View Full Version : Yakaa no Tonfa

2nd September 2008, 15:48

I've got a question about the kata "Yakaa no Tonfa" in some german books is this kata mentioned but not in which style it is trained. I've look at the Taira-Akamine and Taira-Inoue Linage and which kata's are trained there, and to Matayoshi Kobudo but dont find it there. And over google I also dont get many hits.
Can anybody tell, in which school it is taught? And what the origin of the kata is?

Thanks for your help,

Hi Thomas; there is also a Yakaa no Sai. Maybe from the same group. So you have 2 Yakaa to maybe track the Yakaa no Tonfa back to.
thank you

Hello Bill,

I'll now the "Yakaa no Sai" and it isn't trained by the same groupe as the "Yakaa no Tonfa". The "Yakaa no Sai" is trained at the Taira-Akamine and Taira-Inoue Linage.

But thanks for the idea.
