Traditional karate and kobudo in Arizona
Kobudo night is every Thursday evening at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate (also known as the Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai Hombu) in Mesa across the street from Gilbert in the East Valley of Phoenix. We also add a little kobudo training on Wednesday self-defense nights.

In August of 2011, we began teaching the tonfa at the dojo in Mesa along with the bo and katana. At the end of May, 2012, several of our students had developed expertise with the tonfa.

And we are continuing to practice our nunchaku kata along with nunchaku bunkai (practical self-defense applications). In April, 2012, we added saijutsu training at our dojo.  Sai training has coninued into 2013. Sometime during mid-year, we will switch our focus to bo and eku (iiku).
