    Wado-Ryu Practitioners?

    Oh, if thats the case then I understand. Because my teacher also teach (more like "showing" actually) some techniques from other Ryuha, so that we will understand the differences, for example, the differences between Wado kotegaeshi and Aikido kotegaeshi and Takagi Yoshin-ryu's omotegyaku..

    Wado-Ryu Practitioners?

    Cirdan man, do you really practice that much outside influence? tai chi and kickboxing I can understand because wado does not have tai chi breathing & full contact sparring like kickboxing. but why practice aikido throws and joint locks when our own wado-ryu is already very rich in jujutsu...

Very big emphasis on basic techniques. Using low stances, linear movements, emphasis on speed and power, often accused by other styles to...

    Do you know your karate lineage?

    yes I heard about this but when I asked sensei, he said he isn't sure. What he know was, that Otsuka sensei and Uyeshiba sensei are both very highly regarded by the Japanese government, and both were instructors to the military, so it is very possible that they are, at least, good friends. If I...

    Do you know your karate lineage?

    yes, from what my sensei told me, Otsuka sensei learned basic kihon techniques and the basic 9 katas from funakoshi sensei. then he learned more advanced katas from mabuni sensei (rohai etc). mabuni sensei also influenced the pinan katas that we have in wado. From motobu sensei, otsuka sensei...

    Tang Soo Do and the Chinese connection

    thank you for the info. Is there any small videoclipfile floating around the web which shows some of those chinese-influenced Tang Soo Do hyungs? The ones I saw are mostly the Okinawan-derived ones.

    Also, master Penfil, does the hanja ideograms for So Rim Jang Kwan corresponds with "Shaolin Chang Quan" in Chinese?

    most reliable/effective takedowns ??

    when I spar in Judo, I most often ended up at the losing side because I am small and Judo guys are big :) Nevertheless, I think the best techniques are those with "backup", which means that even though your initial attack failed, you are in position to do another attack, or to anticipate what...

    Judo vs BJJ. What's the difference?

    There are Judo for sport (Shiai Judo), and self-defense Judo (Goshin Jutsu). There are BJJ for sport, BJJ for Vale Tudo (prize fighting) and for self-defense. I must say, that there are ZERO differences between BJJ self-defense and Judo self-defense. Even the sequences of the techniques are...

    Okinawa Karate

    kyokushin is modern sport karate, they have full-contact competitions, and much of the kyokushin training are geared towards competitions. Okinawan Karate training mostly emphasizes traditional Kata training and applications of Kata for self-defense. So, one is for sport training, the other is...

    Yeah? So what is so good bout competition??

    Only the Aikikai style has explicitly stated its opposition to competition. Other styles started by Uyeshiba sensei's senior prewar students such as the Yoseikan of Mochizuki sensei (http://www.yoseikan-budo.org/), the Tomiki/Shodokan-ryu Aikido of Tomiki sensei (http://www.tomiki.org/) and...

    Wado-Ryu Practitioners?

    I agree very much. My teacher is with the JKF-Wadokai, but he personally prefer the Wado Renmei (Otsuka Jiro) style because the Renmei emphasizes more on Jujutsu-influenced techniques.

    Wado-Ryu Practitioners?

    In Indonesia wado is less popular compared to Shotokan and Goju. And most of wado people here were recruited from other groups, so not all of them moves in wado way, usually they still moves in their old ways. So, many people with wado badges, but moves like Shotokan. And they emphasizes sport...

    Help with terminology

    What a coincidence. I just talked to sensei, and apparently he just talked today with Mr. Prayitno, one of a senior practitioner of Jujutsu in Indonesia. He is a friend of Mr. De Jong. I think so, because in the Ryuha system, there are (usually) no specific name for specific technique...

    Help with terminology

    In our system this technique has different name depending on which Ryuha it came from. Takagi Yoshin-ryu call this Ura Gyaku. In Takagi Yoshin-ryu this is a variation of Oni Kudaki. In Dentokan (Hakko-ryu) it has many name depending on the Kata, but the generic name is Niho Nage. Looks like...

    Magical Aiki technniques?

    hello Professor Goldsbury, Thank you for the information. I am also very sure that Watanabe sensei are capable of doing "conventional" Aikido at very respectable level. It's just the "magic Ki stuff" that surprises me.

    Magical Aiki technniques?

    Thank you for your logical explanations. I am sure that sensei cannot dodge bullets either :) So the consensus is that these techniques are more like magic tricks and cannot be relied upon on real fight?

    Magical Aiki technniques?

    So those kind of techniques will never work in real life? Why so? Isn't it possible to train hard to achieve that kind of ability? Or at least develop the power of hypnotism to be able to control the mind of Uke? I wonder, are those recent innovations of current Aikikai shihans? because I...

    Goshindo

    maybe it's the style of Aiki Goshindo by Maitre Roland Maroteaux. He is a menkyokaiden and shihan menkyo holder in several traditional Japanese Jujutsu systems, trained in Japan for quite a while, then broke away from his teachers to make his own group. www.takeda-ryu.net

    Magical Aiki technniques?

    Yes, it was in Japan, as I said, taken at a public demo to honor 2nd Doshu. Nope, it's not a spoof, it's for real. Famous people like Kobayashi shihan and Isoyama Hiroshi shihan also demonstrates at the same event.

    What happened to all the Judo schools

    Oh, Kuntao? Kuntao is how Chinese-Indonesians (Chinese immigrants and their descendants who settled in Indonesia) call the self-defense arts of their ancestors. It is roughly equivalent to Quanfa in Mandarin. You are right, here in Indones, many Chinese-Indonesians with previous Kuntao knowledge...

    Magical Aiki technniques?

    In the 90s, it was at an all-Japan Aikido demonstrations to honor 2nd Doshu. I think it was Watanabe shihan who demonstrates.

    Tae Kwon Do v's. Aikido

    grab their wrist lightly. As they are about to counter-grab your wrist (to execute their patented wristlock), let go of that wrist while at the same time launch a kick to the groin or shinbone. Then throw several eulgul jireugi head punches, followed with a push kick to the abdomen. From there...
