Kobudo - a tradition of Using Improvised Weapons

 in London - Sherbourne Martial Arts Academy: SMAA

Although most kobudo appears very stylized... you have to remember all the weapons in our Kobudo training were common farming and fishing implements that were used as improvised weapons for combat purposes. During current times, one might think of using a bicycle lock, or a weighted baseball cap, or even a cup of coffee. The selection is as broad as anything that exists in and including your environment.

A prerequisite for children and adults in Kobudo training is to first gain a foundation of knowledge and application in empty handed martial arts such as: Jiujitsu, Karate, Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Wrestling, etc... These forms of martial arts will build skills and knowledge of: base, posture, structure, timing, body position/angles, strength, speed, flexibility and stamina.
