Thus there evolved a sophisticated system for using these tools which became known as kobujutsu - the art of using weapons. This volume concerns itself with the tonfa baton and with the nunchaku rice flail. The former has recently been adopted by police forces throughout the world as the side-handled baton. The latter was made famous to dramatic effect by Bruce Lee in his film Enter the Dragon. The book skilfully combines traditional training forms - or katas - with detailed explanations to provide a fascinating examination of how these weapons were used.
