    Same follow up question with this one, as with Takeuchi Ryu. Are the choking techniques in the original curriculum/densho, or were they add on in later years (i.e., pre/early Edo or later Edo)?

    As a follow up, is Ude Shibari existant in the original densho or curriculum of the school, or is it a addition or modification that came about later in the schools history? Or, in other words, is...

    You guys may be reading way to much into this. Two questions:

    1. Do you think late Edo jujutsu has more in common with modern jujutsu or pre-Edo period, and why?

    Let me try again. I didn't mean to say the Tenjin Shinyo Ryu in that video looked a lot like the Sosuishi Ryu to which I have seen or been exposed. Actually, at least some of the Sosuishi Ryu seems...

    The wonders of YouTube

    I recently watched the video of Shibata Koichi performing Tenjin Shinyo Ryu, and it occurred to me how much more it seems (to me) like Sosuishi Ryu in flavor, as do either one of these to the myriad...

    Ah, that makes more sense, because, as I understand it, Soraito Hasseiho (the second video I reference) was an Edo period construct of Yagyu Shinkage-ryu, so it did not make sense that it would be a...

  12. Re: Aikido as Koryu

    My point was not that aikido is koryu, or anything like koryu, but rather that Mr. Lowry's statements do not adequately differentiate koryu from modern budo.
