Juttejutsu – Traditional Japanese Martial Arts Style
In ancient Japan, the Jutte was used by retainers in situations where swords were prohibited. The Jutte was used to block knife/sword strikes, hit opponents with the shaft, etc.
Today, according to Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo, Juttejutsu focuses on “24 core jutte kata”. In these katas, the Jutte is often used in conjunction with the Tessen (or war fan).
