Hello guys, Apologies if this is one of those topics that has already been discussed at length, but I had a search through the site and could only find one old post on this organisation, so don't think there is much on it. I recently starting training in the UK with TJF and was curious what Jujutsu school they actually train in or follow, and was surprised when a 2nd dan told me there basically isn't one and that TJF started from some people training in Judo and other bits and pieces and just sort of put together a system that works. I find this very odd as it seems like quite a comprehensive and effective system, not like something that has just been thrown together from bits and pieces. Also, some techniques are very similar to Bujinkan (and I assume other Jujutsu related systems) like many of the wrist locks and some of the throws. Can anyone shed any light on how this organisation started and what the advantages/disadvantages of not following any particular lineage might be? Personally I don't mind that much as it seems effective and the instructors seem very knowledgeable, but I am mainly just curious about how it started and why there is no specific lineage that they follow, if indeed that is the case.
