term jujutsu means, literally, technique or art (jutsu) of suppleness, flexibility, pliancy, gentleness. For other authors, Jujutsu is a generic term that is commonly applied to all Japanese systems of hand and
hand combat in which the operator is minimally armed. Notwithstanding that, the most important concept of Jujitsu is that
of ju or flexibility, all these terms, however, represent a single principle, a general way of applying a technique, of using
the human body as a weapon in unarmed combat. According to certain authorities the art itself appeared during the seventeenth
century. The principles of ju consisted in adapting flexibility and intelligently
to the strategic maneuvers of an opponent, in order to use his maneuvers and the force behind them to subjugate him or, at
very least, neutralize his attack. History tells us that it was peace periods in Japan that married jujutsu to art and brought a lot of technical refinements. Not
only that, but develop a social philosophy behind the technical aspects of this martial arts.
That social philosophy within the classical martial arts are found in continuous reference to the elements of simplicity,
natural efficiency, harmony, intuition, economy of movement, and softness. Those
principles characterize all traditional Japanese art forms.
Hundreds of years ago jujitsu
was used by the samurai warriors of ancient Japan on the battlefield
for survival. Today, jujitsu remains one of the most effective, practical and devastating martial arts in the world. Joints and ligaments on the body are bent, torque, twisted, flexed and manipulated
forcing an attacker into immediate submission or control. Jujitsu strikes are delivered with precision to nerve regions and
pressure points throughout the body. The affects are dramatic, precise and effective. Whether forced onto the ground or attacked
by multiple assailants, one thing is for certain ... jujitsu works!
Individuals trained in jujitsu learn to defend
themselves at close range, medium range, long range, and out of range. Jujitsu offers defenses against knives, hand guns,
shotguns and clubs. Jujitsu is based on principles of physics. Because of this
fact, a weaker or smaller person is comfortably able to overcome a bigger or stronger attacker. Beginning jujitsu students
are trained in escaping from various holds. Some of those holds include bear hugs, wrist and shoulder grabs, chokes and lapel
grabs, hair grabs and attempted tackles. In addition, ground grappling, take downs, control techniques, joint manipulation,
blocking, striking and kicking techniques are taught.

a physical point of view, the benefits are about a harmonic growth (especially during adolescence), an increase of tonus and
improvement of functions like coordination, articular mobility, resistance, quickness, and reflexes. The body makes complete
and recreative exercises, without forgetting metabolic and neuroendocrine stimulations. By practicing it, we acquire sociability
and self esteem with psychological benefits such as creativity, self control, respect for the opposing, better knowledge of
one's EGO: in the final analysis, an equilibrium of physical, emotional and mental levels. In

is "forced" to imitate more prepared people, to a continuous improvement acquiring in this way a kind of positive mentality,

Jujitsu is a personal thing. There are
techniques that work well for me, but dont work well for you. There are a great
variety of body types out there, and not every position will work for all of them. You
cant make an elephant fight like a mouse and you cant make a mouse fight like an elephant.
Each person has his own reaction and that is specific to the person. Some
are faster, some are slower, some have longer legs, and some are stronger, so each must adapt his game to his biotype, physical
condition, and way of thinking and reacting to things
