In the early 1600's, master martial artist Muso Gonnosuke was defeated by Musashi Miyamoto. Humiliated, Muso isolated himself. During this period of time, he conceived the idea of a new form of staff fighting that used a shortened stick four feet in length. The Jo combines the techniques of the spear, sword and the naginata.
