Just curious why a Chinese martial artist use a hoe that looks very much like an American hoe, but Matayoshi Kobudo uses something much closer to what an American would call a mattock.
Anyone live in Okinawa and could check out a hardware store and see if they have both?
Anyone familiar with how Okinawan agriculture might differ from Chinese?
Anyone know which style hoe is used on the main islands of Japan?
