Ryukyu Dento Kobujutsu
The art of Okinawan weapons, Kobudo, or more appropriately Kobujutsu practiced is from the Kanagusuku Lineage, it is sometimes referred to as Ufuchiku Kobudo. This little known art was founded by an Okinawan named, Kanagushiku Sanda (1841-1920) or in Japanese, Kinjo Sanda. He was a police commissioner (Ufuchiku) by trade, hence the name of the style. He was a student of Bushi Matsumura and Matsu Higa. He also acquired much of his weapons knowledge on the streets of Okinawa dealing with criminals. He was also the bodyguard to the last Okinawan king, Sho Tai. This is a rare system and rarely taught even in Okinawa. The art was passed down to Shosei Kina Soke who was the teacher of Shinyei Kyan, Masanobu Kina, Kaishu Isa and Kiichi Nakamoto. Our Kobudo association is the Ryukyu Dento Kobujutsu Hozan Budo Kyokai under the leadership of Kiichi Nakamoto Soke, Hanshi 10th Dan.
Sensei Sullens, our chief instructor here at Anshin Kai Martial Arts, previously trained in Kongo Ryu Kobudo under the late Sensei Howard ‘Karyim” Moore. Sensei Sullens is now transitioning our program to Ufuchiku Kobudo.

My husband and I couldn't ask for a better place to take our son. He's a little shy when it comes to new things, but he warmed up really well to the experience and the staff. Sensei Jeff is very fun and patient with all the student, yet demands respect and attention when needed to get the job done. We are very excited to continue this journey with Anshin Kai Martial Arts for a very long time. Thanks!
Karate has been so good for my 6 year old. It teaches him self control and focus, two things he needs desperately! Sensei Jeff is so patient and kind with all the kids, I am so very thankful for him!!!
I highly recommend this martial arts school. My son has only been a student here for a couple of months and his confidence is already improving. The instructors are great and very patient. This program is also much more affordable than others like it.
Excellent instructors and a great community of students!
