    One of my nastiest martial arts memories was a dojo which specialised in karate. After an accident in a competition they decided to permanently mat the hall with vinyl covered judo mats. They then...
  4. Suffolk jujutsu

    It sounds like you may have the weapons class solved, but if you're still looking for a jujutsu alternative, and Ipswich is within range, there's quite a bit of Hakko Ryu derived jujutsu there,...

    I'd got that wrong: I thought the larks foot was so that the sageo was still attached should the kurigata break. Too much rock climbing influencing my thinking.

    I think we've got a huge cultural issue here and that's giving the context difference that Hissho alludes to: Itten, according to his profile, is in Holland. Hissho and TonyU are both US based and...

    I'd recommend at least visiting a Hakko Denshin Ryu class. I've never trained with LaMonica, but do train in another Hakko Ryu offshoot. We are not koryu but I think fall in to a "koryu-esque"...

    Ippon requirements

    It's probably in the fine print of the rules somewhere but why was Mammadli's throw given as ippon? I always thought you had to be thrown clean on to your back and Wang Kichun seems to manage a...
