I'm a Japanese Jiu Jitsu n00b. How can I trace the origin of all the different JJJ schools nowadays? How do I know they are legit?
Does anyone have links or info on the legitimate origins of JJJ and which schools out there are actually descendants (and not pretenders) of the original styles?

If you can find a translation, the Bugei Ryuha Daijiten is the be-all end-all of Japanese koryu arts authority.
Every extant koryu can trace its lineage right back to its founder, and probably show you their additions to the makimono and denshou.

Bugei Ryuha Daijiten is a good source to have but you also need to be able to read japanese. And it hard getting a copy of it. I recommend CLASSICAL FIGHTING ARTS OF JAPAN by Serge Mol for a good english source and the furyu.com site.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

Could you dudes do me a favor please?
find the lineage or a site with the lineage of "ketto ryu jiu jitsu" cause thats what my system came from, i think its like an mma version of it, not sure tho.

the only information I can find on the Ketto ryu is a website put out by the group. Furthermore, I'm not sure Ketto is even Japanese.

Fox jujutsu is a modern jujutsu I think people who create their own styles need better names.

Ah. I suspected that it was a modern style.
That said, do you have any evidence/sites to support your claim?
