Throws seem mysterious to me. Just the idea of being able to move your body in such a way that you are able to physically pick someone up without your hands and land them on their back seems like a "how did anybody ever come up with that" kind of thing. The earliest I know of throws existing is the samurai learning Jujutsu, but I'm not sure if that was the first use. I have even learned a few throws in my time doing BJJ, but I still have questions:
- Who invented the concept of body throwing and when?
- What gave them this idea?
I understand that the second question may be harder to answer, so at least try to answer just the first, the second is bonus.
