WAS KOBUDO EVER USED IN WAR?
Kobudo was only created in the twentieth century and the kobujutsu techniques were unlikely to have been used in WW2. Although the bayonet drills are very close to some staff techniques and Shinpo did say that his martial arts had kept him alive during the World War. So it is hard to say for certain. We
Kobudo is developed from the historical fighting arts of the Ryukyu Kingdom (15-19 century). Certainly, in the past, fighting techniques (in military circles) will have been practised and taught.
But how similar are the techniques of then...with the techniques of now? This is a question each responsible Kobudo student should ask themselves regularly.
Mataysohi Shinpo wrote that to understand Kobujutsu, one must understand what it means to exist between life and death. This is how the forefathers lived, the men who created the kata we're 'bushi' or warrior men.
To get close to their mindset we must train with imagination and passion, in the hope that through hard and diligent practice, they truth will reveal itself.
