Learn about the Kusari Fundo (Chain Weapon) - Traditional Ninjutsu Weapon

The Kusari Fundo (also known as 'Manrikigusari) is a metal chain weapon historically associated with Ninjutsu, Bujutsu or Japanese feudal police. This traditional martial arts weapon consists of a chain (Kusari) with weights (Fundo) on each end.

In feudal Japan, it was employed in situations where carrying a sword was not allowed and a concealed weapon was needed. The Kusari Fundo can be used to deliver strikes by swinging or throwing the weight (or weights) at target areas while the chain is used to block and trap/entangle an opponent or his weapon. The chain can also be used to choke or restrain an opponent.

For more information on other traditional martial arts weapons (i.e. Staffs, Katana, Meteor Hammer and Shuriken), please visit the main traditional martial arts weapons section.
