Question Origins

The legendary story of the defeat of Musashi by Gonnosuke I have heard. And actually this is the only story I've heard as the origin of the Jo.

But one thing that I have noticed that other than similarities the yari, I also see a lot of similarities with the naginata. I guess this only depends on the school that teaches the Jo.
