Okinawa Kobudo Australia
Kobudo is the study of the ancient weapons of Okinawa. Kyoshi Brian Hayes holds a 6th degree black belt in Kobudo, which he has studied since meeting Shinpo Matayoshi in the mid 1990’s. The program offers study in the traditional weapons such as bo, sai, tunkwa, nunchaku, kama, eku and other traditional Okinawan weapons. With one of the largest traditional weapons schools in Australia, we offer expert and safe tuition in these fascinating Okinawan weapons. Kyoshi Hayes also holds an instructor licence in Philipine arnis, so students also enjoy modules of study in stick self defence.
Kobudo Pandas Junior Program
The Kobudo Panda’s program is offered for 6-12 year olds. They will improve their spatial awareness, coordination, strength and stability, ability to remember patterns and focus for sustained length of time. The Panda’s learn the same traditional Okinawan weapons as the adults on a simplified curriculum to allow them to work through a belt rank system. We have a lot of fun in our classes which are available at Warners Bay, Waratah, Morisset, Redhead and Greenhills.
