Underneath the recreational courts of Nihon University School of Medicine is a dojo where students practice jujutsu: the parent martial art to judo. The mat is suspended from the ground, which causes the floor to shake with every stumble, grapple, and toss.

Ryo Yamaguchi, a fifth year medical student at Nihon, introduces me to his fellow classmates and holds a practice to demonstrate jujutsu.
