In this video “Shurikenjutsu Kihon”, I go over the basic knowledge and introduction of the use, the training and techniques of the shuriken. I also discuss how the ninja would have used this particular “kakushi buki (hidden weapon) on covert stealth missions, such as night raids. I also teach its historical position within the koryu; as this “weapon”, is more historically attached to samurai bujutsu, than it is to historical ninjutsu.
Shurikenjutsu (手裏剣術) is a general term describing the traditional Japanese martial arts of throwing shuriken, which are small, hand-held weapons/blades used primarily by the Samurai in feudal Japan, such as metal spikes bō shuriken, circular plates of metal known as hira shuriken, and knives (tantō).
Shurikenjutsu was usually taught among the sogo-bugei, or comprehensive martial arts systems of Japan, as a supplemental art to those more commonly practiced such as kenjutsu, iaijutsu, sojutsu, bōjutsu, etc… and is much less prevalent today than it was in the feudal era.
This lesson is directly for the practitioners of the ancient Japanese koryu martial arts of the ninja and samurai, such as ninjutsu (ninpo) and bujutsu (budo).
