This class was designed to introduce our teenage kids to the use of the Jo (short staff) and the Bokken (wooden sword) at a level that they could understand.

However, we have also invited the adults to attend this class as well in order to assist the teen age kids during class.

The emphasis on the class is basic jo suburi (jo technique) and building of the 50 jo suburi kata (this kata was invented and created by Reynosa Shihan). Additionally, to understand basic bokken suburi and then progressing into the kumitachi (partner practice with a bokken).

The dynamic of having teenagers and adults has been very successful.
