Hojutsu Martial Arts: Acquiring Proficiency In Self-Defense And Nonviolent Resolution: Techniques, Philosophy & More

Yìchén Chéng

Hojutsu is a Japanese martial art that emphasizes the precise application of firearms, with a particular emphasis on handguns. In Japanese, "Hojutsu" is translated as "art of firearms" or "art of shooting." It comprises an extensive array of methodologies pertaining to the manipulation, discharge, and protection of firearms in both offensive and defensive contexts.
Typical jutsu curriculum components include marksmanship, weapon manipulation, firearm safety, drawing techniques, reloading exercises, shooting from a variety of positions, shooting while in motion, and tactical considerations including cover and concealment.
In contrast to traditional Japanese martial arts, which emphasize unarmed combat or melee weapons such as staffs and blades, Hojutsu arose as a reaction to the growing accessibility of firearms during the modern era. It integrates tenets of traditional Japanese martial arts philosophy with the pragmatic proficiencies essential for the proficient and conscientious manipulation of firearms.
