In this work, Shidoshi Jordan reveals the secrets of a deadly, little known weapon, the chains, in their many versions, within the art known as Kusari-Jutsu. Although Kusari has never belonged to the armoury of the noblest arts, it was highly effective, even against other weapons such as the Katana. As it was quite versatile, many other tools for fighting were added, such as weights on both ends (Kusari Fundo) or a weight at one end and a sickle at the other (Kusarigama), in order to get more advantage over any kind of enemy. An almost lost knowledge
of classical Japan, as it was zealously transmitted at the Ogawa Ryu school.
