SELF DEFENSE

Women Only Tabata Based

We don’t like to admit it but there are some streets in Northern Virginia that we would rather not walk down alone at night. Usually, the thing to do is just avoid these places, but sometimes trouble comes to you. When it does, it is best to be prepared. Blue Dragon Martial Arts is here to give the women of Northern Virginia the tools they need to protect themselves when they need to.

We use the Tabata protocol for a quick and efficient workout, combined with our effective self defense curriculum. Tabata is based on 20-second intense intervals followed by 10 seconds rest for four minutes. This allows your heart rate to increase with lowered stress intervals. You can push yourself to fitness and learn self-defense all in one class. Build your cardio, increase your strength, burn calories, protect yourself and your loved ones, all in one class.

MATAYOSHI KOBUDO

Okinawan Weapons System

Matayoshi Kobudo or the weapons system developed by the Matayoshi family has been practiced as a martial arts form for more than nine generations. Shinko Matayoshi, born in 1888, is credited for progressing the art of weapons training to a very complex and sophisticated level. In his teens, Shinko began training in Kobujutsu under Master Agena Chokuho. He studied the art of the Bo, Sai, Kama, Ueku, Tonfa, and Nunchaku. During a stay in Manchuria, he traveled with a nomadic tribe and learned rope throwing and how to use a bow and arrow while on horseback. He also studied Chinese Boxing and Shorinji Kempo during his stay in China. In 1915, he was asked to demonstrate his Okinawan Kobudo weapons system to the Emperor of Japan. The emperor was greatly impressed and awarded the Matayoshi family the Royal Emblem (yellow kiku flower) to use as a logo. This symbol is still used today to represent Matayoshi Kobudo.

Shinpo Matayoshi, born in Okinawa in 1921, carried on his father's legacy. In addition to Kobudo, his training of the martial arts included Kingai Ryu (White Crane), Hakaku Kempo, Gojy Ryu, as well as other open-handed systems. Shinpo started his weapons system in Seiko Higa's Gojy Ryu dojos. Shinpo went on to establish his own school, Kodokan or "hall of the enlightened way", in memory of his father.

Shinpo concentrated on bringing the various Kobudo instructors together to help consolidate the art of weapons training and to facilitate passing this tradition on to future generations of karate-ka. Shinpo established the Ryukyu Kobudo Association in 1960. The association that Shinpo founded is active and thriving to this day, and under the leadership of Koki Miyagi is now called the Zen Okinawa Kobudo Renmei / All Okinawa Kobudo Federation.

Zen Okinawa Kobudo Renmei Shibu Dojo/ All Okinawa Kobudo Federation Branch School under Sensei Fred Peet.
