I've heard another version of this duel. It's basicly the same setting except Muso uses one of those long japanese swords, No-dachi or o-dachi.
The story also say that Muso got the inspiration for jodo by a revelation:
"Whatever the case may be, Gonnosuke lost the first duel. Mortified, he withdrew to Homangu, part of the Kamado Shinto shrine atop Mount Homan, in Chikuzen province, (present-day Dazaifu, Fukuoka Prefecture) Kyushu. For 37 days he meditated and performed rites of austerity. On the last night night, while praying in front of an altar, he collapsed and had a divine vision.
In one version, a heavenly child appeared and said, "Holding a round log, know the suigetsu (an attack point on the body)."

Length of jo
Surely jo are of a more-or-less(!) standard length (See e.g. the jo article)... and considerably longer than "the average length of a walking stick". Does anyone know where this statement and the measurements in the introduction come from? Otherwise I'd suggest correcting them to match the true info in the jo article. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:17, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
