comment How do I practice judo throws on my own without a partner?
I agree that it's an aside; it's just an interesting note. I hadn't ever seen reports that Kano had done anything but the two JJ ryu I listed. I'd appreciate any book-digging you're able to make time for.

comment How do I practice judo throws on my own without a partner?
I cannot find any reference to Kano being trained in Shinden Fudo-Ryu, however, I am without access to my library. It is commonly known that Kano trained in the Kito Ryu as well as the Tenjin Shinyo Ryu. I see several Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu sources that say "Takenaka Tetsunoke, a student of Jigoro Kano (the founder of Judo), was at one time a student of Shinden Fudô Ryû", but could you point me to your source that says Kano trained in this style?

comment Is there any documentation of newaza in Fusen-Ryu?
@Patricia I merely gathered the work of actual historians. Robin should get the credit--it's a great question that spurred my pseudo-research.

comment Quickly learning the full essentials of Krav Maga
I thought soldiers come out fit and ready to shoot a gun? My impression is that most soldiers spend very little time on hand-to-hand. (I have absolutely no actual knowledge in this domain, however.)

comment Is there any documentation of newaza in Fusen-Ryu?
@stslavik I have found the kanji, according to bushinjuku.com/new/index.php/traditional-japanese-arts/…: 不遷流柔術, or according to my transliteration using saiga-jp.com/kanji_dictionary.html, <not/negation/un-><move/transfer><style><gentle><art>. Fusen?="unchanging", perhaps implying "eternal" or "fundamental"?

+1, but I feel we underestimate the possibility of encountering someone with a season or two of casual HS wrestling back when they were younger.
