Example text

The submission holds that were so much a feature of their groundgrappling game—all their victories in the challenge matches were due to submission holds—could be made a safe part of randori training if both partners agreed to stop when a submission hold had been successfully applied. In addition, one of the most well-known Fusen ryu students, Yukio Tani (whose fascinating life we shall soon look at in detail), regularly employed randori training with his students in England, a place to where he emigrated at the turn of the 19th century.

At that point, the control that they can exert on each other totally changes the character of the match from the situation where neither had any hold on the other. Tanabe realized that the judo players were skilled in the standing position when they had a grip on their opponents. This is where they had been able to trounce their opposition in the previous challenge matches, such as at the Tokyo police tournament. The gripping and throwing skills honed by live training (randori) had given the judo representatives a decisive advantage against the classical jujitsu schools in tournaments.

Realizing that his judo was sorely lacking in ground-grappling technique, he quickly sought to have Tanabe teach his curriculum to the kodokan students. One of the most well-known and plausible accounts of the challenge matches between Fusen ryu and kodokan judo comes from Kainan Shimomura, 8-dan in kodokan judo. In the September 1952 edition of Henri Plée’s Revue Judo Kodokan, Shimomura wrote: 25 MASTERING JUJITSU Encounters between professors of the state were the exception.
