Weapons Kidderminster

Bojutsu (Weapons)

The latest class for Young Gloves karate is Bojutsu which is a traditional weapons class. The class is open to all current blackbelt students who are training regularly within the club. Sensei Justin Thomas 5th dan teaches this martial art at Birchen Coppice School 9.00pm-9.30pm. The style is rooted in Okinawan Bojutsu. Okinawa is an outlying Japanese island, uniquely known as the birthplace of various martial arts, notably, weapons based systems.

Along with our Japanese roots, the style takes some modernistic aesthetic movements (such as a few spins), and then combines these with our combat training.

The combat section does not hail from one specific country, but rather takes some of the most common sense staff fighting movements from Asian and European fighting concepts.
