We are primarily a close quarters, grappling martial art, with an emphasis on self-defence situations. We do some vital point striking, defensive movement, a lot of joint locking, falling, and a lot more throwing. We learn defences from punches, kicks, headbutts, a variety of grabs, armed attackers, and multiple attackers, both armed and unarmed. At Mudansha grades Ju Jitsu is taught via pre-arranged kata like movements with a partner whilst the techniques or tools of the art are learnt. At Yudansha level Ju Jitsu is experienced in a more free format.
