In this video, I talk about the use of the Shuko as taught by the Togakure ryu. I also teach and demonstrate a few techniques that are taught within the Togakure-ryu as well. Techniques such as climbing with the shuko, how to hold the sword with the shuko (te-no-uchi), Defensive counters with the Shuko (Ichi-no-Kamae) as well as capturing and controlling techniques with this Shuko (Itto Dori).
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).

BUDO RYU ONLINE UNIVERSITY:
Here she teaches various ways of using the Sanjaku-tenugui (三尺手拭い; 3 ft cloth) to aid in shinobi
A Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton and was a common item during the Sengoku Jidai
(戦国時代) and the Edo Jidai
(江戸時代) for anyone of any social class to carry as it could be used as a head wrap, washcloth, dishcloth, headband, souvenir or decoration and as a head covering in Kendo
It is typically about 35 by 90 centimeters in size (approx: 1 1/2 – 3ft in length), plain weaved and is almost always dyed with some pattern. The shinobi (忍び) would take advantage of this common item and use it to aid them on missions in a variety of ways such as: creating a shinobi zukin (忍び頭巾; ninja hood) climbing various objects, tying various objects together such as doors, people, tools and weaponry.
