Katori Shinto Ryu has always permitted farmers and common townspeople to study the tradition. Kusanagi no ken and other fundamental forms provide those unaccustomed to sword-handling with a basis for familiarizing themselves with the weapon. In addition to these techniques our tradition also still practices the Gokui no iaijutsu.

These techniques are secret. Everything revolves around kenjutsu techniques. Training is conducted in this way since slightly adjusting distancing and targeting makes training safer, and also ensures the forms cannot be stolen by outsiders.

Several years after commencing study of the tradition, the practitioner is introduced to the actual combative meanings and applications of the movements of the forms. These combative applications are known as kuzushi. Bojutsu techniques. Bojutsu is the art of the staff. It is sometimes mistakenly thought of as having been practiced only by warriors of low status, such as the ashigaru; however in truth, the art was a crucial study even for military commanders.

Spears were used frequently on the battlefield, and rather than being used only for thrusting, they were also used to deflect attacks sideways, or to strike from above. In some cases, spears could snap mid-shaft from the strain of such actions; the remaining shaft would then be put into application as a staff. Bojutsu, as with the tachijutsu, has kuzushi concealed within its teachings. In addition to these techniques our tradition also still practices the Gokui no bo.

Naginatajutsu is part of kenjutsu training. Omote no naginata: the basic techniques 4 kata. Naginata were used widely by foot soldiers during the Kamakura era until the rise of the spear in the Nanbokucho era. Katori Shinto ryu uses an o-naginata long glaive of the same length used by warrior-monks such as Benkei.

The naginata must be held mid-shaft in order to effectively deliver cuts with its blade and strikes with its butt. In addition to these techniques our tradition also still practices the Gokui hichijo no naginata.

These are unarmored forms of swordsmanship that characteristically involve shorter positioning and distancing. The forms and those that follow are our traditions most secret teachings. While novels note that the art of using Ryoto two swords was developed by Miyamoto Musashi, it was part of the Katori Shinto Ryu curriculum some to years prior to his birth. Training in this portion of the curriculum teachers the practitioner methods of dealing with an opponent armed with Ryoto.

When the kodachi short sword is short, correct usage ensures the weapon can be used to achieve the same distancing as the tachi.

While the spear is effective in wide spaces such as plains, it is inferior to the sword in confined spaces such as forests. As a result, the sword is used to close the distance with a polearm, such as staff, glaive, or spear.

This allows the swordsman to defeat the spear. On the battlefields of old, Jujutsu was especially useful when a warrior lost his weapon or closed to grappling range with an opponent. Bo-shuriken were an integral part of the samurai arsenal. The art of striking an opponent with these throwing spikes is taught within Katori Shinto Ryu to this day. The shuriken taught within Katori Shinto Ryu is effective within a range of around 6 meters

Kenjutsu Techniques Overview

Some modern styles of kendo and iaido that were established in the 20th century also included modern forms of kenjutsu in their curriculum. The exact activities and conventions undertaken when practicing kenjutsu vary from school to school, where the word school here refers to the practice, methods, ethics, and metaphysics of a given tradition, yet commonly include practice of battlefield techniques without an opponent and techniques whereby two practitioners perform kata featuring full contact strikes to the body in some styles and no body contact strikes permitted in others. Although kendo is common in Japan, it is also practiced in other countries around the world. It is thought likely that the first iron swords were manufactured in Japan in the fourth century, based on technology imported from China via the Korean peninsula.
