With this in-depth instructional series, Eihachi Ota, Hanshi 9th Dan, aims to teach the fundamentals of Okinawan Kobudo (weapons). This 30-minute DVD will introduce the basic techniques and applications of the Tunfa. The goal for each DVD is to teach the Karate practitioner the fundamentals of Okinawan Kobudo and, most importantly, to emphasize safety measures and safe training habits. To avoid using a bland watch-and-learn approach, we attempted to layer Sensei Ota’s teachings with multi-camera set-ups, extended exercise/technique footage, and interactive menus so that the practitioner, in essence, could follow Sensei Ota and train as they watch the DVD.
