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 core elements of our style of Jiu-Jitsu are:
- Throwing techniques
- Restraint and control: Joint-locking and other arresting techniques
- Pressure point striking
- Practice against realistic common attacks
