Outstanding Training and Instruction


The World Karate Kobudo Jiu-Jitsu Organization provides certification and training for practitioners and Instructors in Ryu Kyu Kobudo,  Ryu Kyu Karate, Jiu Jitsu, and Self-Defense. 

All Programs have been designed to serve as stand alone programs for Individuals, Martial Arts Instructors, and or Martial Arts Organizations seeking to enhance their martial arts programs by adopting relevant  knowledge and application through innovative curriculum which scaffolds learning for all.  

The Kobudo/Weapons and Karate Programs through the WKKJO and the kata represented on the instructional videos, slide shows, and documents serve as a reference for those in the Global Martial Arts Community who desire to maintain the unchanged Kobudo and Karate Kata as they were taught by Seikichi Odo (1926-2002) to our Director - Simon Sherbourne (1967-).

These instructional materials and curriculum have been designed by Simon Sherbourne (Director WKKJO, M.Ed., 7th Dan RHKKF, Senior Student of the late Seikichi Odo: July 26, 1926 – March 24, 2002). 

Mr. Sherbourne has been an international competitor since 1984 and continues to participate in demonstrations and host seminars annually. He teaches martial arts at Sherbourne Martial Arts Academy in a humble training facility in London, Ontario, Canada throughout the year and conducts seminars for interested parties. e-mail:

It is most important that each program should be learned as distributed. Each is progressive in skill and knowledge.   Keep in mind that Kobudo is generally learned in tandem with Karate.   Therefore basic stances and posture are a pre-requisite for learning Kobudo (one should have a good grasp of these skills before starting Kobudo training).

It is also important that you understand how you are being evaluated so that you can set your goals accordingly. Director Sherbourne has put together a Set of Basics outlined on the Basics Check List that you are required to complete within ten minutes. Kyoshi demonstrates all of the basics on video for you in sequence. Basics are then contained in all sections up to the Black Belt requirements, and should be further developed over time.

Each of the evaluations will be based on the Basics Check List and the Kata Rubric (this will be emailed to you when you upload video of yourself for evaluation) which analyze each Kata. You will receive feedback after each evaluation which will determine if you progress to the next level, or required remediation. Successful practitioners will receive a Belt and Certificate in the mail.  Either way, you will be improving.  This is the key…
