At Fernandina Dojo LLC, students will study the art of Kobudo (Ancient Martial Way). The traditional Okinawan weapons are blended into the standard Karate/Tae Kwon Do curriculum and cover such items as the bo (long staff), tonfa/tuifa (short handle), sai (truncheon), kama (hand sickle), and nunchaku (wooden flail).
These are not found in modern day America (or Okinawa). However, the ability to see an ordinary object and utilize it as a means of self-defense is highly practical. Like in much of our study of martial arts, it's the method not the means.
