The hanbo is a staff used in martial arts that actually means half-staff and hanbjutsu is the art of wielding the hanbo. The hanb can be held toward one end, and be swung like a katana or kendo sword. Additionally, it can be held in the middle like a staff and strike and block from either end. Legend suggests that during a battle between Kuriyama Ukon and General Suzuki Tangonokami Katsuhisa, Kuriyama was armed with a spear and katana. During the battle, Suzuki cut Kuriyamas spear in half, but Kuriyama was able to continue to fight and overcame Suzuki with the spear handle or hanbo.
