    The Japanese sword and Jujutsu

    I'm not so sure, and I'm assuming because jujutsu is the Samurai art.
    Do they briefly teach how to use a Japanese sword in jujutsu?
    I'd also like to know about the spear, or the bo.

    JuJitus had some origins in samuri arts.
    The WJJF do some weapon work for 2nd dan, & they also do a seperate Kobudo syllibus that is all weapon work including bo & later naginata (japanese halberd).

    If your spesificaly interested in the katana an Iaido school is probably a better bet.

    p.s. the WJJF main site is down last time i looked but individual schools sometimes have sites.

    As an aside..the WJJF site does work in IE, it just doesn't in Firefox. Which technically makes it broken, but you *can* access it in IE.

    However the site sucks ass in general so I wouldn't bother

    Unless I'm getting my history wrong I believe there is a brief coverage of the katana and other weapons in the original ju-jitsu curriculum.
    As original Ju-jitsu and Judo used to be taught as the same martial art. Which was the standard for warriors back in the days of feudal Japan.

    So it encompassed most everything that you would need to know about fighting. Which included weapons.

    Brazilian Ju-Jitsu doesn't teach any of the weapons, but standard Ju-Jitsu should when you get up into the higher belts.

    If you're interested in learning about these weapons, find a class that teaches them. Jujutsu is just going to go over the basics of sword work, maybe bo, but probably not naginata or yari.

    I'd do the usual Bullshido style check on any JJ school that teaches weapons. As has been pointed out JJJ did originate from the Samurai and some modern schools teach weaponry as well as their unarmed stuff, and are good at it but the majority I've seen/experienced aren't.

    If you're after a specific Japanese weapon art you might want to try Naginata Do, Kendo, Jodo or Iaido.

    Ju Jitsu arts teach defense from a sword attack, or how to use other tools to restrain an angry Samurai that has a sword, not so much as fighting with a sword. (Source: Greg Fernandez, Jundokai)
    In my opinion, using a Katana is a lifelong (specialized) study. Otherwise take fencing or visit with the SCA.
