Career progression with weapons

I would like to know what careers are available that are based on the ability to use all weapons.

I would say that the two obvious ones are being a full time martial arts instructor or being a film stunt person or co-ordinator. Both of those would require passing some qualifications.
Of course, depending on which weapons you are talking about then military and security work may also apply.

Not sure that the list is even that long. I understand that film stunt work requires a lot more than just the ability to use weapons, and that fight direction isn't really about accuracy of technique. I'm really not sure that a high level of competency with weapons would get you a job in either.
