    Junsei Ryu Bujutsu

    Does anyone here have any experience with Junsei-Ryu Bujutsu?

    A swift googling seems to suggest they're a made up British "Japanese" jujutsu school, looks like bad aikido with larping, and it seems that one of their instructors is going round teaching people a made up style of Hojo-jutsu. Their website lists lots of authentic ryuha but doesn't claim affiliation to any. He's just taught that fraud Gary Henshaw at Tang Lang Kung Jutsu, which is what set my alarm bells ringing.

    This is an example of their technique:

    Do you have a link to their website? I did a bit of Google Fu and it appeared to be down.

    What relationship do you have with them? Are you an ex-student? Do you run another JJ dojo?

    Their website is down, I got it from their facebook page:

    https://www.facebook.com/junsei.renmei

    I have no relationship with them directly, the fact they've affilliated with the heap of **** that is Tang Lang Kung Jutsu is what drew them to my attention. I don't even do JJJ.

    From a quick scan it does appear to be pretty dodgy UK JJ

    As a Nidan in Japanese Jujutsu I say it's standard fake Ko-ryu crap. Basically, acompliant made up bullshit Kata that mimics Ko-ryu Jujutsu without any of the historical culture context that makes it relevant.

    Do you still practice JJJ ? If so what is your favorite part of it?

    That doesn't look like Japanese rei-ho to me. Hands in front of face, really ?

    I have always wanted to do Kendo but I haven't ever made it a priority I guess. It's cool ****.
    Do you feel your blade stuff is applicable to the da skr33ts ? Or was it just something cool to play with?

    It basically looks like any other boring martial arts demo I have ever seen. **** at this point they all look the same, punch here block there etc.
