LEARN HOW TO SEAMLESSLY BLEND STRIKING, THROWING, AND GROUND FIGHTING
JuJitsu (sometimes spelled Jiu Jitsu) emphasizes utilizing an attacker’s own force, or energy against him/her. JuJitsu directly translates to “gentle art”. The main overriding principle which is prevalent in all Ju Jitsu techniques is that they require minimal effort and they achieve maximum efficiency. Jujitsu techniques can be used when striking, grappling, or ground fighting. Ju Jitsu uses a “no resistance” philosophy to combat. By using redirection, off balancing and elusiveness, Ju Jitsu students can efficiently disarm or defeat their opponent.

Many years ago the Japanese Samurai practiced jujitsu and followed the bushido way. Bushido, meaning, “way of the warrior knight” was a code of conduct which outlined the way Samurai should behave. Some examples of martial arts that have derived from Jujitsu are Judo, Aikido, Sambo, Karate, BJJ, Krav Maga, and Kenpo. Many techniques seen in mixed martial arts sport fighting contests like the UFC are derived from Jujitsu.
