Kobudo and Weapons
Shorin-ryu Karate Academy still continues to teach the old traditional kobujutsu katas as well as the practice of kumite, which is the fighting methods used with these weapons. The most common weapons taught in this Federation are the Bo, Kama, Sai, Nunchaku, Tonfa these are considered the classical weapons of Okinawa but there are a few other weapons such as the Eaku, Nitan Bo, Tekko, Nunte Bo and the Tinbei/Rochin which are also taught.
Please exercise caution when training with these weapons and remember that in order to learn to use the weapon of your choice correctly you must practice with it regularly. To master any weapon or the techniques that it may offer requires constant and continuous practice. There are many Kobujutsu kata available and it is both fun and a great way to exercise as you explore them. Keep in mind that Kobujutsu training strengthens yours hands, wrists and arms preparing them for tuite and koteaite training.
