 Summary

The farmers of old Okinawa used the Tongfa in their every day life and the farming of their rice fields. You will also see the original ways they used these tools in self defence against the samurai who used the Naginata

The lineage of these forms is impeccable as they are the way Okinawan Masters Hiroshi Kinjo and Toyama Kanken taught them directly to Richard Kim in post WWII Yokohama Japan around 1952. Richard Kim learned the Naginata form Yoshida Kotaro.

Both Brian Ricci and Frank Gaviola have done a marvelous job of presenting these forms to you in the tradition of old school kobudo.

Both Gaviola and Ricci are International kata champions in traditional and open tournaments and their skill with these two weapons as well as the others is obvious when you see them perform the katas.
