Kobujitsu or Kobudo The Okinawan term for fighting with weapons. Once a weapon is picked up, the art is no longer karate because the hands are no longer empty.

When Japan conquered Okinawa in the 1600s, the emperor forced the people to give up all weapons. Having no way to defend themselves against the Samurai, they developed ways of using farm or fishing implements for weapons. Most of the traditional martial arts weapons are still used for farming or fishing to this day.
