Juttejutsu 十手術 is the Japanese martial art of using the Japanese weapon jutte (also known as jitte). Juttejutsu was evolved mainly for the law enforcement officers of the Edo period to enable non-lethal disarmament and apprehension of criminals who were usually carrying a sword. Besides the use of striking an assailant on the head, wrists, hands and arms like that of a baton, the jutte can also be used for blocking, deflecting and grappling a sword in the hands of a skilled user.

There are several schools of juttejutsu today and various jutte influences and techniques are featured in several martial arts.
