#137158 - 01/19/05 10:22 AM What is the translation for this kata?

I asked this question in other parts of the forum, but it seems that no one knows the answer. Hopefully you guys may know, as this is a short stick kata I'm talking about. My question is: What is the translation for "Sekun No Ton Bo"? I always thought it meant "Gentleman with a short stick", but apparently, I was wrong. Does anyone have any ideas as to what it translates to?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I haven't come across that name before but maybe someone else has.

Often bo kata were named after their originators and thus we have Sakugawa, Shimabuku, Miyazato [sometimes spelt Miasata], Aragaki, and Soeishi to name a few.

Perhaps your kata has been modified [and renamed] from Tsuken Bo kata.

It is very possible that the Sekun Bo kata you are refering to is actually TSUKEN NO KUN. If so then it is a very obscure kata that was believed to have been passed down by a man known as TSUKEN MANTAKA. There are two other adaptations of this kata with Nunti and Eku they are
Tsuken Aka Cho no Eku
Tsuken Aka Cho no Nunti.
The kata is a very fast and powerful kata. Hope that helped.
