Jiu-jitsu was the unarmed fighting art of the Japanese Samurai -- the warriors of medieval Japan. If a Samurai lost or broke his sword in battle, he resorted to the striking and grappling techniques of Jiu-jitsu to defeat his enemy.
The term Jiu-jitsu literally means 'gentle art'. Jiu-jitsu emphasizes the efficient use of one's body. Good technique rather than brute strength is used to deliver effective self-defence.
The Jiu-Jitsu club offers weekly classes at both Caulfield and Clayton emphasising:
- Acquisition and perfection of martial art technique
- Realistic self-defence skills
- Development of all-round fitness
- Personal and social development
