RyuKyu Kobujutsu

 

In this workshop we will let you experience how it is to practise Kobujutsu by teaching you some basic techniques with the Bo. You also can feel how some of the other weapons feel like.

Ryukyu Kobujutsu, the ancient martial art of the Ryukyu Islands, consists of "Toshu-jutsu" (empty hand techniques) and "Emono-jutsu" (weapon techniques). Nowadays they are generally considered as two different arts - "Karate" and "Ryukyu Kobujutsu".
Karate is well known throughout the world, but Kobujutsu not so. This is a shame because Kobujutsu too is a beautiful martial art.

In Kobujutsu eight kinds of weapons are used: Bo, Sai, Tonfa, Nunchaku, Kama, Tekko, Tinbe and Surujin. Each weapon with its own characteristics.

With this workshop, we would like to give you the opportunity to experience how it is to practise Kobujutsu by teaching you some basic techniques with the Bo. You also can feel how some of the other weapons feel like.

Being a blackbelt and former Dutch champion in Kobujutsu, Andras Dobos, the chief instructor of Andi-do, knows a lot about this sport. Although at Andi-do this sport is not regularly taught, if enough people are interested, we can start a group.
Lu Gia Jen however is the Dojo where Andras Dobos has learned Kobujutsu and where great instructors teach it 3 times a week. Therefore, this workshop is given in collaboration with Lu Gia Jen. Several former training partners of Andras who are also blackbelts and former Dutch champions will assist Andras in showing you how to handle the weapons.

The workshop will be fit for everyone, also people who have no experience with martial arts at all. There are no physical requirements other than being able to hold a weapon.

If you would like to know more about Kobujutsu or the other sports that are taught at Andi-do or Lu Gia Jen you can take a look at these websites:
