This art (jutsu) consists of locks, entanglements, strangling, striking and kicking. The strikes is done in such a way that it is difficult for the opponent to see them coming. When the opponent grabs you, you must always have one arm free.
There are no kamae (and there are many kamae). One imagine a kamae mentally inside but does not show it physically on the outside. There is a Budo saying: “Show your outer weakness, but maintain your inner strength.”From Mats Hjelm’s website kesshi.com
