THE SWORD!

Back to

weapons

The Japanese sword (nihonto) has been internationally known for its

sharpness and beauty since feudal times. The sword used to be the

distinguishing mark of the samurai. Since swords are extremely

dangerous weapons, it is forbidden to possess one without a permit

in Japan today. The Japanese sword, admired for its artistic value

as well as for its practical merits, is often considered an emblem

of the samurai's power and skill. It was venerated by the bushi,

or warrior class, and was worn as a badge of a samurai's status.

The sword was the "the soul of a samurai," and no self-respecting bushi

would be seen outside his home without his daisho (pair of swords)

prominently displayed.

Back to weapons

The Manrikigusari

The manrikigusari consisted of a short length of metal chain,

about two to three feet long, with weights on each end.

The chain could be used to parry a strike from sticks, swords,

or other weapons. The weights were also swung to strike an

opponent or to entangle a weapon. Once a weapon was

trapped by the chain and weights, the samurai could easily

disarm their opponent. Finally, the length of chain could also

be used to temporarily restrain an attacker once he was subdued.

The manrikigusari was allegedly developed by Dannoshin

Toshimitsu Masaki, then head sentry at Edo Castle, sometime

during the early 1700s. According to legend, Masaki was inspired

to create this unique weapon to prevent unnecessary bloodshed

while his guards defended the castle from intruders. The

manrikigusari was later adopted by other constables and their assistants

to disarm and capture criminals.

The Jutte

Back to

Weapons

The jutte was an iron truncheon carried by feudal era police officers called doshin, as well as by

their non-samurai assistants. The jutte evolved from a very strange battlefield weapon commonly

believed to have been designed by Goro Nyudo Masamune, a renowned swordsmith. Hachiwari,

literally "helmet splitters,” were curved, pointed metal bars with a hook near the base of the

handle. Worn by the bushi like a dirk, hachiwari were probably used as a parrying weapon,

held in the left hand while wielding a sword in the right, or used to pierce through body armor.

Much like the hachiwari, a single hook or fork on the side near the handle allowed the jutte to be

used for trapping or even breaking the blades of edged weapons, as well as for jabbing or striking.

Thus, the jutte was used to disarm and arrest suspects without bloodshed. Eventually, the jutte

became a symbol of a doshin's official status. Munisai Hirata, the father of Japan's most famous

swordsman, Musashi Miyamoto, was considered a master of the iron truncheon and jutte-jutsu.

Edo-period police officers and their assistants developed many weapons and techniques against

criminal violators, who were usually armed and frequently desperate. The jutte was popular in

feudal Japan because it could parry the slash of a razor-sharp sword and immobilize an assailant

without injury. The jutte also probably influenced the development of the sai, a dual-forked

metal weapon employed in Okinawan karate. Essentially a defensive or restraining weapon, the

length of the jutte required the user to get very close to those being apprehended. Like the tessen,

a jutte could be used in blocking (uke) and parrying (nagashi) techniques, as well as in striking

(uchi), thrusting (tsuki), and holding (osae) techniques.

DAILY LIVES

The samurai’s daily life included studying with all kinds of weapons, training, and battle. For training, the samurai had to withhold lots of grueling practice, in which many times they would get hurt. But good samurai never complained, because this was what they loved. They looked forward to battles, but they were not afraid of dying because dying was an honorable task, and in fact a good samurai looked forward to dying on the battlefield.

Ambitions

Back to

TOC

Good Samurai were not very ambitious. Their only ambition

was to die in battle, but not before chopping some heads off.

They would rather die for their lord and the Emperor than to stay

living. To be captured was so shameful for them, that most

samurai would commit suicide rather than to fall into a different

lord’s hands as his slave. No samurai would ever want to retreat.
