At the end of each program, a technician can take exams leading to certification in their specialty. The techniques apply to virtually all types of fiberglass molding including aerospace, automotive, and industrial and crafts. You will see a complete demonstration of molding a model aircraft cowling. A kit cowling is developed into a plug that is used to construct the mold. A fiberglass cowling is then laid up in the mold and released.

A nunchaku is two sections of wood or metal in modern incarnations connected by a cord or chain. But others suggest the weapon was indigenous to Okinawa and there may have been a parallel evolution of weapons in other Asian countries. Leather cords are used for practice or kumite, whereas chains are favored for demonstration, but rope most commonly of hemp was the original material used. So what is a tonfa? The tonfa can also be wielded in such a way as to use the knob as a striking implement similar to a okbudo.

The spearhead then protrudes from the shaft and can be found in many differing designs varying from spears to short swords and machete-style implements.
The same strikes and blocks used in kobudo are used in karate with some minor modifications. With the close relationship between China and Okinawa any connection between kobdo two countries must always be considered. Watch out for that tonfa!

Its length is determined by measuring from the tip of the elbow to the wrist. Weapons similar to the tonfa are found in other Asian countries including China, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.
