Re: [SCA-JML] Kama Yari
> (1) horizontal to the shaft, points forwardThis is known as a Jumoni yari
> (2) horizontal to the shaft, points rearwardThis is a Kama yari as used by the Kumogakure ryu
ninja clan. Also Used by the Kukishinden ryu samurai
clan. Used like a kaginawa (grappling hook).
Originally used aboard ships. When attempting to
board another vessel the kama yari was used to grab
the enemy vessel and pull it in so that the ships
could be tied together which makes it easier to attack
her with hand to hand combat techniques.
In the Kumogakure ryu it is used for scalling walls,
trees, swinging in trees as well (escape), pulling
enemy warriors in as well as hooking enemies from
above when attacking from roofs, trees, walls.
