We were invited by Yugoslav Goju ryu association to demonstrate traditional Shorin ryu and Matayoshi kobudo. There were many other martial artists – Goju ryu karate, Shotokan karate, Ninjutsu, Aikido, Brasilian jujutsu, Kyokushin, Taekwondo, Kendo…

kobudo demo2

For the first time traditional kobudo was demonstrated in Belgrade. We demonstrated 6 different kobudo weapons – bo, nunchaku, sai, tonfa, kama and tinbei. All kobudo weapons were never presented in Yugoslavia before!

nunchaku demo

After that, we performed Matayoshi nunchaku kata and some self-defense techniques. Unfortunately, there is no photos of kumite techniques, we were so fast that no one could take a picture. :)
