Jo: Art of the Japanese Short Staff

Book Summary:

The author, a practitioner of several Japanese classical martial arts, presents the basics of "aiki jo," which he learned from Yutaka Funaki and Sachiyo Fujii. He describes this circular, flowing style as distinct from the older jo traditions. The chapters include the evolution of jojutsu, equipment and preparation, fundamentals, striking methods, combination techniques, and the 31-count exercise. A glossary of Japaneses terms finishes the book.
