AJutte (Jitte) - Traditional Japanese Martial Arts Weapon
The Jutte (or Jitte) is a Japanese martial arts weapon similar to the Sai. Though unlike Sai which are traditionally used in pairs the Jutte is a single weapon. While this martial arts weapon is relatively obscure today, it is used by a martial arts style known as Juttejutsu and is also taught in some schools of Ninjutsu and some Bujutsu Ryu.
In ancient Japan, this two pronged baton was used by retainers in situations where swords were prohibited. The Jutte/Jitte was used to block knife/sword strikes, hit opponents with the shaft and to trap oncoming sword strikes between the shaft and prong by twisting the jutte. The jutte is also sometimes referred to as the 'sword breaker' as in the hands of a master it is possible to not only trap but also to break a sword blade (though this requires great strength and extensive understanding of both the jutte and the sword).
