Matayoshi Kobudo and Uechi Ryu Seminars
Featuring Sensei Itokazu Seisho
Itokazu Seisho was the chief instructor for the Matayoshi Kodokan from 2002 - 2014. Currently he runs his own organization called Matayoshi Kobudo Shinbukai. The Seibukan dojo in Naha is the headquarters for both his kobudo and Uechi Ryu organization, Konan Ryu founded by his father Itokazu Seiki.
Itokazu sensei will be running 3 days of intensive kobudo training in Colorado September 13, 14, and 15th, with a Uechi Ryu training session September 17th. He will also be running a 2 day kobudo training seminar in Michigan September 21 and 22, with a Uechi Ryu training session September 20th.
During all kobudo training sessions, Itokazu sensei will be teaching under black belt hojo undo, kata, and bunkai for bo, sai, tonkua, and nunchaku. However, we will also be covering other weapons that participants might be training as well including sansetsukon, eku, nunti bo, tinbei, and kama.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own weapons, but should contact the dojo if they might need to borrow weapons to use for the seminars.
