I also think that while it can be done, it is not the first technique of choice if one wears hakama. Additionally, I don't think that anything similar can be found in the Kodokan Ate waza syllabus. If it can (or could) be found in any of the Koryu Jujutsu styles? I dont know, but I don't remember to have seen it as yet.

    However, compared to the more rudimentary forms of even Tegatana-ate (or Shuto uchi) and other basic hand-techniques displayed by the Japanese pioneers of the art in the west, I find this technique noteworthy.
    Hi Robert,

    according to Bankier, the context for Uyenishi's demonstration was that he'd been asked to show how a jiujitsuka would deal with an attack by a boxer. It's possible that he was improvising based on the old "legs are longer than arms" premise; a number of the jiujitsuka who actually did engage in mixed-styles fights with boxers seem to have used the leg scissors takedown, which also appears in the "jiujitsu vs. boxing" chapter of his student William Garruds' book.

    It's even conceivable that, after working with Pierre Vigny at the Bartitsu Club, Uyenishi was actually inspired by savate. Vigny was recorded as having used exactly the same kick against a left lead-off punch in one of his savate demonstrations.

    There is more information about Mataemon Tanabe as of late: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mataemon_Tanabe , https://www.reddit.com/r/bjj/comment...und_about_the/ . What's interesting to note is that his way of fighting resembles more that of a wrestler then a standard jujutsu man of the time.
