Stepping Up the Effort
Our Jojutsu group has recently begun to increase training time with the jo, bokken, and other ancillary weapons in Shindo Muso Ryu Jojutsu in order to prepare for a week of intensive training that will be held next August. Known as a "gasshuku", these training sessions are held on a regular basis and train all weapons in the system. Training can be quite intensive (up to 10 hours a day for the week) and are intended to really drill down into the specifics and heiho (strategies) of the ryu. Classes are held 2x a week and we are always looking for those who might be interested in learning a 450 year old combative weapons school.
