Okinawan Kobudo

Ryukyu Kobujutsu

The art of Okinawan weapons, Kobudo or more appropriately Kobujutsu practiced by the Hozonkai is two fold;

The first system is from the Kanagusuku Lineage, it is sometimes referred to as Ufuchiku Kobudo. This little known art was founded by an Okinawan named, Kanagushiku Sanda (1841-1920) or in Japanese, Kinjo Sanda. He was a police commissioner (Ufuchiku) by trade, hence the name of the style. He was a student of, Bushi Matsumura and Matsu Higa. He also acquired much of his weapons knowledge on the streets of Okinawa dealing with criminals. He was also the bodyguard to the last Okinawan king, Sho Tai.  This is a rare system and rarely taught even in Okinawa. The art was passed down to Shosei Kina Soke who was the teacher of Shinyei Kyan, Masanobu Kina, Kaishu Isa and Kiichi Nakamoto. Jones Sensei was a direct and senior student of Kiichi Nakamoto Soke.

The second system is from the Matayoshi Lineage, commonly refered too as Matayoshi Kobudo. This is a popular system on Okinawa founded by Shinko Matayoshi and organized and propularized by his son, Shinpo Matayoshi. Shinpo Matayoshi passed the style through his Kodokan Dojo, as well as, the Zen OKinawa Kobudo Renmei. He had several well know students, his most senior student was Shusei Maeshiro who in turn taught Josei Yogi. Jones Sensei is a direct student of Yogi Sensei, who is president of the Okinawa Kobudo Rensekai.
