What are some Martial Arts that eventually get to teaching you how to use a weapon,
And what are some styles that focus entirely on weaponary.

Thankyou

Well , in my Shotokan school we also did kobudo. Our primary weapon was bo (long staff). Getting my black belt with it was great.

We also work with Sai, tonfa and nunchaku. After black belt they do some kama as well.

Kobudo training can complement karate training very nicely. And it can be a lot of fun.

This won't be complete, but here it goes.

So far in Kuk Sool Won, I have learned:
Long and middle staff, double short sticks, long sword, jool bong (nunchucks), rope, cane, throwing knives, archery.

Weapons I know are still ahead of me are:
fan, double short swords, spear, and the sectional staff.

I'm not sure if I missed any that are ahead of me.

For many of the southeast asian styles the question is not "which eventually teach weapons", but rather "when do they focus on empty hand". Kali, Silat, Arnis, Escrima and their derivatives all start day one with weapons.

Historically weapons were taught first, for expediency. They were taught to the villagers en-masse just before the invaders arrived. Practice of these styles in peace-time was socially frowned upon, and those who did practice were prejudicely labled as "pirates" or insane.

Hi Guys

Filipino arts are awesome for weapons training & differ, as mentioned above, from most arts in that they are taught first. I start my students off with stick & double stick at their first class. They eventually go on to learn...

Single stick
Single sword
Double stick
Double sword
Stick & Dagger
Dagger
Balisong / pocket stick
Double dagger
Long two handeed sword
Staff
.... oh yeah, they learn to kick, punch, elbow, knee, headbutt, lock, throw, gouge & trap too
