HOJO UNDO

               ''basic training okinawa seishinryoku karate do''

Hojo undo, or supplementary training, is the term used in Karate to refer to training with equipment (also known as kigu undo). Since ancient times, Okinawan karateka have been using domestic tools to build up strength, develop impact power, and therefore enhance their martial practice. Using the tools is the key to developing the devastating power of Karate techniques.
