- "This is a bridge of a starship-my starship-not an anbojytsu arena" - Benjamin Sisko (DS9 novel: Saratoga)
The blind Alpha Centauran gymnast Kathar Eltrin invented this specialized school of staff-fighting in 2168. It remains more popular on Alpha Centauri as a performance art rather than a martial art, but Centaurans in Starfleet have returned it to its efficient roots. Anbo-jyutsu stresses kinesthetics, balance, and keen senses. (Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual)
In 2373, Kes and B'Elanna Torres participated in several anbo-jyutsu matches on the USS Voyager's holodeck, as a means of channeling some of the anger and frustration that was building inside Kes's mind since her possession by the Ilari warlord, Tieran. However, both competitors decided that a combat sport wasn't the best way for Kes to deal with it. (VOY short story: "Winds of Change")
