|Kobudo is a very important part of traditional karate. Kobudo is taught with karate & includes bo (6-foot staff) and many other weapons. After learning basics (kihon) and kata (forms), we focus on bunkai (applications). Every move in every kata is taught as a practical application in Shorin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo Seiyo Kai and taught to be powerful and focused.|
