沖縄古武道 Okinawan Kobudo
Okinawan Kobudo refers to traditional Okinawan weapons training. It literally translates to “Old Martial Way of Okinawa.”
I teach the Kobudo classes at the Academy of Traditional Karate.
The Okinawan weapons that we train with are the Rokushaku Bo (6′ staff), Sai (three-pronged metal truncheons), Nunchaku (short flail) and Tonfa (traditional precursor to a modern police baton). We also train with Escrima Sticks (Philippine fighting sticks also called Arnis or Kali).
