I'd just like to know if, in the process of learning it, you also learn to use weapons. I have heard from people who have been in Aikido dojos that they learned how to use Wakizashi and Bo staffs. Before I look further into this, I'd like to know if I'm barking up the wrong tree here.
Footnote: No, I do not want to become a "Fighting Hero Samurai!!121". I want to learn how to use staffs properly.
