Thread: Mr. Kiyose Nakae's Jiujitsu Complete..

    Hi,

    I had the opportunity of reading through the "Jiu Jitsu Complete" book authored by Mr. Kyose Nakae with contributions by Mr. Charles Yeager.

    In looking for the style of Jujutsu they used to demonstrate the techniques in the illustrations, there was no reference to the style. Additionally, looking through the web there was actually no reference at all regarding the style, school, or any of his students.

    Would anyone know what style of Jujutsu Mr. Kyose Nakae braught from Japan, and began teaching in the U.S.?


    Thanks in advance....

    I believe it was Kito Ryu.

    Lol. I thought that myself! I wonder if it is a forum record?

    It only came about because I bought an old copy of the same book mentioned in the OP and was trying to find some background on the author and ryuha.

    I was also secretly hoping it would be worth a fortune and it looks as though I could get 16 for it when I paid 5 so not a bad profit percentage, but I like the book so much I think I will keep it!

    Doesn't answer the question, but some notes from the files.

    In 1922, Kiyose Nakae was doing jujutsu on stage for the Keith vaudeville circuit. Standard tricks included disarming policemen, that sort of thing.

    In 1930, Kiyose Nakae, aged 46, was living in Chicago. He entered the USA in 1903. He listed his occupation as physical health instructor.

    In 1942, his US draft registration card was numbered U7891. Kiyose Nakae, address 5 West 52 St NY, NY. Age 58, date of birth 6/12/1883. Born Tottori-ken, Japan. Laurence S. Byrne Jr. was listed as contact. His business was at his home address.

    Also, in 1953, one finds his naturalization documentation: Card 7199211, residing at 241 6th Ave, NYC, on 12/21/1953; alien registration number 1326277.)

    One of my martial arts instructors ( a long time ago) told me that he had studies Nakae Kito-ryu, if this helps any.
