Registration and information


Shindō Musō-ryū most commonly known by its practice of jōdō, is a traditional school (koryū) of the Japanese martial art of jōjutsu, or the art of wielding the short staff (jō). The technical purpose of the art is to learn how to defend against a swordsman in combat using the jō, with an emphasis on proper combative distance, timing and concentration. The system includes teachings of other weapon systems which are contained in Shindō Musō-ryū as auxiliary arts (Fuzoku ryuha).

Zen Nihon Kendō Renmei Jōdō is a modern form of jōdō created by Japanese martial artist Shimizu Takaji and presented to the All Japan Kendo Federation in 1968.*

These both forms of Jodo are practiced in Finland.
