Jiu jitsu is a distinctively beautiful, ancient Japanese form of self-defense designed to suit everyone: young or old, male or female, regardless of ability.
The clever foundation principles of a Jiu jitsu class allows you to reflect the movements of your opponent back onto them using refined techniques such as strikes, throws, locks & defensive tactics. Perhaps the most wonderful element of Jiu jitsu is that it’s highly disciplined & focused, which gives you the confidence, patience & calmness to make decisions that influence day-to-day situations.
You’ve heard of the ancient Japanese Samurai warriors, right? Well the Samurai practiced Jiu jitsu, which was developed by the great masters during the Muromachi period in Japan between the 1300-1500’s.
Training was focused on teaching techniques which efficiently disarmed & neutralised heavily armed opponents by using their aggressive momentum against them. Pretty clever.
There are many schools of Japanese Jiu jitsu & both Judo & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are heavily influenced by Jiu jitsu, which makes sense. After all, if it was good enough for the Samurai …
Jujitsu is founded on the fundamental principle to maximise the efficient use of mind & body. The philosophy extends to making good decisions in every day life for the benefit of your physical health & mental wellbeing.
In short, a Jujitsu practitioner should be spontaneously prepared without conscious thought for any situation by yielding & manipulating an opponents force & direction.
But Jujitsu is much more than throws, strikes & locks – it prepares people for a healthier life, physically, mentally & spiritually.
