Martial art


Kobudo is a traditional weapons martial art from Okinawa (Japan), in which students learn to use the Bo (Staff), Sai, Tunkuwa (Tonfa) and Nunchaku.

One of the oldest martial arts systems in existence, Kobudo is taught according to the disciplines and principles of the masters from the Ryukyu Islands.

Students train in a black and white ‘Gi’ and weapons for beginners are provided.

Classes are taught by Sensei Michael Clayton.



Single session – £5


Kobudo sessions are held at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.
