Hanbo, Tonfa & Escrima

The Hanbo arose - rather coincidentally - from half of a Bo. Nagafusa Kuriyama smashed the Bo in an argument with a swordsman. He fought on with the leftover piece and thus defeated his opponent. In 1575 the Hanbo was included in the curriculum of the Kukishin Ryu. The Hanbo is mainly used in close combat (lever, push and punch techniques) and is used in several martial arts such as jujutsu, ninjutsu, karate or aikido.

On one of his journeys (14th century) through China, Grand Master Matsu got to know the Tonfa and brought it to Japan. He further developed the tonfa as a weapon. Around 1430 peasants were banned from carrying weapons. Carrying of weapons was only allowed to the samurai. Out of this need, the farmers developed weapons from things that they had in their daily use, e.g. Kama, Tonfa etc. The tonfa is widespread among many police forces and the military. But this has nothing to do with traditional martial arts. The traditional method of application can still be found in the various martial arts schools of Kobudo.

The name Bruce Lee is very related to the Filipino martial art Escrima. In many of his films he portrayed the use of these effective Filipino sticks. Thus the almost forgotten martial art Escrima came back into the center of the public. The roots of the Filipino martial art go back more than 500 years.
