JU-JITSU IS NOT A SPORT

Our system is a true “self defence” discipline , it is not a fighting sport.   We teach safety, discipline and respect for self, others and community as core to our art. 

In this martial art you learn to repel and disarm attacks using the attacker’s own weight and strength against them. It is therefore ideal for anti bullying, streetwise self defence. 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.  

There are several derivatives and descendants of Ju Jitsu that have been turned into sports. These include Judo, Akido, Karate and Brazilian Ju Jitsu ( wrestling or BJJ ) If you are looking for a martial art based sport there is also, Boxing, Thai Boxing & Muay Thai, Kick Boxing, Tai Kwon Do,  and MMA ( Mixed Martial Arts ) All of these have rules, referees points, two combatants in a game with one winner and one lose for each bout.

There are several other martial arts that are suitable for self defence. they include Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Capoeira  and Krav Maga.

Kung Fu as we westerners call it, is a very effective self defence system however it was developed as a fighting art. There is a difference. Kung Fu maximises the use of attacks on a power line and because of this 'evasion' is limited to mostly forward and backwards movements. The strikes when landed are extremely effective however Kung Fu has a very efficient system of counters and concurrent block strike movements on that power-line.
