The Kobudo program at THE DOJO teaches Ryukyu Kobudo. This traditional kobudo class emphasises proper technique, focus, concentration, and respect when using the weapons. Rank in Kobudo is separate from the Karate rank. Frank Hargrove teaches real koryu Ryukyu Kobudo that is used against the Japanese Samurai sword not the weak display kobudo taught by most karate school to display the Ryukyu Kobudo weapons. Each weapon is used to develop combat techniques against a swordsman who knows how to use the sword. This requires that every student also learn the shoden level of Muso Zenshin-Ryu Kenjitsu.
