Jan de Jong/Tsutsumi Hozan Ryu Jujutsu Nidan Demonstration - Introduction to the Art: Pt 2

Here is part two of Sensei Greg Palmer's Nidan demonstration grading.

One thing of note, among many, in this demonstration is the demonstration of O Goshi, major hip throw. Given you have o soto gari, major outer reaping, and ko soto gari, minor outer reaping, it suggest there has to be at the least a minor hip throw. In Kodokan Judo, Kano suggest just such a technique when he compares o goshi to uki goshi. The difference between the techniques is that the former involves lifting the legs and the latter do not. The hip throws demonstrated in this video would probably fall within the latter explanation.

  1. Very good and smooth jujutsu demonstration, pretty old school too. I'm not so sure about the aikido-style defenses against punches (good strikers tend to retract their fist after a punch and don't commit so much) but the rest was great. The teacher explaining remind me alot of my old sensei.


Your comments make my work all the more relevant as I use them to direct my research and theorising. Thank you.
