    There was nothing stopping you from training Jujutsu "alive" in 1880; you just had to be a badass. Kano's innovation was to create a modern form of Jujutsu that was appropriate for normal people to practice with only moderate risk.

    The main obstacle was the lack of jujutsu schools... jujutsu was regarded as violent and unfashionable in the Western-looking Meiji Restoration Japan. Hardly anyone wanted to practice it any more. Kano's real innovation was in marketing Judo in this social climate.

    That's the social side of the same (in this case technical) innovation. He created a JJ that went with top hat and tails instead of katana and wakizashi.

    I think classic jujutsu has just saturated the market. How about jujutsu with lime?

    That would be Mexican Jujutsu.

    Does Mexican JJ have a rivalry with Lucha Libre?

    You do realize that Gendai jujutsu is alive and well in both the U.S. and Britain, right? I can't speak for Australia, but there are still plenty of people practicing what you call JJJ in the states and in old blighty.

    Koryu jujutsu maybe not so much, but I don't know enough about it either.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    I've worked with a few gendai jujutsu groups in the use, Small Circle & Budoshin, & they work quite well with Judo, much better than the Koryu stuff I've done. Plus you don't get all that looking down their nose snobbery that makes me want to punch somebody (specifically idiots who think that their wearing hakama makes them better than me).
    "Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
    ***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***

    "The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
    ~ The Secret of Judo (Jiichi Watanabe & Lindy Avakian), p.19

    "Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."
    ~ Brigadier General Gordon Toney
