In Takeda Ryu, Shurikenjutsu is very strongly combined to the swordsmanship which means that here, different from the ninjutsu practice, shuriken hardly have been used as a weapon in its own. It was mostly used to confuse the opponent or cause some injury in order to prepare a more efficient attack by sword. That is the reason why a lot of exercises are executed at short distance and in connection with sword actions.
