Ryukyu Kobudo

The practice of the ancient art of Okinawa weaponry.

Ryukyu Kobudo is the practice of the ancient art of Okinawa weaponry. This dates back to 1609, when the Satsuma Clan invaded the Ryukyu Kingdom and subsequently banned the use of weaponry. This action forced the Okinawan people to develop their own form of weapons, from practical utensils, as well as develop a strong, effective art of Kobudo.
