History of the Mokuju

"The bayonet was in general military use in Europe in the 1660s and remains part of the rifle weapons system in most modern armies. The systemization of combat with the bayonet reached a height in the period 1850 through 1914 in Europe and North America. The European bayonet was incorporated in the modernizing armies of Japan and China in the late 1800s and early 1900s, making this weapon a unique example in the development of Asian martial arts. Bayonet fencing as a form of competition was closely associated with classical fencing, and remained, at least in theory, a competitive sport into the 1930s in Europe. The techniques and training for bayonet combat in World War II and subsequently were generally simplified, eliminating most of the complex techniques that could not be quickly taught to soldiers. After World War II bayonet fencing emerged again in a sporting context in Japan as Jūkendō."
