Any martial arts weapon that moves around the artist must move in a path so as not to injure the wielder. These paths are connectable into patterns and these patterns provide increased power, speed, and efficiency. While these patterns may not be learned easily they unlock an entirely new world to martial artists looking to expand their knowledge of the arts beyond the empty hand. Furthermore, these patterns are universal and allow the wielder to use nearly any martial arts weapon.
