Sinanju

Hello, my friends in the martial arts,
I have one question, if anyone knows. My friend who training Jujutsu,told me abaot the martial art Sinanju-close combat system. He was in Croatia for a seminar that was held representative of the arts in Europe, I think it is called Goran.and he told him the skills to work under the auspices of the Takeda-Tanaka clan, Ishiro Tanaka Sensei and Takeda Sensei and they work in America, Los Angeles.
I see a clip it looks nice, looks like a combination of Aikido and Jujutsu-a.
Problem is , on the internet I could find nothing about that .
Does anyone know anything about this skill, that I came to be informed?

The best of all
"Shinanju is a village in Korea where all the fighting arts were born:
Kung fu, Karate, Ninjutsu,; they are all but shadows, Shinanju is the sun.
Most intelligent people know this already…."

Re: Sinanju

Koreans are deadly ... not so great at hair care. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vl..._Jong-Il-2.jpg

My local grocer (a Korean) has studied many martial arts and often regales with fanciful tales of exploits from behind the counter lined with too ripe fruit and oddly named fizzy drinks. One gets the distinct impression that he is a spec. ops. guy (he heavily implies) and one has to admit sitting behind that counter is good cover ... who would suspect a grocer as an intelligence operator? His wife does have a hair style remarkable similar to Kim Jong Il ... Not to mention he has got one of them there fancy ninjer samurai swords back behind the counter.

Re: Sinanju

I just love all of the TKD schools now teaching jujutsu and telling folks how it's an old tradition in TKD.
I swear if peanut butter throwing became the "in thing" we would see the anciet of art of "Korean peanut butter throwing" in store fronts all over.

You mean you haven't heard of the venerable art of Lei Ghume? I think it shares a lineage with Teh Hini.

that's nothing compare to the devastating techniques of Kung Pao. or war proven fight art of General Tso. or the O Nion of Mongolian. or the grappling techniques of Pu Pu.

Remo: You are a real pain in the ass

Chiun: That's because it is the shortest route to your brain . . .

Gosh, I love that series - may the glorious House of Sinanju always be

Re: Sinanju

You know, how many times have we heard about those who were inspired to get into the martial arts due to a movie or star?

Enter the Dragon. (Bruce Lee)

Good Guys Wear Black (Chuck! The man.)

Gotta wonder how many got into the martial arts due to movies like Remo Williams, or Gymkata, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or that horrendous Barry Gordy Dragon movie with Sho-Nuff!

And I wonder how many would ever admit to it...

How dare you leave out David Carradine and Kung Fu ... surely inspired millions. Grasshopper indeed. Not so sure about The Last Dragon.

Re: Sinanju

Being born in 1975 and an impressionable child of the 80s (was in judo and wrestling early on, but the fancy chop socky stuff always looked cooler!!), I will cop to all of those things being an influence on me seeking out and furthering my training as I went into my teen years.

Heck, I'll point blank say that I went looking to train aikido (during periods where my school didn't have a wrestling team) in the beginning of the 1990s because of seeing Steven Seagal in Above the Law.

I can see Alice's Restaurant being a prime spawning ground for many diverse types of inspiration, but martial arts is a real stretch...

This just goes to show that you truly are a warped individual
