Old Meets New

At Grapplearts, Stephan Kesting and Alex Kask of the Bichu-den Takeuchi-ryu compare and contrast Japanese and Brazilian Jiujitsu, noting some of the differences in the classical approach in terms of armed environments as well as tactical considerations.

Awareness of the roots and history of jujitsu can only serve to grow our understanding and appreciation of the art, in particular as it relates to a combative or personal defense application.

BTW, BJJ may have a more direct influence from classical jujitsu than simply through judo – specifically from the Takeuchi-ryu.
