Info about "Jikishin Ryu jujutsu video"
Jikishin Ryu is an old style of japanese Jujutsu (Koryu). It was founded by Terada Kanemon Masashige in the mid 1600’s. Masashige was born in 1616, and he studied Tenjin Shinyo Ryu with his father and grandfather who were masters. There were already ground techniques in this art. Later he studied Kito Ryu, which focuses on throwing from Ibaraki Sensei, and Ryoi Shinto Ryu with Fukuno Masakatsu.
Masashige and following generations developed many techniques that resemble sequences from modern Judo – grapple, throw, ground position, and submission. Jikishin Ryu actually called its art Judo in 1724 by the fourth head master Inoue Jibudayu Masayori, 168 years before Jigoro Kano used the term for his art.
