    What are your opinions or experiences about the modern (less than 20 years old) jujutsu styles that have been founded by western people (like Juko-ryu, et. al.)?

    Why was it bollucks?

    The reason I'm asking is because I've just started studying Hokutoryu Ju-jutsu, which is a modern Finnish jujutsu style based largely on juko-ryu jujutsu, kyokushinkai karate, kickboxing and judo among other arts. It is a full contact bare knuckle style which allows everything except face punches, groin hits and neck/spine attacks (in tournament rules, of course such stuff is practiced for self defence but not in full contact sparring). I feel it seems like a good style, it has all the goodies (kyokushin/thai type round shin kick, full contact sparring, all ranges, including standing and ground grappling and so on), but I'd like to hear from other people how they feel about these modern styles.

    I'm in a modern style and it kicks ass.
    We cover pretty much everything, striking, ground, weapons. At its core its very much still Jiu-Jitsu, buts it's more practical.

    Since he hasn't come by with a comment yet, sure.

    "Hokuto", I'm assuming, is the same "Hokuto" as in "Hokutoshin-ken", the style of martial arts used by the hero of "Fist of the North Star", the anime of which Asia just bought the entire DVD set.
