In our school we try to approach weapons with safety. We used to have a seperate weapons class, so you could start at white belt, but now we have a new system.
In order to learn weapons, we have to nominate you to the National BlackBelt Club (BBC).
You have to be at least a Green Belt (about 1 year) to be in the BBC. This way we can control who is learning weapons so no crazies get through
Sometimes people don't get in until around Red or Brown Belt. Sometimes we know from the time they're yellow belt and can't wait for them to get through
I started right before I got my blue belt.

We start them out with nunchaku form as soon as they get there. Well, when we have a nunchaku class. And we just changed it to bong as a red belt. I got mine and learned a form at yellow belt, but the ITF switched our rules around. the form i learned is now a sam dan form, haha.

I was part of a Black Belt Club in my dojang, so I started long staff at yellow belt.
