Manriki-gusari is a one of the secret weapons of the ninjas in Japan. The shape of manriki-gusari is quite simple. Weights are attached on both ends of the weapon and these weights are connected with a chain. The length of the chain is different depending on the ninja school it's from. Generally they weigh between 300 to 400g. Basically, manriki-gusari is a self-defence weapon. It is so tiny that Ninjas can bring it in their pocket.
