For members of Seiyo no Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai, learning tonfa is important and is considered to be an extension of our martial arts system. Members train in three tonfa kata and must learn all of the bunkai (applications in the kata) along with kumite. The kumite typically matches tonfa against other kobudo weapons such as bo, kama, tanto, etc.
