The weapons of Nindo Yamabushi Ryu were chosen with survival in mind.
Bo - Staff
Jo - Walking Stick
Hanbo - Cane
Yawara - Fist Load
All of these weapons are of simple design. An asset that allows them to be foraged or constructed in the field. Being a skilled practitioner with any weapon is a moot point if those weapons are unavailable to you. These weapons can easily be improvised in any but the most desolate environment.

Most are nonthreatening in appearence and may not immediately be recognized as weapons, an asset that contributes to their value. Some serve, not only as weapons but, as tools to aid you in your travels. In a difficult situation any easily available and versatile weapons, such as these, could prove to be an invaluable asset to increase your chances of survival.
