It is no exaggeration to say that, in Ryukyu Kobudo, Bojutsu is Kihon and Ogi (“inner teachings”). These techniques, seemingly simple, contain for that very reason many tricks, and if you relax your attention even slightly, an immediate weakening of strikes and thrusts may result. Most of the Bujutsu of mainland Japan were composed based on the principles of Kenjutsu, and the techniques are performed as though they were being done against Kenjutsu. In the same way, the principles of the greater part of the Bukijutsu of Ryukyu Kobudo were created to be used against Bojutsu. There is a prominent theory that the Sai was originally a Buddhist implement from India. Also, the character for Sai means a hairpin.In the Ryukyu Kingdom Period, there were mobile Ufuchiku inspectors, like our modern-day police inspectors, and in the same way that the magistrates of the mainland had Jutte, it’s said that it was used in this way as a symbol of their position. Nunchaku Jutsu is a Bujutsu that took an implement of daily Okinawan life, and was mainly used for self-defence situations among the farming class. Because of this, inasmuch as Nunchaku movement was passed down as tradition, it’s said that there are no such things as traditional “Kata.”
