Kobudo (the ancient martial way) is the art of Okinawan weaponry.
In the 1600’s the emperor placed a ban on the possession of weapons. The Okinawan people were forced through circumstance, to arm themselves with what they had available. They developed a form of self defense using fishing and farming tools, water carrying poles, boat oars, mill handles, sickles and rice flails.
