History of the Tanjo

Uchida Ryu Tanjo Jutsu, Short Stick, was developed in the Meiji Period (late 1800s - early 1900s), and used to be referred to as "Sutteki" Jutsu. At the time, walking sticks were in vogue (in Japanese, "Sutteki"), and the Tanjo was basically the same dimensions.

Tanjo Jutsu was the precursor of Keibo-jutsu, the baton techniques taught and used for law enforcement developed in the 1930s. Tanjo Jutsu (or Tanjojutsu) is also incorporated into Taiho Jutsu, a system of "Arrrest Techniques" taught internationally to law enforcement professionals.

Tanjo jutsu includes strikes mainly to the head and forearm. However, there are many more techniques used by the police (Keijo jutsu) such as arm locks, arm bars, strangles, chokes, strikes with butt of the baton, releases and a technique similar to Tai Atari. Not only are there more techniques in Keijo jutsu, but the stick itself is quite different. The police stick has a leather loop at the end, which is looped around the thumb and around the back of the hand, allowing for a firm grip that is not easily torn out of the hand. Keijo jutsu continued to develop during the 1960`s, and the US Navy contributed to the techniques because they had their own system of using the baton.

4 of 5 tanjo cane December 24, 2020
Reviewer: Chris Hale from Staten Island, NY United States  
It's a beautiful cane and it looks very strong. I still worry about the handle falling off but I won't know until it happens. One issue that bothers me is that it is very heavy. Do use it as a tendo is tough on the joints and takes certain out of strength. I'll keep it but it's not the best weapon for me for this reason. I'm pretty strong so this is a little surprising.
