Though not as flashy or as glamorous as the nunchaku, the tonfa is nevertheless an important tool in the kobudo tradition. Two tonfa in the hands of an expert make a poetic and graceful contribution to the art of kata. The tonfa is also an excellent tool for the development of stronger hands and wrists, essential for achieving necessary power in blocking and striking in empty-hand techniques. This is where the tonfa is particularly desirable in practice over such weapons as the bo or nunchaku. In this section, a basic introduction to the tonfa is provided. It is recommended that a karate student not begin practice with this or other kobudo implements until he or she has had at least several years of karate training. Fumio Demura, 5th Dan began his martial arts training during his grammar school years, studying kendo to build up his strength and improve his health. Concurrently, he developed a keen interest -in all martial arts, including the use of weapons such as the bo, the sai, the tonfa, the kama and the nunchaku. These weaponry techniques he studied while under the tutelage of Mr. Kenshin Taira and Mr. Ryusho Sakagami. Noted in Japan as an outstanding karateka, Mr. Demura has been honored by martial artists and government officials such as the Minister of Education. He directs the U.S. division of the Japan Karate Federation. 1. Introduction to the Tonfa 2. Tonfa Stances 3. Karate and Tonfa Similarities 4. Tonfa Striking Techniques 5. Self-Defense Applications
