started a new art called budokwai :)
hi there i have started a new martial art called budokwai which i had never heard of until my friend brought me along to the class. ive tried searching it everywhere on the internet and it comes up with nothing but things to do with judo or karate,
the movement of the martial art is based on 45 degress movements and counter attacking your oppenents attack first taking their balance/strength and then applying what ever you want to do too them.
it has all knife and weapon disarms involved. the guy who teaches it i believe is ex forces retired.
when i asked him about the art he said that samurais used to use it, and also modern bodyguard's use it. if anyone knows anymore about this art would you be kind enough to share i would like to get a better understanding of its history. and no its not aikido or ju jutsu :)
