    That's interesting to hear. However, there has been speculation for some time now that Nakae taught Kito Ryu and, though it's helpful to hear yet another second-hand verification of that, it would be...

    The Never-ending Nakae Question

    Nakae constantly comes up on E-budo, about once or twice a year, and it would be great if somebody could do some research and satisfy so many people's curiosity. I think there is so much interest in...

    Mits Kimura

    Anybody know anything about a Mits (Mitsuho?) Kimura who apparently started judo in San Gabriel, CA and eventually ended up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1940's and/or 1950's and/or 60's?...

    My understanding is that, in both gari and gake, the weight is on the foot that the tori is attacking. The difference is, with the gake you kind of wrap the uke's leg (and it's usually not as pretty)...

    The more I study the nage of judo, I feel like the more confused I get with regards to their names. My latest source of confusion arises from having performed and watched others perform ouchi gari...

    Tom,

    I too once started a thread on E-Budo in an attempt to find out more about these ryu, but received little information. However, it would be great if you could post the kanji for them.

    I think I figured it out

    Ah, I think that kakuto = kaku (crane) + to (head), ie, kakuto uchi translates literally as "crane head strike". Is this correct?
