While the weapons are traditional, the techniques behind them can be applied to any modern day “weapon” that you could potentially come across in the streets. As such, our weapons program teaches realistic self-defence applications and knowledge so you can be better equipped and remain safer.


You will learn techniques and applications using the following light weapons:

  • Bokken (Wooden sword)

  • Twin stick Arnis (also known as Kali or Eskrima) and
  • We also teach knife defence

Training is suitable for beginners and is taught from a level of basic understanding of how to use the weapon, right through to mastery.

the kids have been students here for close to 18 months and I love it...

As parents of young twins, we were looking for an avenue for them to have a bit of fun and a release of energy. So we thought the kinder ninja program in Edge would be ideal. When the kids first started, they were both a little reserved, as it was new to them. But the Sensei’s and Sempai’s are excellent and making them feel welcome and encouraging them to participate. Now the kids have been students here for close to 18 months and I love it. They attend classes weekly and grade at the end of each term. We’ve seen them grow and develop their martial art skill, while at the same time developing skills for school, reading and listening, following instructions and group integration. Most importantly, they're having fun and we are so pleased that Angus and Emily are part of the Edge Martial Arts team.

everyone was supporting my decision to continue going and continue fighting...

The reason i joined Edge was because I was invited by one of my friends and I really enjoyed it. I just love the adrenaline it gives me, I mean, we’re such a good community. I feel like they’re my second family, like everyone there. I'm a lot more disciplined now, I have a lot more leadership skills also. I've also pushed my limits a lot more since I've joined. I did my black belt grading with a hurt ankle and I felt like the only reason I achieved doing that was because everyone was supporting my decision to continue going and continue fighting. I feel like I’m a much more of a team player and I also chase after this girl at a tournament, because i didn’t get to shake her hand and I felt like, if I hadn’t have joined Edge, I wouldn’t have done that. So the reason I love Edge so much.

I've become more disciplined and more in control of my emotions...

My name is Tyson and I've been with Edge for around ten months now. Through this time, I've become close with many of our instructors, they’ve taught me so much in the short time I’ve been there, I am so thankful for it. Obviously, I’ve learned a lot of self defense techniques and Edge has led me to become quicker. Aside from the physical benefits of Edge’s Martial Arts program, I’ve learned a lot mentally. I've become more disciplined and more in control of my emotions and I have the Edge community to thank for this. We are always pushed to do our best, I couldn’t ask for a better community.

For me, it’s the safety...

My name is Regina and I’m just here to give a recommendation for Edge Martial Arts. My children started quite a few years ago and have gone through the belts, as you would call it. Tanzyn is now about to go for her black belt and Rali is in two weeks time, just about to go for his green. The reason we put our kids into martial arts is, as you know, there is certainly a need for it now with society, so we couldn’t think of a better place for our children to come and it's helped with Rali’s coordination, it’s helped with Tanzyn’s confidence. I enjoyed it so much watching them, that I myself now am a student here and am about to go for my brown belt. For me, it’s the safety. I work in an industry where I meet new people all the time and it’s the confidence that, if anything should happen, I have the skillset from shihan and kyoshi to hopefully avoid the situations in the first place. I cannot recommend this company highly enough and look forward to seeing you down here.
