Hello Chatan1979

25 kata.... I am in genuine awe of a syllibus which can boast of 25 kata (ie direct koryu material). Kind of like ...Shitoryu Karatedo (sic. -Te) syllibus on "speed"!I am choking & overwhelmed with the "measley" 9 empty handed and the 6 kobudo kata to which I have known access...

25 would quite literally

<<preserve them for further study.

How can you literally maintian them without being a full time teacher given how many you possess??? Its is hard to conceive that many not driving one insane... especially if they were relatively recent Okinawan "kobudo" kata. Some of the ~elder~ Japanese weapons kata, I might be able to conceive as many I imagine would be literally a few moves in their entirity....

<<it takes about 7 or more years to get to shodan.

How many are able to endure that length of time training?

<<I would be happy to post the link to our site

When available, please do so... look forward to looking it all up.... would the days were longer and my retention skills were longer still...

Please dont confuse Okinawan kobudo kata with japanese koryu. They are not the same thing. While some of the kata that I study do go back a few hundred or more years, they are not considered koryu. As far as you question as to how we maintain so many kata, we keep records, videos, journals and we practice ALOT!

So if I do handsprings, cartwheels, and flips while holding a bo in each hand I'm doing something wrong?



What if I do this while holding my chucka sticks ? >>

Hello Chatan1979:

<<Please dont confuse Okinawan kobudo kata with japanese koryu. They are not the same thing.

My apologies, it is what happens when I use foreign terminology, I should know better!!! The koryu arts being exclusively the arts of professional Japanese soldiers (ie Samurai) prior to what the Meiji era? Kobudo kata would one assumes be the "civilian" version indiginous to the Ryukyu islands, correct? In short far less metal all around though no less lethal weaponry?

Hello Borreck:

Wonderful reminder thank you.... TROPHIES. A screen of trophies in the front window being an excellent neon sign to escape that locale at all costs... As for ~Extreme Martial Arts "Trophies"~... aren't those the body parts of your fallen opponents

There is japanese Kobudo and Okinawan Kobudo. For the most part you are correct. Japanses Kobudo focuses more on weapons such as Yari(spear)Kusurigama and a few other more samurai related weapons, whereas Ryukyu or Okinawan kobudo tends to focus more on the peasant weaponry or farming /fishing implements

What would indicate "bad news" (ie run) for some of the "sharper" weapons? Kama being the particular weapon I envisioned but knives, sharpened jutte, short swords, surely would ~fit the bill~ as well.

Hoping to borrow the eyes/warning-signals from those with far more experience, training with these assorted weapons....thank you in advance.

Is it ok to do a heterosexual move then?

Where does the first stick go? You throw up one and catch the second....Are you juggling with another person?
