The above video shows a demonstration of the basic kobudo bo drill, Fuso Kumi Bo that we performed in 2012. This video was shot when our dojo, The Academy of Traditional Karate, gave a karate and kobudo presentation at our local farmer’s market in Wilmington, MA. In this video I’m demonstrating the attacking side of the drill while MJ demonstrates the defending side.
MJ was only 12 years old at the time and a Yonkyu in kobudo. He had just learned the defending side of the drill and was still perfecting the attacking side. So when we demonstrated the drill he performed the defending side twice rather than us switching attacking/defending sides.
See our previous posts for additional demonstration videos of this bo drill, including both practice and freestyle versions as well as for a step-by-step breakdown and reference sheet to use when learning and practicing the drill.
