Did anyone actually make it all the way through this rant?
Why knows. I just wanted to give multiple counter examples to a certain users dogmatic statements about how Hapkido is taught. I guess it is probably not of interest to the wast majority of users in here, but at least I got out some steam writing it.
I opened this thread with gleeful excitement, getting ready to read five pages of koryu and jujutsu discussion. Damn.
Exactly. But I'm far from being a good grappler.
I've used the choke (position) to temporarily hold people without actually squeezing hard enough to choke them. Especially standing, moving them backwards, shaking them off balance as we move. I've always loved that position.
I know this thread has probably run its course, but if you're looking for a softer Japanese style rooted in JJJ, I'd recommend Aikido.
I train in a club called Kuro Obi Ju Jitsu, which is for self defence. In my club, the cardio is light and we only train through sheer repetition. Months and months of just repeating the same 20 techniques. You need good grip for lapel chokes and collar holds, but apart from that (as far as I know) we mostly keep away from grabbing onto the gi or the belt so that we learn to appy the techniques without the need for a gi or a coat to grab onto the opponent.
Sadly, many clubs for TJJ (including mine) don't encourage sparring, and I haven't been able to pressure test the techniques which I have (supposedly) learnt.
If your club doesn't allow sparring, you guys need to either form groups outside of class to spar, or go somewhere else. Lack of sparring is a killer, because you're not learning how to utilize your techniques under stress.
Agree. Just be careful how do you train and with the people involved. Sparring easily drifts to silliness, even under formal supervision.
Just join a judo dojo.
And 'kuro obi' JJ is not Traditional JJJ, it's gendai (modern) JJ. Most folks take 'traditional' to mean actual koryu JJ.
I had to do a triple take at the username and post to make sure I read it right.
For grappling you need to roll. For stand up it isn't as important I mean you can get away with it but grappling you 100% need live training or in a real match all the techniques will be useless
