In this week's episode, we take a look at the origins of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, starting with the history of feudal Japan and the development of Koryu Jujitsu. We discuss how the Bushi or Samurai warrior-class used Koryu Jujitsu on the battlefield, the rise of Jigoro Kano and Kodokan Judo, and the challenge matches of Mataemon Tanabe and Fusen-ryu Jujitsu. Sit back and enjoy this history lesson on the birth of our beloved art!
