So...you know it sounds really crazy to say that a garment that has plenty of identical antecedents in Japan is an import from the West, right?

And your comment that there are no elbow or collar grips in jujutsu is so easily shown to be wrong by a quick youtube browse that I must be misunderstanding it.

So do you have a citation you can share?
