Best Answer

Actually, there are two different Martial Arts that bear the name "Jyukendo" (Way of the Jyuken). However, each of them is based on a different homonym.

The Jyukendo meaning "way of the soft fist" is a recent discipline, created in the middle of the 20th century in Taïwan by a Chinese master named Tong Kin-tsan who had studied several styles of kung fu. It is mostly practiced in Okinawa.

But Jyuken also means "bayonet", so Jyukenjutsu describes the art of the bayonet as it has been developed in the Japanese Imperial Army since the Meiji Era. Jyukendo is its modern alter ego, created in 1956. Practitioners wear heavy protections and use a wooden rifle, trying to score a direct hit (which would under real fighting circumstances be fatal).
