Ju Jitsu, Masterton

Ju Jitsu

The style of Japanese Ju Jitsu (Nihon Goshin Jitsu) taught at Masterton Judo & Ju Jitsu Academy is from two schools - Shorinji kan ju jitsu and Olivecrona ju jitsu.​

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. 

The syllabus is that of the Shorinji Kan ju jitsu school, taught via the principles within Olivecrona ju jitsu.

Mondays & Wednesdays 7.30pm to 9pm

Nga Totara Dojo is affiliated to Jitsu New Zealand our styles organization and the NZJJF, the body that regulates New Zealand Ju Jitsu Clubs and organizes regular competitions and training events.​
