Ryu Kon Kai Organization

Ryu Kon Kai Association has devoted itself to the practice and training of various martial arts; Bo, sai, Tonfa, Nunchaku, Kama, and Eku, because the association regards Kobudo as a traditional Budo just like Karate.
Ryu Kon Kai stresses the importance of the skill of perfect self-defense and the power to kill the opponent with a blow and urges the members to master them through the hard and severs training of one Kata after another. At the same time, the association emphasizes the
importance of acquiring the mental and spiritual power - the sense of life and death - through the training. The beauty of Kata of Budo is developed into the higher level of beauty and power only through the stability and smooth movement of the lower part of the body.
The mere acceptance of the traditional Kata may cause the danger of distorting the
fundamental ideas and principles of Kata. The Katas of Karate and Kobudo are inevitably essential to Budo seeing from the historical point of view. Up until 40 years ago, each master learned only one kata and took it to a country and taught it there. Those masters were quite old and also because they were dispersed around the island, it was quite difficult to collect the Katas of the masters.
The Katas were, however, finally collected and the collection of the Katas became the
foundation of the Ryu Kon Kai. That was how Ryu Kon Kai is proud of proclaiming that all the members of the Association have been devoting themselves in training and mastering Kobudo days and nights and also trying their best to properly inherit the traditional value of Budo - Okinawa's valuable cultural legacy - and seeking the best way to hand the legacy down to future generations. It is the purpose of this organization to encourage education and cultural exchange between the island of Okinawa and members of the OKINAWA KARATE KOBUDO KOKUSAI TOMO NO KAI. Since becoming a prefecture of Japan, Okinawa has been steadily losing it’s identity as a distinct and separate culture. It’s fusion into Japanese culture has been an area of concern to many Okinawans. To assist in the preservation of distinct Okinawan culture, the common bond of Okinawan Martial Arts will be used by the Association as a vehicle for knowledge, friendship, co-operation, and cultural exchange between it’s members and the island of Okinawa.
