    I was thinking the same thing, although a poor version of it. Although not the worst I've seen, the attacks were pretty limp (specifically noting the kick at 1:04 and overhead knife at 1:09) and the defences were probably mid-kyu level at best.

    I recall watching him compete in the BJJ event at SENI a couple of years ago. He won his category. All genuine stuff.

    That's what larper Judo looks like. Lots lunge punch/blocking nonsense followed up by throws of varying competency and realism.

    Honestly, I'm in no position to make judgements on an association, but since opinions are being brought up on one... I thought I might see if there are any on the one the dojo I'm currently training at is affiliated with.

    United States Ju-Jitsu Federation
    http://www.usjjf.org/home.htm

    Primarily, my group seems to be under a pupil of this fellow here
    http://www.usjjf.org/bio/RJarrett/index.htm

    The volume of accolades has me a bit nervous given what you often see in the investigations forum.

    Too newbish to make much of a judgement, however there's generally a good amount of randori and I was recently in a small group that went to a competition with a few other affiliated schools (Working on getting videos loaded, technology is my old arch-enemy.)

    If this is an inappropriate hijack, I suppose I'll just petition a mod to seperate this into its own thread. While half-asleep this all made sense to me.

    This is the demo of the what he is teaching



    Any thoughts about it?
    Judging from the video you posted, I would not go there for instruction.
    Falling for Judo since 1980

    Could be using Aiki Jitsu orAikido movements with Judo. I am told that one of Kano's ace's up his sleeve at the historical competition versus Ju Jitsu was an Aiki Jitsu practictioner. Its about small circle movements as opposed to Aikido's big circles. Those hand locks look like what the guy who told me teaches. Its not bad thing, and looks like it could incorporate easily with judo.

    Given that there was no such 'historical competition' the story you were told is probably a porky.

    None of that small circle bollocks is going to help your Judo.

    The competition he's referring to is probably the Police tournament of 1886.
    See for example
