Martial Arts Style:  Jujutsu/Tsutsuji
 This style was included in the AD&D oriental rules as a book rules version of Jujutsu; however, in converting it to Multiverser, it has been treated as a fictitious style, to allow players and referees familiar with Jujutsu to adapt that more precisely under the Multiverser rules.
...for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons(tm) in MyWorld.
...for Multiverser.

Tsutsuji 
The large variety of maneuvers in this style give it versatility; its odd approach to throws make the hand, not the body, the principle part, but this enables upper level practitioners to throw an opponent while hitting a vital area in the same attack sequence.

Untitled can have up to five maneuvers.  Fall (1) reduces damage from falls, et cetera, by half.  Feint (1) throws away one attack to gain +2 to hit on the next.  Pain Touch (1) worsens victim's chance to hit and to be hit by 2 for up to three minutes.  Meditation (1) has no effect on duels; the Kensai/Shukenja Variant Concentrated Push (1) is effective in limited field (ring competition) combat, and increases in effect, possibly damage, with level.  One more maneuver may be known.  Instant Stand (2) returns the fighter to his feet at the cost of only one attack.  Stunning Touch (2) can disable a humanoid opponent for up to four minutes.  All-around Sight (2) rarely affects dueling. Untitled can have up to five maneuvers.  The tumbling maneuvers Quick Stand and Fall Impact Absorption are usually mastered first, followed by Immobility to counter throws and pushes, then the tactical maneuver Fake and the heightened senses Panoramic Awareness.

Honored Master adds one, possibly two, level 3 maneuvers.  Hurl (3) does 4d3-2 damage and throws the opponent up to four feet, effective for limited field (ring competition) combat.  Immovability (3) greatly increases the fighter's chance of remaining on his feet where he is, a great and rare defense in limited field (ring competition) combat.  Mental Resistance (3) resists certain magics, but rarely affects duels. The Honored Master almost always adds the tactical analysis maneuver Following Finger.  He may also be professional at the special damage Pain Inflicter.
Most Honored Master knows all of these. The Most Honored Master usually has Control Resistance, to fight efforts to influence or possess the character.
Most Highly Honored Master add Great Throw (4), doing 6d3-3, but effective in limited field (ring competition) combat. The Most Highly Honored Master learns Alert Rest, which adds nothing to combat ability but is useful in other ways.

M. J. Young's Dungeons & Dragons Materials as source material for many campaigns and situations;
and all you need to create a character, Character Creation for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First Edition.
