10946Yumi and such
- Nov 1, 2002Greetings to all of the list from Yama Kaminari no Date Saburou Yukiie,
I have heard that there was a fighting discipline where spear-tips
were fitted over the heads of yumi to facilitate close combat for
those who used bows. Do any of you have pictorial refs for such...Are
their descriptions, or refs telling of how and when these might have
been used in period, or is it a post period thing? It sounds Sengoku
Jidai, but I don't know?
I found a web site depicting such, but I cannot account for the
validity of the research, as it looks cheezy, and the photos are
definitely post period.
Anyone with more understanding would be welcome to enlighten us...
Ever curious about yumi, and their uses...
