History of Okinawan KenpoOkinawan Kenpo is a term that dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. It is oftenused as a generic term to describe all of the Okinawan Karate styles. During the early 1950's,this term came into use to describe a particular style, the karate being taught by MasterShigeru Nakamura.Master Nakamura was born on Jan. 20, 1894. His karate training started while he wasattending Icchu Middle School in Shuri. It was here that both Kanryo Higashionna (18451915) and Chomo Hanashiro (1830-1945) were karate instructors. Yasutune Itosu (18301915) as well as Kentsu Yabu (1863-1937) also made visits to the school. Upon graduationfrom middle school, Nakamura Sensei returned to Nago City where he continued his trainingunder Shinkichi Kunioshi. In 1953, Nakamura Sensei opened his own dojo in Nago Citywhere he called his form of karate “Okinawan Kenpo;” he became famous for his introductionof “bogu gear,” protective equipment permitting full-contact sparring.Seikichi Odo, whose name means "world walker" in Japanese, was born in Okinawanin 1923. Of samurai descent, he was small in stature and introverted as a youth, making himthe target of much teasing and practical jokes from older boys. At age 9, Odo began martialarts training in Judo but found this style to be ill suited to his particular tastes. At age 13, Odomet Koho Kuba of Kawasald, Okinawa. Kuba Sensei taught Odo the art of Okinawan-te. Atthe age of 20, Odo began to study Okinawan Kobudo. He was soon to fall in love with theweapons arts, and he studied them voraciously to ensure the preservation of the old ways.Over time, Odo's kobudo instructors included Mitsuo Kakazu, Kenko Nakaima, Matayoshi,and Seike Toma, some of the leading practitioners in Okinawa At 23, Odo began to studykarate under Nakamura Sensei. Odo studied kobudo with Mitsuo Kakazu and karate andkobudo with Seike Toma, who was a senior student of Chotoku Kyan (1880-1945). However,Odo Sensei Master Nakamura to have been his primary instructor and mentor. It was duringhis studies with Master Nakamura that Nakamura Sensei asked Odo to incorporate kobudowith Nakamura’s own karate teachings.During the last few years of Nakamura’s life, Odo began to undertake the teachingresponsibilities of the dojo. Sensei Odo began to fully incorporate kobudo training with theOkinawan Kenpo Karate system in the mid 1970’s. In July of 1983, Master Odo restructuredthe Okinawan Kenpo Karate-Kobudo Association, renaming it the Okinawan Kenpo KarateKobudo Federation. Master Odo’s OKKKF teaches a total of 48 katas: 18 open hand forms,and 30 weapons katas. In October of 1997, OKKKF was renamed RYUKYU HON KENPOKOBUJUTSU FEDERATION, of which DeValentino Sensei (Sensei Dave’s instructor)retired as technical advisor in 1998, continuing as a licensed instructor and preserving theancient arts through DeValentino Shudokan Schools International.

DOJO ETIQUETTEA bow is a sign of respect. Always execute a standing bow when entering and leaving the dojo. Ifyou are in the dojo, and Sensei Dave or another black belt enters the dojo, the senior kyu (color belt)will call out, “Sensei ni mawate” (turn toward sensei), followed by “Sensei ni rei.” All students willthen come to attention and bow.Always address black belts, (showing respect for their rank) and adults, (showing respect for theirage), with "Yes Sir/Ma’am" and "No Sir/Ma’am."Your gi (uniform) is a symbol of the way you feel about yourself and karate. It should always bekept clean and in good condition. You should only wear your gi in the dojo, or perhaps in transit tothe dojo; you should never wear your obi (belt) outside of the dojo. It is a symbol of yourachievements, and should be treated with respect. It should never fall to the floor or be washed.When lining up to begin class, black belts will line up in parallel lines by dan (black belt) ranks. Allkyu ranks will form a line behind and parallel to the shodan (black belt) line. Kyu ranks should lineup from right to left in kyu order, starting with 1st degree brown belts, and descending to white belts.Once students are in line, the senior instructor will either initiate formal kneeling bows (seiza) orinformal standing bows (tachi rei). First the instructor will recite, "shome ni rei," which initiates abow to the dojo. Second, if the sensei is present, "sensei ni rei" will be recited, initiating a bow forthe Sensei of the school. Thirdly, the instructor will say "senpai ni rei," and a bow will be executedfor the black belts, and finally the instructor will say “otaga ni rei," and everyone will bow, showingrespect for their fellow classmates. At the end of class, the same procedure of bows will be repeated.SPARRING (Kumite)Sparring (kumite) is not only a part of our curriculum, but it is also a part of traditional karate. Thisis the time to practice all of the kihons you have learned, and it is an opportunity to overcome anyfear or anxiety you may have about kumite as well. Below is a list of rules you must follow duringkumite:1. All students must wear protective gear including: headgear, hand pads, foot pads, mouth piece,and cup (male). We usually have a limited amount of extra sparring gear in the dojo; however,all students are highly encouraged to purchase their own sparring gear.2. All strikes are to be controlled and focused. (Remember, we are here to work with and learnfrom each other—not to injure our fellow karate-ka).3. Strikes are to the mid section only for ranks below green belt.4. Green, brown, and black belt students may strike to the head however the strike MUST becontrolled, pulled, and focused, and advanced students may never use head strikes against nonadvanced students.5. Foot sweeps are allowed for all ranks.6. Kumite rules vary from tournament to tournament. Remember that the rules that apply in thedojo may not necessarily be the same as those you must adhere to in competition.
