    "Hokuto", I'm assuming, is the same "Hokuto" as in "Hokutoshin-ken", the style of martial arts used by the hero of "Fist of the North Star", the anime of which Asia just bought the entire DVD set.
    Oh, <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>. Well, the word is apparently the same (the jujutsu style is named after The Northern Star because it was developed here way up north) but I would guess the manga hero isn't using this particular style of martial arts. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    Kirves: It was bollux because it taught ineffective crap badly, none of the stuff worked if your opponent actually fought back, and after learning some judo and aikido, i was able to defeat people who had purple belts when i hadn't even got past white belt yet...

    Kirves: Its called Jishin-do jiu-jitsu, its a canadian style with a couple schools across the country.
    sorry but dont have a webpage for you.

    I think its kinda foolish trying to rate all modern Jiu-jitsu. Seeing how there were so many different schools in Japan at its height, there's bound to be a wide range of quality.

    Yeah, of course it's no use trying to rate them all in one basket, but it is nice to hear opinions on some of them. I suppose you feel the Canadian style is good? Can you tell me about it, what things you like about it?

    I wouldn't call it "the candian style", its just a style that is in Canada. I'll try and find a page for it.

    More than anything I've got respect for the instructors. Several are ex-cops, most have backgrounds in other MA's, and they aren't afriad to change the sytem and explore other ideas.

    I'll try and find a website or two.
