sword
weapons
Kobudo is understood as weapons in Western culture, but translates as (Ko) Ancient (bu)Warrior (do) Way.

The weapons taught in class currently:
Bo (staff)
Sai
Kama
Nunchaku
Eiku (oar)
Chinese striaght sword (Jian)
Japanese sword (Iaido)
Shureiken (instructors only)


These weapons teach body movement and understanding for other arts. They also put the student in a position to bond with the weapon and make it an extention of themselves.

Iaido/Kendo

Iaido is the art of drawing and cutting with the sword. Iaido teaches a student an art of meditation and grace as well as an ancient form of weapons training. Unlike Kendo that deals with sport fencing, Iaido strives to end a conflict the minute the sword is drawn. This requires timing, control, and patience.
