    Jodo?

    Ok. So I've been on Bullshido for about a week now, and I've been wondering if anyone is trained in the use of a jo staff. I'm also wondering if anyone is a practitioner of Muso Shinden Jodo.

    We use the Jo as part of our kobudo training in Shorin Ryu, mainly kata and bunkai but we're trying to sort out some bogu, body and hand protectors (Kendo gear basically) so we can start some rudimentary sparring. Looking forward to it actually.

    Yeah it's lots of fun. The fluid yet powerful motions are pretty devastating, in the event that you'd have a jo-like weapon near you in real confrontations.

    What does your Jo training involve?

    It involves 8 Self Defense Techniques and 8 Kata. We apply many rules and techniques of the shinken and shinai to the jo along with fluid jabs and oblique strikes.

    Judo is a very standardized art, one of the most standardized martial arts of them all. It is very rare to find a judo school that doesn;t just say "we do judo" so i would take this style of juso witha grain of salt.

    I learned Jo while I was studying aikido in japan. It is a great weapon. It is used a lot like a sword, except you can do a lot more moves because you can use both ends and slide it through your hands.

    Are you... high? It seems you can't type properly, and on top of that, the OP is already aware of the Jo's attributes. Please read all posts carefully in the future.

    I found this, it looks no less solid than any other PVC weapon. Kind of.

    Also, I'd reccomend just about ANY soft sparring bo/jo to actually hitting people with wood. I use a pair of soft sparring bokken, and I love those damn things. You can buy 'em just about anywhere online, and making them seems easy enough, as the link above suggests (I've never made one, though, I dunno).

    Kukishin-ryu has a set using the Jo.

    Kendo gear is not designed to withstand blows from solid wood weapons. It's not safe for sparring with jo.
