    Yeah. That's a crazy little piece of history. For most of the article you find yourself tetchily agreeing with the wrestler as the jujitsu man spews bullshido... and then at the end the jujitsu guy presents the highest-percentage submission ever and the wrestler goes, "Nope, that'll never work."

    It is worth mentioning though that as judo spread out from the Kodokan, it was taught in schools that had been koryu jujitsu schools, alongside koryu jujitsu curriculums. Some of the secretive koryu mentality and love of "deadly" techniques likely remained for a long time in schools outside the Kodokan, so it's not altogether surprising some of the jujitsu men who made it to the West are found making some very odd comments. Apart from the odd semi-mystical comment on principles of the higher kata, you don't hear much recorded from Kano himself along these lines.

    if you read from the book "mastering jujitsu" u'll see that it also backs up my point.. i'm too lazy to make citations right now. On the sidenote alot of you guys that are stating "armbars" are in fact not armbars.. we're talkin about on the floor and straight arm. Not keylock (americana) , kimura, or the russian arm drag (takedown//arm bar/break technique)

    Higashi wasn't a judoka. He was a jujustu guy who came to the US, but wasn't judo. He and Hancock wrote a book about "Judo" called the Complete Kano Jiu-jitsu, that got him in some trouble with Kano -- since it wasn't Kano's Judo/jujustu.

    Towards the bottom, this 16th century India relief looks pretty dead on for a reverse armbar from some sort of pass from half-guard.



    From what I've read, Indian MA were heavily influenced by the Greeks ala Alexander the Great, so this may be an example of one of the pankration techniques that the Indians adopted.

    That's probably kama-sutra, though.

    This link is about Talhoffer's dagger methods. Item 174 shows what apears to be an armbar as part of a dagger defense. http://www.truefork.org/DragonPreser.../Talhoffer.php

    NOTE THE TOPIC NAME

    armbars - ON THE GROUND

    every grappling system ever has that standing armbar/throw thing.

    True, I was refering to the second panel of item 174 where the two look like they have wound up on the ground and the one on top appears to be applying an armbar of sorts.

    Seriously... not a well thought out question. Have you ever researched the roots of Jujitsu in Japan? Where do you think the Japanese learned it?
