To kick off the Ryukyu Kobujutsu (Kobudo) program at the ATA Black Belt Academy of Sandwich, I'll be conducting a workshop there on the bo (kon). It is the start of a series of workshops that will eventually cover the full range of Ryukyu weapons such as the sai, tonfa, nunchaku, kama, etc. required for shodan grade (registered in Japan). This is Shinken Taira - Motokatsu Inoue style Kobudo.
The workshop will cover the following:
• 5-5-5 Bo kihon (basics)
• 10 basic Bo kumite (sparring)
• Shuji no Kon Sho kata (form) & bunkai (application)
• 15 moving Bo kumite (… if time permits)
All are welcome to participate however slots are limited. Full details can be found here: Ryukyu Kobujutsu (Kobudo) Workshop May 2012
