For what it's worth traditional ITF TKD contains defences against a bayonet and the original books detail attacks with it.

My wife participated in a tournament last year. For the weapons portion, someone from another school (from lower Michigan) whipped out an orange plastic thing shaped like an AR15 for his "weapons form."

Keep in mind that most of the schools participating came from relatively conservative, gun-loving communities (It's probably safe to say that most households in rural Michigan and Michigan's Upper Peninsula have small arsenals.)

What are your thoughts on guns in martial arts?


I think that learning how to use a firearm properly is important for any Martial Artist. Learn how to draw it from where you holster it, practice malfunction drills, and practice reloading (this can all be done in one session and for fairly cheaply). And don't just shoot; work on shooting and moving.

Now, using an rifle replica for a "traditional" weapons form, well, when it comes to competition, part of success is knowing what the judges like and don't like. And if the description is "traditional," then it probably wouldn't include firearms.
