Jujutsu techniques in Toshu Jutsu

Hakuda Kempo Toshu Jutsu is often thought of as a Karate system, but it is actually also a Jujutsu system. To illustrate some of the techniques in the system I have photographed the curriculum of Nihon Jujutsu grandmaster Shizuya Sato (10th Dan Jujutsu, 9th Dan Judo) under whose school I graded up to 2nd Dan in 2002. Nihon Jujutsu (authentically Japanese Jujutsu) includes Atemi (strikes), Nage (throws), Katame (grappling) and weapons such as the Tanjo. These are just a few examples:
