Okinawa Kobudo for the Entire Family

Okinawan Kobudō refers to the weapon systems of ancient Okinawan martial arts. It is a popular story that Okinawan farming and fishing tools evolved into weapons due to restrictions placed upon the peasants by the Satsuma samurai clan when the island of Okinawa was made a part of Japan, which forbade them from carrying arms.

Okinawan kobudō systems were shaped by indigenous Okinawan techniques that arose within noble class, and by imported methods from China and Southeast Asia. The majority of Okinawan Kobudō traditions that survived the difficult times during and following World War II were preserved and handed down by Taira Shinken (Ryukyu Kobudo) and Shinko Matayoshi (Matayoshi Kobudo). Other noted masters who developed Okinawan Kobudō include Shigeru Nakamura, Shinpo Matayoshi and Seikichi Odo, among others.

Shihan Cruz is a fantastic instructor for our son! He provides excellent communication and feedback about class and test schedules as well as taking great personal interest in the training of each of his students. He sets a great example of personal character for everyone in his class. He is the best martial arts instructor we have ever worked with!

My 15 years old son, 12 years old daughter and I started Karate classes with Shihan Jose Juan Cruz about 2 months ago. He can definitely teach in a way that is easy to understand and follow and is interesting for all ages. My kids and I don’t just learn the tradition of Karate but also get a good work out, learn self defense and bond over a common interest at the same time. We always look forward to the next class, I highly recommend him as a Sensei for any age student.

I spent five months at this Dojo, and it was the most fun I had had in a long time. Sensei Cruz is a very patient instructor, who taught me much in my limited stay. I definitely will be recommending this Dojo to everyone I know.
