    Default Isshin Ryu Choe-no-kama

    Anyone ever hear of a "choe-no-kama" / "choe-no-gama"?

    I was reading that there are 8 kata for this weapon in Isshin Ryu.

    Default Video

    I found this video which I believe is the long-handled kama kata.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjJPivqQfxY

    The weapon in this video has a chain, but the original document from the first post said that there was no chain.

    The kata in the video do have the same name as the above list.

    Here is a picture of a Long Handle Kama which comes from Kaminoda's book on Isshin Ryu.

    And here are a few more sites where the Long Handle Kama is listed.

    http://www.tojoren.jp/03fuzoku/kusarigama.php
    On this page the set is referred to as the “Ryogoro Uchida Series”.

    https://translate.google.com/transla...ml&prev=search
    This page refers to the long handle sickle set as “Kaiden”
    Juttejutsu and Hojojutsu are curiously absent from this page.
