OSG1 is currently working on the fundamental core structure of authentic Yagyu Ryu Jiu Jitsu. Several classes have been completed so far. Below are some of the things included to date.
Post your questions about the training / techniques to me here.
OSG1 Members are not only being exposed to an authentic Jiu Jitsu Curriculum but should also be focusing on the method, format, and sequence of each class. If you wish to see a class script or template, stop by the Resource Center and I will share with you. You can even help me with the content.
See you on the BattleGround

What is the reason behind using the spelling Jiu Jitsu? As opposed to the jutsu version we've used with such things as tanbo jutsu, tonfa jutsu, etc.

The true proper spelling for Jiu Jitsu is actually Jujutsu. I use the spelling Jiu Jitsu because that was the popular way to spell it a long time ago and it is somewhat nostalgic for me. For accuracy, you need to see the Kanji and know proper pronunciation. The Kanji for Jutsu - meaning art, technique or Science is the correct one. There is no Kanji with the sounding Jitsu that has that same meaning.
If strict pronunciation is applied, you would get - jee-oo jee-oot-soo - which might make the spelling Jiu Jiutsu - obviously not easy for native English speaking people. (Study your Hiragana and Katakana like I told you - (;-)
Many variations of Jujutsu spelling exist. While none of them are really wrong, only Jujutsu is the most proper these days.
I really should use the proper spelling Jujutsu and so should you.

I have borrowed the Kanji Learners Dictionary from Jennie Dieter. I looked up both jitsu and jutsu (didn't know there were so many kanji for one word), and I noticed only the jutsu version kanji had a meaning art, technique, etc.
p.s. I'm up to ni on my hiragana studies.

Seasonal changes are upon us, soon we will be training inside at the Ren Bu Kan. We should plan on cleaning the training area before it gets cold. Look at Fridays and Saturdays(or any other day) of this month and send me some feedback please.
Thank you, Jed
