The emblem as shown above, has many meanings pertaining to the art of Juko - Ryu Jujutsu. Understanding the meaning of the emblem is an essential part of a jujutsuka's training as knowing the various parts of the emblem represent the theories and nature of nearly all the techniques within the art.
- Juko-Ryu Jujutsu defined: Ju stands for soft , Ko stands for hard, Ryu stands for system; thus the soft hard system of Jujutsu.
- The red half of the circle represents the hard phase of Juko-Ryu Jujutsu. This is our counter attack from our combos.
- The white half of the circle represents the soft phase of Juko-Ryu Jujutsu. If the jujutsuka chooses, he may simply redirect a line of attack using the circular type movements. Often, it is a mixture of both soft and hard techniques that are employed. This is our non-combo triggering attacks.
- The dark line separating the red from the white represents the half moon step (sanchin-hoko) and "S" shaped movement used in Juko-Ryu Jujutsu. These movements help provide some mid-line defense.
- The large black circle represents the circular movements of Jujutsu. Circular movements are the primary tool for manipulating balance and redirecting an opponents line of attack. Circular movements are also effective in defeating greater strength.
- The white between the octagon and the large black circle signifies the purity of the art. It is self explanatory why techniques and all knowledge should have a pure reference source.
- Each point of the octagon stands for one of the eight points of balance. Understanding balance and the methods of manipulating the balance of one's opponent is a primary key to accomplishing good techniques.
Building the "Juko-Ryu Jujutsu" fighter in MMA Pro Fighter (MMA PF) is all about using the game's design to your advantage along with a little strategy.
There are 6 fighting styles, when you first start the game it makes you select 2 of the 6, 1 stand up style (Kick Boxing or Muay Thai or Boxing) and 1 ground style (Judo or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Wrestling).
The majority of the players in MMA PF are MT/BJJ so we will build our fighter to primarily fight MT/BJJs first. The techniques & combos in the two styles that you selected are cheaper than the styles that you did not select so select MT/BJJ as your two styles.
As they are unlocked, master ALL defensive techniques.
OK here is where the Juko-Ryu Jujutsu strategy comes in, What we are going to do is let our opponents kill themselves attacking us by using combos and defense against them. I know that doesn't sound very macho but if you use attacks that trigger combos, you are going to take big damage on the counter attack and you will get beat quite often. The first offensive attack in all 6 styles cannot trigger a combo so those are the attacks we will use. DO NOT buy/learn/train any other offensive techniques.
These are the ONLY attacks that you want:
Left Front Kick KB1
Straight Punch MT1
Sitting Armpit Lock J1
Single-Leg TakeDown BJJ1
Straight Arm Bar W1
You will be given two techniques, one in MT and 1 in BJJ, if you get lucky you should have gotten the Straight Punch in MT and Single-Leg TakeDown in BJJ. Occasionally the game will give you one or both of the 2nd technique/s, if it does you will need to wait 24 hours and reset. If you decide to go with one of the 2nd techniques instead of resetting, you will not be the best that you can be.
Once you get the two techniques comes the really hard and that is collecting the challenge reward bonus money for saving $60k. Saving your ingame money first so you can collect the $60k reward in the challenges section will save you from having to buy so many Pro Points if you were to decide to buy some Pro Points, buying them is up to you.
The thing that most players don't realize is that by buying the combo, it's like learning a free technique because of the counter attack that is used in the combo AND the best thing is that the counter attack, cannot trigger a combo.
List of Dos
1) Do the challenges.
2) Train. (it is OK to buy items needed to do them)
3) Recruit sparring partners.
List of Don'ts
1) Do not buy anything other than the items needed to complete the challenges and training sessions.
2) Do not spend any money on any techniques yet.
3) Do not fight.
Ultimately you will want to 1) Fully master all defensive techniques and 2) Buy all combos. Waiting to save up the $60k will help you greatly and save you some REAL money if you decide to speed things up by buying some Pro Points.
EDIT: Things changed with the v0.75 update, start reading at post #109

Getting Sparring Partners Fast
If you want the big $$$s to get those uber skills quickly then I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a bunch of sparring partners .... that or you can whip out the plastic and buy Pro Points.
Posting a "Add me" link to your Facebook profile is the lazy person's way to grow your list. IMO it is a waste of your time because you are relying on other people to help you to grow your list and more then likely they are even more lazy than you. This method takes less effort on your part and is MUCH faster!
Adding players on Facebook
1) Go to the website's "Mass Email" thread/s, then go to the very last post.
2) Swipe over and copy the entire list of the emails.
3) Open a new browser window, go to Facebook, go to "Accounts" in the upper right corner and to "Edit Friends" and then click "Invite Friends" on the left side. The reason I had you open a new browser window is some sites may have more than one thread and it is easier to get back to it that way.
4) Paste the email list into the upper "To" box.
5) IMPORTANT: Type MMA and whatever other games that you play into the bottom "Message" box ... trust me, this increases your chances of getting added and also it helps the other person to place you into their MMA friends group if they divide their friends up like they should be doing.
6) Hit invite and you are done
7) Repeat steps 1-6 for each "Mass Email" thread on that site.
Adding your email to the list
At the end of the thread on THAT website, paste the list you used up above, place a "," then a space and then your email address and you are done. If you don't understand, just look at the what the other people did, it's easy to figure it out.
