Kobujutsu (ancient warrior art) also known as Kobudo (ancient warrior ways) 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.

Classes are taught by Sensei Scott Verberkmoes, a student of Kimo Wall, and Sensei Sam Walker.

Weapons training includes the hojo undo (supplementary exercises) kihon waza (foundation skills) kata (form) and oyo (application) of 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 .
