Kobudo is a traditional Okinawan ancient weapons art. Over the course of training, students will learn to use different primary weapons, all of which are derived from authentic Okinawan farming and fishing tools. These primary weapons include the Tonfa and the Bo (six-foot staff). Classes generally consist of a brief warm-up, after which the class is broken up into rank groups in order to work on varying curriculum.
Students may be able to borrow club weapons until they feel that the time is right to purchase their own.

It’s an exciting, engaging karate environment that gets kids and their parents excited about being here. Students begin with a foundational class to teach the basics and help them understand how things work at the dojo. From there, they jump into a higher level class with more advanced curriculum that rotates on a cyclical basis to keep kids focused and engaged! At higher levels, students are able to participate in sparring, weapons, and training for demonstration.
