BLACK BELT: Go here to read “Fumio Demura: Karate Master, Kobudo Weapons Expert, BlackBelt Hall of Famer.”

M Katrin Daria: I remember early in kobudo, I kept dropping the sai into my toes and asked: “Can’t I train with rubber ones?” LOL. Sensei said: “No. Pain is how you learn not to drop them.” He was, of course, a Jedi. Lorenzo Chukwuebuk­a Obi: Hit my balls with the nunchaku. Didn’t pick it up [again for] some time.
