running, equestrian, swimming and dozens of others are considered martial arts, as they can be, and many were and some still are, used in combat.

All martial arts are based on the same foundations as each other. E.g. discipline, health, humility, perseverance, indomitable spirit to name a few.

What are two unarmed martial arts?

Most martial arts will teach you to use weapons and will teach you defense without any tools. Judo and Jiu-jitsu, what they call ground martial arts, teaches you grappling and take-downs, which usually doesn't require weapons. But it's good to know how to handle them, and to learn defense against them, because you never know what your offender could have up his/her sleeve. It is unlikely that you would have access to a martial arts weapon in the event of an attack,it is also impractical and probably illegal.Two are Muay Thai and Brazilian Jujitsu

How do you teach yourself martial arts?

You really can't. To fully understand a martial art you have to work with an experienced instructor. You can learn some martial skills through web sites and videos, but to truly learn a martial art, you have to train with a master.Other Opinions:* The only way to teach yourself martial arts is by trial and error. However, in the modern world, that is impossible, since martial arts is not needed in everyday life for self defense. The original martial arts took generations to develop. In the 21st century, you have to study with a master. Web sites and videos can augment your knowledge, but you cant learn it without a master. If you do not have any masters where you live, I suggest looking at . They have a distance karate course through DVDs, webcams, and email, and you can test for belts and everything. It is not the same as having a master observe you directly, but it is a good substitute.
