The main weapons taught in Seidokan Karate are the Bo (known as 'Kun' in the Okinawan dialect), the Kama, Sai, and the Tonfa (or Tuifa in Uchinanguchi, the dialect of the Okinawans). (See the Weapons Page for the kata list.) The Nunchaku are also taught, though traditionally there are no kata for this weapon. (However, some systems, such as the Matsubayashi Ryu and Ryukyu Kempo have formulated kata for the nunchaku in an effort to preserve the authentic techniques, as opposed to the flashy slight-of-hand flipping that most backyard and modern sport practitioners are known for.) There are also the Iai (sword drawing) kata taught at the master level.
