Kinjo Takashi founder of Koubu-ryu

Here’s a video of Kinjo Takashi and students demonstrating the kata applications for Koubuken (考武拳) at the Uechi-ryu Charity Demonstration. Koubuken is a kata created by Kinjo in 1998.

Kinjo, of course, is the founder of Koubu-ryu and has an interesting background having studied Uechi-ryu and Matayoshi Kobudo in the 1960s. He was one of the first instructors to teach Karate-do and Kobudo in parallel – my own teacher, Minowa sensei did the same thing with the Kobudo he learned from Taira Shinken.

Enjoy the video!
