Does anyone have experience in this martial art? They are know in Japan for their devastating punching power and also the "Mach punch". Many experts went on to become famous boxers/kickboxers always carrying with them with their trademark knockout punches. Does anyone have more info on what this system is all about?

As I recall... It was put together before WW2 from the atemi-waza from Old Judo. It was created to be more "aggressive" than traditional judo was, and to be more military. None of the moves are very complex, but there is lots of hard core hand and foot conditioning and very hard kumite to gain the skills. If you survive the training you get pretty tough, kinda like old school isshinryu
