Okinawan Kobujutsu

What is Kobujutsu?

Kobujutsu (ancient warrior art), also known as Kobudo (ancient warrior way), is a uniquely Okinawa Bukijutsu (weapon fighting art).

Severely restricted in weapon ownership by conquering Japanese Samurai, the early Okinawa Bushi (warriors) improvised weapons from obscure tools and implements to protect themselves and Okinawa citizenry from bandits, pirates, and thugs.

Weapons are taught by Scott Sensei, a student of Kimo Wall Sensei, and Lee Gray Sensei.

Weapons training includes the hojo undo (supplementary exercises), kihon waza (foundation skills), kata (form), and oyo (application). Weapons taught include the Bo (staff), Sai (truncheon), Tonfa (short handled club), Nunchaku (flail), Kama (sickle), Guwa (hoe), Eiku (boat oar) ,Tinbe (shield), and many other Kobujutsu implements.
