Importance of Kobudo Kata

Kobudo Kata
Kobudo Kata is so important in any system. You learn how to combine different techniques and movements together with the weapon you are training on. It allows one to bring harmony between oneself and the weapon. The weapon becomes and extension of your body! Within Kenshin Kan we have a variety of Kobudo Katas that we are required to learn based on rank. We also ensure that each student learns the bunkai (practical application) of each technique within the kata.
