Okinawan Kobudō (沖縄古武道), literally “old martial way of Okinawa”, is the weapon systems of Okinawan martial arts.
We teach the Matayoshi style of Kobudo from Okinawa.
My teacher (sensei) is, Shihan Nishiuchi, the president of the International Okinawa Kobudo Association (IOKA).
Weapons that are taught here include:
Bo, Sai, Nunchaku, Tonfa, Iyeku, Kama, Kuwa, Timbei, Nunti, ShuChu, Suruchin
Okinawan kobudō refers to the weapon systems of Okinawan martial arts. These systems can have from one to as many as a dozen weapons in their curriculum, among the bō (six foot staff), sai (three-pronged truncheon), tonfa (handled club), kama (sickle), and nunchaku (two rope- or chain-connected sticks), but also the tekko (knuckledusters), tinbe-rochin (shield and spear), and surujin (weighted chain). Less common Okinawan weapons include the tambo (short stick), the hanbō (middle length staff) and the eku (boat oar of traditional Okinawan design).
