Fusen Ryu jujutsu video
Info about "Fusen Ryu jujutsu video"
Fusen Ryu is possibly one of the youngest jujutsu school. Fusen Ryu jujutsu style goes back only to the end of Edo Period (Bakumatsu). The art is well known for it’s practicality and influence on modern day ground work and submission. Though a Koryu, Randori is still a common practice today. In 1900, Kodokan Judo suffered a school defeat in a contest with Fusen Ryu jujutsu. Fusen Ryu specialized in ne waza or grappling techniques, and this specialty carried the day.
Typically, Jigoro Kano, founder of Kodokan Judo, persuaded Fusen Ryu’s headmaster, Mataemon Tanabe, to reveal the core syllabus to Kano, and Kano sought out a similar style Jikishin Ryu ju jutsu to incorporate its techniques into the Kodokan syllabus. From this point on, Kodokan Judo began a trend toward ne waza.
