Re: Why these techniques?

Xu see Ignatius post... just claiming that it is derived from a weapon art doesn't cut it... DRAJJ is an empty hand art... jujitsu is empty hand... while some of the footwork is like sword and spear arts, and the application of the joint locks are similar to cutting with a sword... the locks are clearly derived from jujitsu... an empty hand art... for defense against armed and unarmed attackers... no proof has been offered to support the weapons based origin...
