Zanshin Kobudo is a defensive weapons system that uses sticks of varying lengths and walking sticks for self-defence. This enables a student to be able to pick up a stick of any size and use it to defend themselves. In the higher grades, students learn to use improvised objects such as books, ties, handbags etc for self-defence.
The advantage of this is that you don't have to carry special weapons that are illegal. The techniques used are taken from a variety of systems and organisations including but not limited to, Karate, Hapkido, Jiu-Jitsu and Kali.
Zanshin Kobudo is no longer offered in class at AACD. It may be taught upon private request. Later, Kobudo may be offered as part of Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo Jutsu.
