MATAYOSHI KOBUDO

Our Kobudo program welcomes all students from beginners to Black Belt

Kobudo is the ancient art of Okinawan weaponry. At BBMA, we teach the skill handed down from the Matayoshi family since the early 1900s. Training in Kobudo will improve body strength, balance, coordination, dexterity and cardiovascular fitness. While the variety of weapons taught and the drills of weapon against weapon make the art appealing to all ages, Kobudo is a low-impact activity which makes it ideal for anyone who has always wanted to study a martial art but thought they couldn’t because of age or chronic injury. 

Traditional Kobudo is foremost an art, rich in exciting history and culture. The practical and philosophical aim is to unite the body and mind. Training the physical movements to the correct standard of execution requires effort and concentration and, in this way, becomes moving meditation which stills the mind and balances the emotions. 

We teach traditional Okinawan weapons: bo, sai, tunkwa (tonfa), nunchaku, eku,  kama, kua and tinbe.

  • Effective, low-impact exercise

BBMA North Lakes is AWESOME. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. It is a wonderful atmosphere. My daughter has been attending the Tiny Dragons class since October last year and she has learnt so much and absolutely loves it.  I can't speak more highly of them!
