What the hell is Nami-Ryu!
Can anyone tell me what the hell is Nami-ryu! Everytime I turn around there is a new style
pop-ping up. Is this system good or just another friggin money making McDojo.
Nami-ryu is clearly based on the teachings of Namor, the Sub-Mariner.
It's not for those who love the ladies.
Nami Ryu is the art of the owner of bugei.com. (They have very good swords, but pricy) I usually get my cutting mats from them.

If you want Classical Jujutsu then go learn there.
I'm not saying Bugei is not a good site, it's an awesome store and you need to get your facts right. I think James is no longer the president of the company. he likes to think and act like it but he is hardly there and too busy to care. Hanwei is taking their sweet time delivering their orders and customers are waiting. Mr. Jessie is the man of the company.
So nami-ryu is a made up style. I went to his website and I did not see any ranking. He just have expiriences in different MA but no true ranking. So how can that be legit. hardly call it legit and I hardly call it classical Jujits.

Yanagi Ryu (Angier's style) is a family art and doesn't have rank to give, Kuroda Han Jujutsu is also a family art (not sure if Kuroda Tetsuan Sensei has given rank or not). I've never trained with him but have seen some videos of him on youtube and hear very good things about him from my iaido instructor. Send him an e-mail or give him a call if you have questions; he will know more about himself that anyone on this board. His Nami Ryu dojo (at one time) also had BJJ and Kyudo (taught by other instructors).
Koryu JJ does have rank it just not the kyu/dan system we see now.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
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.
I think this is kind of a special case. It's basically Angier's art with the name changed to keep him or his students from claiming a branch lineage.
