Shuriken are traditional Japanese throwing spikes. The spikes we use are made of steel that are either rectangular or round with a sharp point or points.


Shurikenjitsu teaches the proper judging of distance, hand-eye coordination, and the Zen practice of empty-mind (Mushin). At the School of Sword and Staff we throw from many different positions: standing, sitting and walking.  Throwing distances range from 6-20 feet.


The Zen aspect of Shurikenjitsu


Keeping your mind calm and relaxed, never to get too excited or disappointed.

Calmness and being able to repeat the perfect throwing motion consistently is required for success.
