Synopsis: The jo appears to be the lowliest of all tools an ordinary length of wood yet it’s an exceptional weapon. While no one speaks of famous jo makers the way they do of sword smiths, the jo is capable of snapping the best swords ever forged. Packed with information on correct grips, stances, postures and etiquette, the book also outlines striking methods, combination techniques, and a 31-count formal solo exercise called tandoku renshu, making it the ultimate resource for those who appreciate Japan’s most subtle weapon.

About the Author: Dave Lowry has written several books about Japanese culture and the martial arts. Since 1986, his writing has been featured in Black Belt magazine in a monthly column called "Karate Way."
