Training contents

1. Bo

Bó techniques (Bó-jutsu) are different to those used with swords but can also be used like a sword. Depending on the technique, it can change into many different kinds of weapons. A sword must contact the opponent with the edge of the blade or it will not cut. This is a limitation. The Bó does not have a blade or handle. It can be used to beat, strike or cut. Its length hides many possibilities and has capabilities in common with the sword, halberd and spear.

2. Sai

The Sai (Steel Truncheon) passed through India and China to enter Okinawa, where it was further developed. During the Ryukyu Kingdom Era, it was originally devised as a policing tool for the protection of the King and high ministers. Used in combat situations and in the arresting of ruffians and criminals.

3. Nunchaku

The Nunchaku was originally used as a horse bit. It was not very popular as it has a low effectiveness when used against the sword or Bo. In situations against Tunfá or Kama, it had more chance of defeating the opponent. This weapon is nevertheless effective in self-defense, if the time is taken to become proficient with it. Beware, this weapon has the tendency to cause bruises, especially when learning.

4. Tonfa

The Tonfa is basically a wooden grind stone handle and used in pairs. Tonfá is quite difficult and requires a high degree of skill. To use this weapon with ease requires considerable practice and time. There are two kata taught in the Ryukyu Kobudo Shimbukan system. They are Hama Higa no Tunfa and Yara Gwa no Tonfa. Hama Higa no Tonfa is a required kata in the Nidan Grading.

5. Tekko

Originally developed from a common horseshoe. Tekkó are conveniently concealed and can quickly be extracted for self-defense. The tekko kata is Maezato no Tekko and was developed by Taira Shinken Dai Sensei.
