Katori Shinto Ryu's style was one of the earliest styles of bujiutsu. In the school, pairs of kata exercises are practiced, which includes the exchange of movements between partners. Another characteristic of the school is its skills, which were used mainly on the battlefield, unlike other later schools, when martial arts skills were designed for self-defense. Skills on the battlefield meant that a person was supposed to be able to defend himself and own different types of weapons, so Katori Shinto Ryu practiced Kenjutsu, jyujutsu, naginat-jutsu, iajutsu, ju-jitsu and many others that took many years and a special training program.
