Bunkai is a demonstration of how the movements in a kata can be used in actual combat. The demonstration here shows how sai can be used to defend against a sword. #martialart #martialarts #kobudo #koburyu #ssdportage #ssd #southsidedojo

Sometimes seeing the reward is the proper motivation for testing #karateka. #ssd #southsidedojo #karate #koburyu #martialarts

Testing is a chance for students to formally display what they know and to show the hard work they have been doing. Congrats to our young #karateka for testing so courageously! #karate #koburyu #martialarts #ssdportage #ssd

In #karate, breaking boards is not just a show of strength. It has to do with good technique, focus and self-belief. We try to teach kids all of these important lessons for life on and off the #dojo floor. #ssdportage #southsidedojo #koburyu #karate

Part of #karatedo is #bunkai. The purpose of bunkai is to show the practical application of techniques shown in #kata. At advanced levels, #koburyu #karate encourages #karateka to explore their own interpretations of bunkai. #southsidedojo #ssd #ssdportage #martialarts

One of the 13 weapons in #koburyu #kobudo is the #kama. Kama are like handheld scythes, usually used in pairs, and displayed here in a #kata. #ssdportage #ssd #martialarts

Traditional #okinawian #karate places emphasis on manners, respect, self-improvement and humility. Getting to hit people in the face is just a bonus :) #southsidedojo #ssdportage #martialarts #koburyu
