Ninjutsu Weapon: Kusari Fundo - Ninja Blackbelt Techniques VideosNinjutsu Weapon: Kusari Fundo - Black Belt Grappling Techniques - Ninja Weapons Training: In this videos, the Santa Cruz Bujinkan Dojo demonstrates some training exercises that mostly employ grappling methods with the KUSARI FUNDO. Carefully take note of the defensive moves as well as the attacker techniques. This video is a free clip that supplements the more in-depth lesson about the kusari fundo taught in 4th of the black belt video course "Basics Of Ninja Training" at http://www.Ninja-Learning-Network.com/kusari-fundo-ninja-weapon.html (click link to read more about about the Kusari Fundo Ninjutsu Weapons and many other "Ninja Weapons.")
"Kusari" means chain and the "fundo" means metal bits at the ends. For training purposes, many Sensei tell students to use soft ropes with wound knots or wooden chunks at the end to train safely. Metal chains with metal tips should only be used with extreme care. For safety reasons, Sensei Roemke is not demonstrating extreme whip techniques, hard poking or striking nor any flesh-scraping maneuvers - which are some of the most damaging and possibly deadly aspects of this weapon. This Ninjutsu Weapon Kusari Fundo video focuses on defensive grappling meant to stop or capture an attacker. Shihan Roemke and the others in this video are intentionally using a slow and soft grappling method (as in ALL their videos) to encourage safety oriented practice for novices who watch their videos. All students should avoid trying any martial art exercises quickly or with great force, unless they are a very advanced martial artists under supervision of experienced instructors and who are training with other sensible athletes.
