Hanbojutsu

In addition to empty hand jujutsu, several weapons are commonly employed with jujutsu including the hanbo (3-foot staff), manriki (rope or chain), hojojutsu (rope restraints), kobuton (short stick), kibo (expandable baton), tsue (cane), tanto (knife), katana (samurai sword), yari (spear), naginata (sword on a bo), bo (long stick or 6-foot staff).

These are taught to students in our Samurai Arts classes at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate in Mesa and Gilbert, Arizona, and are taught to students worldwide in the Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai system.  Soke Hausel, 12th dan, added these arts to the Seiyo Shorin-Ryu system over the past several years to be sure our students received a well-rounded education in martial arts.
