    That's different from a Kimura?

    That isn't what I did? On the 25th, let's go through them both. I did it that way, after trying with the other arm, and not getting any leverage at all.

    EDIT: oh I see, the far arm is under white gi's upper arm.

    Yeah, that's my (extremely limited) understanding.

    I can't watch this guy without thinking of all the poor imaginary children he's beating the hell out of. Why doesn't he swing at anything over 4ft? I'm thinking 4th grade trauma.

    He's aiming for the nutsack, a classic taijutsu technique.

    A+ for the headgear though...that took some creativity.

    I was going to offer a reasoned and thought out response to this thread. But **** it.

    I know some people were wondering about those uniforms they wear, and there's actually an easy answer. In Noh theatre, stage hands (or Kōken) wear a black uniform to let the audience know that they aren't actually in the play. Some plays used individuals dressed as stage hands to act as "invisible" (remember, the audience is trained to ignore them) assassins. This image stuck in the Japanese psyche and that's how we got the invisible ninja wearing black.

    Some pictures of Kōken for comparison.





    So yeah, that bit's bullshit too.
