Kobudo (weapons training) that developed along side of karate encompasses the use of the weapon of the Okinawan people during a time when bladed-edged weapons were banned. During this ban, the Okinawan people utilized every-day farming and fishing tools for self-defense. The Ryu Kyu Kobudo is the original weapons system of Okinawa with its roots tracing back over 400 years. The Tesshinkan officially began May 22, 1999, following the death of Akamine Eisuke Dai, Sensei of the Ryu Kyu Kobudo Hozon Shinko Kai, and is dedicated to purveying traditional Ryu Kyu Kobudo as it was passed from Akamine Sensei to Tamayose Hidemi Sensei
