WHAT IS JAPANESE JU-JITSU

Originally developed by the Japanese Samurai warrior, Ju-Jitsu is a method of defence and offence without weapons in personal encounter. For many centuries in Japan it was practised as a military art together with fencing, archery and the use of the spear.

Japanese Ju-Jitsu is known as the Mother Art, and is the oldest documented Martial Art in history. Many styles have branched from Ju-Jitsu including Karate, Judo and Aikido.

Ju-Jitsu is not a contest of muscular strength. Nor is its prime purpose to damage or maim, but merely to incapacitate one’s opponent for the time being by means of simple techniques, holds, locks, and throws.  Ju-Jitsu techniques and holds can be very simple.

A thorough knowledge of them, gained only with constant practice, should develop in one a feeling of strong self-confidence. This confidence causes a Ju-Jitsu expert to react almost instinctively in the event of sudden attack and to manoeuvre any situation to his or her own advantage”.

The Ju-Jitsu instructor must have a thorough and detailed knowledge of the human body; its strong and weak areas, where the balance (centre of gravity) lies, and how to respond calmly in a potentially stressful or confrontational situation.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Although Ju-Jitsu was developed almost 400 years ago, it’s basic intentions remain unchanged. Through Ju-Jitsu, an unarmed Samurai would be able to defend himself against both armed and unarmed opponents.

Unarmed combat skills today have the same purpose: to protect oneself from harm against armed or unarmed attackers.
Whilst the primary focus of teaching at Jikishin clubs is based on unarmed self-defence, we also cater for those who wish to train in Ju-Jitsu as a sport, those who want to keep fit, and even those who just want to have fun while learning something new.

Our Training teaches timing, flexibilty. agility and knowledge of the body. When these are combined, the student learns the ability to control a confrontational situation as much as to prevent injury to the opponent as to protect himself.
Ju-Jitsu is a skill that lasts a lifetime. We not only train students to defend themselves, but also work on physical and mental development whilst having fun. Training is provided in a friendly environment. This provides the students with a better quality of instruction and allows them to develop at their own pace.

Although Ju-Jitsu is based on unarmed defence, the art of using traditional Japanese weapons is still practiced today. This is because it’s considered to be beneficial to our student’s skills base.
