The process began around 8 months before with the Lars Andersen Sensei’s designation of the Copenhagen hombu dojo instructor Jan Overgaard, as tutor and guide in the training process and the assimilation of new technical standards by the author. Kihon, katas, bunkai and philosophy were and part of the training to this day.

One of the main objectives that motivated the journey to Denmark of the author, has been the search for growth and deepening the learning of Martial Art. Kobudo has been a concern that Seishinkan has had over the past few years; the intention to find a link with Okinawa and to deepen the practice of the management of traditional weapons has motivated to establish contact with the organization Tokushin Ryu in Europe, directed by Sensei Lars Andersen and to begin thus an arduous way of practice and investigation.

 

Tokushin Ryu Kobudo corresponds to the system created by the master Kensho Tokumura who, after 50 years of combined training of Karate & Kobudo, decides to develop his own system based on his experience, learning and own vision. Tokushin Ryu Kobudo is an eclectic system that is based on the traditional weapons of Okinawa which emphasizes powerful technique utilizing ‘Chinkuchi’. It is a blend of traditional Kobudo weapons and includes obscure weapons that were in danger of becoming historically lost.
