Bujinkan Kusarigama Training

Bujinkan kusarigama training.

The kusarigama is a historical weapon in the Japanese martial arts, consisting of a hand blade, with a weighted chain.

Used to counter the distance and speed of the sword, the chain with the weight is used to strike and entangle, while the hand blade is used to close with the target.

Footwork and distance are the most important elements of the training.
