Ninja Weighted Chain Fighting Techniques (Manriki Gusari / Kusari Fundo) Ninjutsu Martial Arts

In this video, I teach how to apply various ninja weighted chain fighting techniques, utilizing the manriki gusari (a.k.a Kusari Fundo). . The Manriki-gusari (万力鎖) is a one of the secret hidden weapons of the ninja and samurai. The manriki-gusari is a simple, yet effective weapon. Weights are attached on both ends of the weapon and these weights are connected with a chain. The length of the chain is different depending on the ryuha that one is training in. Generally, the manriki-gusari is a self-defence weapon. It’s small and compact, so ninja or samurai can hide it in their pocket and can be used a variety of different ways.

In the video, I am using a “training manriki gusari”.  This is a soft rope with soft rubber ends on it instead of a weighted chain. Using the training aid will allow you to go through complete range of motion with the kata, without injuring your training partner.

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).
