Re: Aikido ground technique orgin
Xu is right. Fusen Ryu is the Japanese Jujitsu Ryu that has a lot of ground work to it. Kodokan Judo adopted the Ne Waza (ground work) from fusen into it's system to compliment the nage waza (throwing techniques).
Daito Ryu was a battle field art of the samurai which allowed them to "go down and get the job done" then pop up to face the next attack.
It's all amazing stuff....great question by the way Justin!
