KUKISHIN-RYU JO-JUTSU with MATS HJELM was filmed at the Bujinkan Kaigozan Dojo during the summer of 2015. The eight Jo-jutsu Kata was studied thoroughly this summer.
There is no verbal instructions on this film. Each technique is first demonstrated slowly and then faster several times from all angles.
The defender has a sword and is not just blocking strikes from the staff. He is more offensive and actually try to counter every attack.

The Jojutsu techniques was developed by Ōkuni Kogenta Yukihisa the 11’th Sōke of Kukishin-ryu in the Genna period (1615-1624). The length of the stick is individual, when placed on the ground it should reach up to your armpit.
We use the same Kamae, strikes and blocks as in Rokushakubōjutsu. The first Jojutsu technique is the same as the last technique in Bōjutsu Keiko Sabaki Kata.
