Recently a ton of Okinawan Kobudo video has been placed on They are in the Matayoshi Kobudo tradition,

These video links show Nishiuchi Shihan and his teachings in the Matayoshi Shimpo Kobudo system. Certainly not the entire system of Matayoshi study, but it does show the depth of one of Okinawa's Traditional kobudo systems. These videos cover Nunchaku, Leku (oar), Nuntai (fish spear), Sai, Bo, Kama, Kwua, Suruchin , Tonfa and Timbe.

This is one of the most detailed explanations of an Okinawan kobudo system I have ever seen, literally several hours of material. The only close record is that of the Innoue group in Japan in the Taira Shinken tradition, but even their extensive material doesn’t cover as much individual kobudo depth.

These videos tie directly into the interview with Fred Lohse in the latest edition of Meibukan Magazine at Fred had trained
with Matayoshi as his interview mentions.

To See All Videos

Note: This does not imply this is the best tradition, but a very well documented one at least.

I was waiting to respond until I had seen all of the links.
Very handy, and gives some insight to my school's kobudo methodology.

Our kata are, of course, Isshinryu standards, but we are heavily influenced by the Matayoshi kobudo as taught by sensei Kimo Wall. These videos certainly gave me a few "a-ha" moments, particularly the introductions.

Thanks for the tremendous resource!

Mikio Nishiuchi is a very good teacher. This video is good for learning but I am not very satisfied with all his explanations (bunkai) of kata especially with tonfa. This is good for learning kihon, but some eplanations doesn't have any link with real situations. Bunkai of kata must be adopted to real confrotation!!!

Thanks Victor. It is ten years since I did any proper kobudo but the bo material in particular brought it all flooding back. It looks very similar to what we did except that overhead strikes were only on the right side/right leg forward as I remember. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the Ryu.
