Finding hanbo training
Hello everyone

Can anyone tell me where hanbo or alternatively walking-stick training is available in the UK? I live in Nottingham, and I have searched extensively to no effect.

Many thanks

At your service

Have you tried the local Bujinkan?

Or Escrima?

What about the Okinawan Kobudo in Sutton-in-Ashfield?

Some jujitsu schools might teach hanbo too. Or if not, something similar, but you'd have to work out the principle essence of the techniques yourself.

Both Shinto Muso Ryu and Kukishin Ryu teach hanbo within their curriculae. There are certainly some folks doing SMR in the UK, probably someone doing Kukishin.

John Goss just published a book on the subject, available on Amazon. You can check here...

Salvaging an old thread here:

Last week, I had the opportunity to train with a Hontai Yoshin Ryu club in Bayreuth and learned that the HYR includes some very interesting hanbo sets. Look here for more info:
