Kobudo (Weapons)

Classes in Oinawan Kobudo at Kazoku Karate Academy consist of instruction and training in a wide variety of weapons. New students are typically given instruction in the use of the Bo, nunchaku and Sal before moving on to the other weapons in the system.

Weapons are practiced in one of three formats, each format having a different focus.

The first format of training is Hojoundo (basics), where repetitive practice of the teachniques without a partner is used to develop proper body mechanics and positioning of the hands. The second format of training is Kata, or forms practice. Kata training consists practicing sequences of techniques designed as an appropriate response to a particular attack. Kata practice serves as a method to practice the fighting techniques in the absence of a training partner. The third format is Bunkai (appllications) and yakusoku Kumites (pre¬arranged fighting). This type of training involves practicing applications of the techniques practiced in Kata and other pre-arranged fighting drills with a partner.

Training in Kobudo at KKA involves the use of real weapons. Plastic and foam padded weapons are not used. The Kobudo classes are structured and are formal. Although the training atmosphere is friendly, the classes are serious and discipline is stressed due to the danger involved in training with real weapons.
