|Kobudo is a very important part of traditional karate. Here, our class is training with the bo (6-foot staff) (2 shaku long) on Thursday evenings. After learning basics (kihon), kata (forms), we focus on bunkai (applications) unlike sport martial arts. Every move in every kata is taught as a practical application in Shorin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo Seiyo Kai.|
