Juttejutsu – Traditional Japanese Martial Arts Style

Juttejutsu is a Japanese martial arts that focuses on training with a traditional martial arts weapon known as the Jutte (or Jitte). The Jutte is a two pronged baton and is similar to the Sai.

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).
