Having exausted the topic search on this,I wonder if anyone knows if this is a secret art?one that was transmitted?Was it openly practiced?From what I understand it is the abilty to throw any weapon.

Yes, it was practiced openly.

"Shuriken" are, at their most basic, small, straight throwing knives. I'm trying to remember the oldest reference to them--I thought it was early Edo in a fight. The one combatant used a shuriken to stick his opponent's hakama to the floor, giving him the advantage.

Bugei Ryuha Daijiten mentions ryuha known for the practice of shuriken.

It does *not* refer to the ability to throw anything.

Yes, that's what I meant--there were schools that claim a transmission of shurikenjutsu.

http://www.secrets-of-shuriken.com.au

An excellent resource site in English.

Also, one of Di Skoss' Koryu books contains an interview with the headmaster of a dedicated shuriken ryuha.

Shurikenjutsu was an auxililliary discipline in many ryuha. A good number of koryu ryuha have or had shurikenjutsu in their syllabi.

Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto-ryu, Tatsumi-ryu, Takenouchi-ryu and other sogo bujutsu ryuha still have this discipline and train it regularly.
