    What happened to jiu-jitsu? (not bjj)

    It seems that ever since BJJ started to spread, all talk of "classic" JJ just disappeared. Why is this? I rarely hear anything bad about it (except aikido) . Yet no one seems to practice it. Why is this?

    "Traditionally," Koryu arts don't do a lot of self-promotion. That is not to say that information is not out there. Great places to start include www.koryu.com , www.e-budo.com , and strangely enough www.aikidojournal.com.

    I'm not kidding about that last one. A lot of their contributors do Koryu.

    Gaining in popularity, at least in my opinion, is Daito-Ryu. You may want to start with the DRAJJ Hombu Dojo site at www.daito-ryu.org . Daito-Ryu was one of the major inspirations for Aikido, and features very similar techniques, although practiced with more resistance early on, with more emphasis on injuring the opponent in the actual performance of the technique, and in a more formalized curricula.

    The Koryu arts are out there, they still have value, and they are growing in popularity. You just won't see them on ESPN or in the Octagon.

    Pretty much. Kano's guys soundly defeated the JJJ guys earlier this century.

    JJJ is definitely around, but it's just not promoted and high profile.

    Hapkido is replacing it?

    Bad Os, bad!

    Old school JJ clubs don't compete so they don't get much attention. A lot law enforcement agencies use techniques from JJ, wrist restraints and stuff. I work in security and those techniques are priceless for taking someone outside when you DON'T want to turn them into a bloody mess; it looks bad on us when we do that.
