    Default Negishi ryu shurikenjutsu

    This is probably a very dumb question, but are the octagonal and cylindrical shuriken used in the Negishi Ryu pointed on only one end, or both?

    Also, does anyone know of a place to buy 'real', traditional shuriken (not shaken, or "ninja throwing spikes in nylon pouch" type things), or are they normally handmade by members of ryu for their own use?

    TIA..

    The Budo shop in Suidobashi in Tokyo opposite the Tokyo Dome sells quality Bo Shuriken. The last time I was there it had two kinds - a large heavy one and smaller more 'conventional' sized six inch shuriken. Really good quality and they throw beautifully. They cost around $20 though.

    Default short bio on Kanji Naruse, of Negishi Ryu shurikenjutsu

    Hi all,

    I've prepared a short biography, in memory of Kanji Naruse sensei, 3rd headmaster of Negishi Ryu shurikenjutsu here:

    http://www.secrets-of-shuriken.com.a..._kanji_bio.htm

    If anyone has more info or can note some errors, I'd be appreciative to hear from you.

    I'm not quite sure whether Naruse Sensei's teacher, Tonegawa Magoroku did in fact study under Shirai Toru Yoshikane as well as Negishi Shorei - I'm just trying to track down the source for that bit of info.

    cheers,

    Jason Wotherspoon

    Negishi-ryu shuriken are pointed at one end only. They are not produced commercially, they need to be order-made to spec. Headmaster Saito has his shuriken made abroad. He binds the grip himself in Japan.

    Hello Dean,

    It is difficult to say if this is Negishi-ryu, but I suspect it is. Negishi ryu evolved from Ganritsu-ryu, which used a long, slender design. Traditional Negishi-ryu shuriken are relatively short and bulky. Both the head and tail are tapered. This shuriken certainly isn't traditional in design, but it may be a variation. I can email you a picture of the design I was taught by Headmaster Saito, if you like. Send me your email address.

    There seems to be no problem with thread necromancy here on e-budo? Can I go dig up some dead threads? =)

    Do a web search for Yamato Budogu. They have them but are expensive!

    Around 100Euro for one Shuriken is - not normal in my understanding.

    Anyway, I asked a blacksmith here in town. Maybe he can help me.

    There used to be a guy in Ca. who made a set of 5 for $75.00, but I cant find his webpage. If you are looking for plans, secrets-of-shuriken website has very nice drawings.

    Hello,

    thanks for your reply. Well, pics are welcome (especially of Negishi ryu shuriken) but I also look for pics of Mito ryu Bo-Shuriken.

    Maybe you have something interesting for me.

    Regards,
    Michael Reinhardt
