Hello again. Welcome to another Jujutsu 101 post. For those who are working on improving their self-defense on their own (and hopefully with a friend or two) here is a video that has information I highly recommend you spend time on.
Take your time on this. There is much more here than meets the eyes (meaning if you just watch the video and don’t DO the exercises/drills you will NOT earn bettered skills).
Kneeling is a very basic posture in jujutsu. The past warriors of Japan were not wasting their time when they slaved to master kneeling. Remember, they had weapons, as well as other factors in the environment to worry about that sport jujutsu doesn’t have to concern themselves with.
There is a lot of depth to learn about kneeling, as well as the facedown capturing position. To learn more please go to my site at http://www.jujutsu101.com and read up on this subject. Also I invite you to go to YouTube and do a search for – Jujutsu 101 – where you will find over 50 videos to study and practice. Ok, here is the video. Enjoy!
Take care and always train safe.
