Currently, weapons forms are not required until the rank of 1st Degree Black Belt is earned. At that time, the Bahng Mahng Ee and Ssahng Jeol Bong forms are required.
Color belts are not required to learn a weapon, but they are encouraged to do so. Lower rank students who do weapons forms at testing can earn an additional ten points.
Open classes provide a great opportunity to work with new weapons or techniques. Every Wednesday is "Weapons Wednesday" and each class that day will include time to work on striking lines and freestyle forms.
