JU-JITSU

Traditional Japanese combat, Ju-Jitsu training is a deadly art that was once the secondary fighting form used by Samurai Warriors. Ju-Jitsu is a ‘soft-form’ martial art. Its power is derived by understanding body mechanics and redirecting an attacker’s own energy against him. It literally means ‘the gentle art’.


Because Ju-Jitsu techniques do not require a great deal of strength to perform, it is an ideal self defense form for smaller individuals. Ju-Jitsuka, or students of Ju-Jitsu study techniques to defend against attackers by using wrist and joint locks, throws, strikes and pressure point techniques.
