Ju Jitsu at North Lakes

Ju-Jitsu emphasizes turning an attacker's own force against him or herself, putting them off balance. Ju-Jitsu also emphasizes certain grappling moves and strikes to vital areas.

A Ju-Jitsu student is expected to learn how to gauge the force of an opponent's attack and use it against him, evade attacks, use leverage against an opponent and how to attack nerves and pressure points.  It is therefore ideal for anti bullying, streetwise self defence.

Also, because it does not rely on strength it is ideal for women & children to defend against larger stronger attackers. Students always achieve increased confidence, fitness & self discipline through Ju-Jitsu. 

This particular style of Ju Jitsu has no sporting component. If you wish to win medals and trophies you will need to find a Karate or Judo club that enters competitions.

Ju-Jitsu loosely translated means "science of softness" or "gentle art" and is applied to many schools of unarmed and hand-to-hand combat. The soft grappling style was intended to help unarmed soldiers to fight against armed enemies in any way possible, using the least amount of force necessary. Ju-Jitsu was the primary unarmed combat method of the Samurai. Aikido, Judo, Karate and Sumo are modern day descendents of Ju-Jitsu. Modern Day Ju Jitsu is a very effective method of self defence rather than a fighting sport.

The main goal in Ju-Jitsu practice is to cultivate a person's mind and body.We teach safety, discipline and respect for self, others and community as core to our art.

We also teach Anti-Bullying, Stranger Danger and have a classes for students 8 & under, 11 & under, 15 & under, seniors up to any age, beginners to advanced
