Okinawan Martial Arts today performed a karate demonstration in Burlington, WI.
The demonstration was part of a Martial Arts open house hosted by Veneration BJ and Karate 360 which share a studio in the Racine/Walworth County area.
The demonstration showcased classical Shōrin-Ryū kata or ‘forms’ (as some martial arts refer to them) and weapons combat or kobudō with traditional Okinawan weapons like the bō. The demonstration ended with free-sparring as well as some opportunity for guests to ask questions and participate in a few simple exercises.
Instructors from Okinawan Martial Arts lead the demonstration along with adult and junior students from the karate school in Lannon, WI.
A Brazilian Jiu Jitsu demonstration followed afterwards as well.
