Sydney Kobudo – December 21, 2014

Kobudo training in Sydney wrapped up for 2014 on the 21st of December.

The December classes had been focused on revising the Sydney group’s entire repertoire of weapons – Bo, Sai, Eeku, Jō, Kama and other traditional weapons – and the various Kata.

2014 had been a year of consolidating knowledge after the 2013 Okinawan trip, focusing on perfecting technique and honing application. Some new Kobudo grades were awarded in August as a reflection of the consistent, hard training.

There will be a group trip to Okinawa in March 2015, including further training with Sensei Tetsuhiro Hokama (10th Dan).

Sydney Kobudo classes resume January 11, 2015.
