Suruchin

The Suruchin was traditionally a six foot piece of hemp rope with rocks or weights secured to the ends, used for long range defence, trapping and striking. The modern version has replaced the rope and rocks with chain and weights.

The association does not have any Kata associated with this weapon although it was practiced by our founders and is a weapon that some of the senior practitioners continue to train with.
