Dr.Mavashi,

If I understand you correctly you are talking about misplaced joints in relation to the angle of attack, right?


平和,

Well ... I am talking about having a "stick of vectors" not a "fan of vectors" I don't know how to explain this better.

Dr.Mavashi,

For about the past 5 years I've been practicing Nakamura Ryu Battodo, Mugai Ryu Iaihyodo, Shinto Muso Ryu Jodo, and Atarashii Naginata at the Capital Area Budokai (http://capitalareabudokai.org). Previously, through college, I did 5 years of aikido (Seishinkai, with some exposure to Yoshinkan and Kokikai), and I started kendo in Japan around 2000, and have continued off and on since then (I just don't have the time, these days).

I started with Muay Thai for a few months, but found out it wasn't for me...
Then I moved to 5-Animal Kung Fu, and have been practicing diligently it for 4 years. I was always playing with wooden swords as a kid, but I only started practicing swordsmanship 5 years ago. I am studying the Chinese Broadsword (Dao) as well as the Broken Sword (Duan Jian) styles of Swordsmanship. I was accepted as an apprentice for a style of Quickdraw, as well as Continuing-and-Returning sword.
(Basically looks like Iaido with Chinese Dao techniques, but the sword is shortter and wider than a Katana, known as 'Beile Dao')

I have searched all my life for a school of Japanese sword art, but the area where I grew up, as well as the area where I live now have very few Martial Arts schools. The area is overrun by Olympic Tae Kwon Do schools...

I Did Jiu-jitsu during high school (5 years ago), but I stopped because now I'm against violence Laughing

However in Indonesia it's not like the brazilian style, here jiujitsu is mixed with a bit of aikido, karate, judo, and even pencak silat moves.

My sensei told me the style was transmitted to Indonesia during World War II when Japan occupied South East Asia, by a soldier named Ishikawa (not clear what his first name is, some say its Yoshen, but it doesn't sound Japanese). The locals here are more used to fighting with traditional pencak silat, so they incorporated a few moves here and there.

Here they call the hybrid style the Ishikawa Kyushin-ryu Jiu-jitsu. However this is disputed because the Japanese didn't recognise it.

The kyushin name perhaps is a corruption from Sannosuke Ueshima's Kushin-ryu karate which has its roots on Konshin Yujoyitsu jiujitsu. There is kushin ryu karate, but never a k(y)ushin ryu jiujitsu, only in Indonesia. Not sure why.

The dojo that I went goes under the name of Institute of Jiu-jitsu Indonesia (IJI), there many are other dojos, each of them claiming to be the original, trying to get recognition from the Japanese honbu.

But one thing I know, The training in my dojo was often quite brutal, some dojos even make the students do upside down fist push ups on concrete, we get full contact kumite and randoris, and oh yeah mistakes are often rewarded with punches right to the belly.

Belt promotion exams are hellish and will get longer the higher the grade, the urban legend said the blue belt to brown belt is notorious cause you have to fight against three opponents blindfolded until you win.

However with all its problems corcerning the origins, and the brutality, I could say all round it's fairly effective, they teach basic self defense against muggers armed with knifes, breathing techniques, and the use of weapons like bo-jutsu and tonfas.

Some of the grappling and throwing moves might seem more aikido and judo-ish, and UFC style full force punches are common. Here's an old video of two brutes fighting (my 2 sensei).

They're obviously wearing aikido uniform, but on a normal training it's usually karate/judo style dougi.

the other one is from a newer dojo

I hope this will be a good read, just letting you know that martial arts can and do evolve

I have experience training in the following

Krav Maga
BJJ
Muay Thai
Kickboxing
MMA

and I have taken a few classes but never seriously studied others such as

Judo
Several types of Karate
Kali/Eskrima

and the odd seminar here and there

I am personally a big believer in sparring and dislike schools that claim to teach useable self defence yet do not spar. To many black belts are confident they can use their skills in a fight despite never having been punched in the face.

I highly doubt anyone can beat 3 guys at the same time blindfolded.
