Kobudō (Japanese: 古 武 道, Kobudō) is a collective name for the modern (post 1900) form of classical Japanese martial art of the island of Okinawa. Contrary to popular belief, are not kobudō weapons derived from farm tools.
Farmers did not have the time or energy to delve into the use of tools for martial arts. Furthermore, a citizen with this kind of tool could not play much against a trained professional fighter with real weapons. Kobudo is formed by sophisticated techniques that arose within the Aji, nobility, and techniques adopted from China.
Some examples of Kobudo weapons are: – Bo 183 cm long stick. – The sai: small trident whose middle “tooth” is significantly longer than the other two. – The nunchaku / ssang yjel bong: two poles which are connected by means of chain to each other. – The kama: scythe-shaped wooden weapon. – The tonfa 45 cm long stick (looks a bit like a police baton) – Longbow: stick, about as long as a Katana, but of wood without “sword forms” – Katana: sword – Tambo: small 45 cm long stick, a bit like a shortened Bo.
