Testing the Waters: Ko-ryu Striking?
trying to get a handle on what goes here; if i fail at internet, oh well.
it occured to me the other day while driving to class that i have no idea what japanese striking styles were like before karate made it into the culture. nearly all of the koryu jujutsu demo videos i've seen can be classified as either protojudo and protoaikido, but i'm willing to presume that there was some level of punchin and kickin going on between deadly wrist grabs.
what direction should i look in to satiate my curiosity on this subject?
