Matayoshi Kobudo Shinbukai Hojo Undo
Kata videos are meant to help students practice on their own and used as a reference, not to replace a kobudo instructor. All videos represent Matayoshi Kobudo Shinbukai, based in Naha - Okinawa, Japan. Richard Bennett is an instructor for the Shinbukai, and a registered dojo of the Matayoshi Kobudo Shinbukai in Okinawa.
Bo Hojo Undo: There are 3 bo hojo undo in Matayoshi Kobudo. These are required for kyu ranks, and done randomly in Japanese for shodan. There are 3 different versions to do kobudo hojo undo; forwards and backwards, in place, and with a mawate (turn).
Matayoshi Kobudo Shinbukai trains all 3 versions, but students are tested on performance with a mawate.
