    Yeah, what's a whole lot more likely is there is a trend in grappling systems to sometimes train to grapple when clothed. Obviously there are numerous grappling systems that train more clothes than others (grappling with more and less clothes can both be effective.) What's interesting to me about the Cornish question is that we can ask the question with a straight face because of Kano's "Olympic" influence - it makes me wonder if any of Judo's techniques are from "outside of Japan." (I suspect that the techniques of Judo are like the "technique of training with clothes on," they work so they are going to show up some times in other martial arts as well.)

    IIRC many of the 'pickup' style techniques were unashamedly nicked from Western wrestling.

    I'd always heard Kano took the uwagi design from firefighter's clothing, as it was the only thing he could find tough enough to withstand the training.

    Kendo keikogi compared to judogi are typically longer, cut narrower, have a single back vent rather than double side vents, have a lighter and closer fitting collar, have ties to keep closed and are lighter in general.

    The picture of Kano Sensei shows him in pants and jacket that would be too short for modern tournament rules.
