Amara Arkanis is a complete martial art. On the surface it looks like there are two different arts- an unarmed art using the hands and the feet and an armed art using sticks, knives, and other alternative weapons.
But a close examination will reveal that it is one and the same complete martial art. All the techniques may be executed with or without any weapon. The fact is, weapons such as sticks or knives are regarded as an extension of the hand which is the extension of the mind and heart.
For educational and learning purposes, the unarmed techniques and the armed techniques are presented separately so a better understanding of the art is achieved. The student, however, must always remember that all and every technique, particularly hand techniques, may be executed with or without weapons.
