    This clip is not a Koryu JJ but it shows how grappling when weapons involved is not generally a good idea.

    If Koryu arts, especially those created before the shogunate, were developed with the battlefield on mind, newaza curriculum won't be very developed because the nature of the environment in which these arts had to be used.

    That is an EXCELLENT clip, we should host this to help answer all those Multiple attacker questions and comments we get here.

    In Uyenishi's book the textbook of jiu jitsu as practiced in Japan(1906?) he shows a few armbars and leglocks, as well as a cross choke from guard position. In the text, he makes mention of writing a book on ne-waza, but I don't believe it was ever produced. Uyenishi was one of the original japanese MA's that Barton-Wright brought to England, he returned to Japan before Kano came to England and cross-ranked Yukio Tani and Kozuimi to 2nd Dan. Uyenishi is believed to have been Tenshin-ryu. There is actually a bit more ground work in Uyenishi's student William Garrud the Complete Jiujitsuan(recently reprinted)

    GREAT video. Guy gets close, stab the neck, and don't get to the ground. Beautiful.

    I had a couple of post on the role of newaza in Koryu arts do a search for them. If you can't find them I will retype the info. (don't really want to though.)

    Nice kali work in that clip.

    I also like how you notice that no one emerges "uncut" from the fights. That's about as realistic a portrayal as you're going to get.

    I hope this won't derail the thread... but the first part of that clip was great, the attackers were going for it, but as soon as the clip was supposed to show "our stuff that actually works", the attacker went into retarded zombie uke mode. Like a knife casually flicked at your leather jacket from two yards distance is actually going to do anything (except provide you with a knife!). I suppose the bottom line is clear enough - multiple attackers with weapons against one unarmed -> you're fucked; multiple attackers against one armed -> everyone's fucked. Anyhow, leaving multiple attackers aside -- against one dude with a knife, is it really smarter to get into a striking vs. slashing contest than to get in close and try your best to control the weapon hand? (Even more so with a blunt weapon, which is pretty useless without space to swing it)
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    Well, that's the koryu newaza concept really- but it's very hard to do. If you get close to someone who is using a sharp weapon, without complete control of that hand, he can and will **** you up something awful. At that kind of range, you don't get slashed, you get stabbed repeatedly, deeply, usually in the lower midsection. You really have to focus almost entirely upon the attacking hand, while maintaining enough distance from the opponent's body so that he couldn't attack you with anything else (samurai were notorious for hiding lots of small weapons on their person). That IS koryu newaza- essencially, you are always assuming the other person can get at you with a weapon, and you sacrifice body control for security. Also, that control of the weapon hand will likely be some kind of wrist grab- something that, suprisingly enough, koryu jujitsu trains for.

    (disclaimer- I am poorly educated, not an expert, and am not speaking for ANY MA- I'm just making assumptions. Please take them as just that.)

    Blunt weapons at close range can be jammed into you- not a fun experiance. in dog brothers videos, you can see the butts of sticks essencially pried into people's necks in guard positions. Also, with a short blunt weapon, you can get someone with a "digging" motion under the floating rib if there isn't enough room to swing- try it out with a capped pen or the like.
