Ryukyu Kobujutsu

Kobu-Jutsu or Kobudo, the traditional weapons arts of Okinawa and the Ryukyu Islands, is practiced as part of the curriculum of our Karate. However, we have a separate curriculum for Kobudo in place, so that our students may achieve rank in this art while using it to learn more about Okinawan culture and expand their knowledge of the martial arts. Our practiced Kobudo includes the study of the bo, sai, nunchaku, tonfa, kama, eiku, and other indigenous tools.

Jones Sensei has studied a multitude of various kobudo systems, such as Taira, Matayoshi, Tokushin and Ufuchiku. He currently has achieved the following ranks;

  • 8th Dan Hanshi– Ryukyu Dento Kobujutsu Ufuchiku-Den
  • 7th Dan Kyoshi – Ryukyu Kobujutsu
  • 5th Dan Shihan – Seidokan Kobudo
  • 4th Dan – Matayoshi Kobudo

Our ranking system is sanctioned by the Ryukyu Dento Kobu-jutsu Hozon Budo Kyokai in Okinawa and the Sekai Dentokan Budo Renmei.
