    So, take the good with the bad.

    My judo sensei, departed 3 years ago, used to point out that some (he claimed 'many') jujutsu schools in Japan had only a handful of techniques - optimized for the situation or the reality (e.g., some of the bow and arrow schools had a handful of jujutsu techniques, to use after the bow was inoperative, or out of arrows, or too close - first, try the knife, then, revert to jujutsu)..... only a small number of techniques that were deemed sufficient for the task at hand.

    DougNZ, while this discussion has somewhat separated itself from the original topic, as a practitioner of different styles of jūjutsu, and representative of one of them, I have to agree with many of the critical remarks you've made.

    Great CK. They forgot one thing; a trusty 1911-A1 Smile After you throw down the attacker then shoot him with a .45.  Razz
