Tonfa, Karate Weapon of Self Defense

by

Tonfa, Karate Weapon of Self Defense Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though neither as flashy nor as glamorous as the nunchaku, the tonfa is an essential tool in the kobudo tradition of self-defense. When wielded properly, this deceptively simple weapon becomes a graceful and poetic extension of the martial artists open-hand techniques. By following the detailed photos and instructions in this classic text, one can unleash the true power of this ancient weapon and training tool. Practicing with the tonfa will improve balance, coordination, and strength.

Synopsis:

In this fully illustrated book, Fumio Demura explores the full range of tonfa tactics including stances, karate and tonfa similarities, tonfa striking techniques and self-defense applications. Demura is a member of Black Belt's Hall of Fame.
