Re: Jo Training

I've heard it explained that O'Sensei developed a lot of the technique from the sword and jo...for instance, O'Sensei developed the hand movements from the sword, the way the ken moves is similar to the arms move in such techniques as yonkyo or whatnot...and the foot movements developed from jo, as seen in the 31-count jo kata...

That's what I've heard and it makes some sense to me...
