The Kobudo System


The Kobudo System we use in Jiu-Jitsu IBF is based upon the Weapon system training developed and promoted by the great Karate and Kobudo expert sensei Fumio Demura.

The sword work is much inspired by sensei Toshishiro Obata of the Toyama Ryu methods and his style of Samurai Aiki-Jujutsu.

This has now been combined and is the Jiu-Jitsu IBF style I refer to as the complete 'Kano Jiu-Jitsu'

Dr. Jigaro Kano was first and foremost a master of Jiu-Jitsu and if you by chance read the The Complete Kano Jiu-Jitsu by H Irving Hancock & Katsukuma Higashi first published in 1905, I believe in my own personal opinion you will grasp the concept of pure Jiu-Jitsu.
