Michigan Suibukan - Shorin-Ryu, Kobudo and Suikendo

The Library

The following are materials owned by people in the dojo who graciously make them available to borrow. Note that not all the material is appropriate for all levels of students. I.E. If you're a white belt, you really don't need to read 'Dynamic Nunchaku' unless you have a penchant for nasty bruises. Just ask the owner if you can borrow it, and they'll know what's appropriate.
