    Need a source on Manrikigusari

    I'm looking for a good intro source book or video or both on Manrikigusari.

    I've learned a smattering of techniques before but spring is fast approaching in Texas and that means bike time. Which means I can carry a bike lock. which mean its Manrikigusari time.

    Anybody have any experience, training tips, and especially training tips with aliveness?

    Thanks,
    Antifa

    Chain and Shuriken by Charles V. Gruzanski who is the other westerned lincensed in Massasji Ryu. On a side note this is the BundoKusari Ryu-Ha that is used in the x-kans. I have this books it very worth $10.

    The Ninja Weapons was added to the title to make it sell but Massaki ryu isn't a Ninjutsu-ryu

    Expensive, but exteremly durable, and a perfectly good excuse to carry around a chain with a blunt object attached to the end. Also, your bike won't get jacked.

    I've looked around but can't find ****-all. I know what you're thinking and have done exactly that. Practice is a good idea. (i was gonna say that practice can't hurt, but that would be wrong.)

    Lacrosse gloves and helmet would probably suffice.
