What is jujitsu?

The goal in Japanese Jiu Jitsu is to disable, disarm, cripple and control your opponent or even be taught how to apply fatal techniques. The art is based on real situation defence/attacks with little in the way of rules or fair play. Even today the art is being consistently developed to adapt to modern situations.
True Jiu-Jitsu is achieving the maximum effect with the minimum effort and many moves use the attacker’s momentum or strength against themselves.
There are many variations of the art, which leads to a diversity of approaches. Jiu-Jitsu schools may utilize all forms of grappling techniques such as throwing, trapping, joint locks, holds, restraining, pinning, gouging, escapes, as well as break falling, nerve/vital point lessons and striking and kicking that is what we do in our academy, we learn and practice kempo jujitsu.

Kempo is firmly undogmatic, and as such its techniques vary depending upon the preference of the practitioner and the instructor. However, certain characteristics are common to nearly all forms of kempo.

  • Kempo is a system of self-defense. Its techniques are almost entirely counters; typical schools of kempo do not teach its students how to attack people.
  • Kempo is not about fighting. A Kempo practitioner does not “feel out” his opponent. Once the kempo practitioner is attacked, his aim is to end the fight however he can as quickly and efficiently as possible by all meaning.
Jujitsu Styles Aiki-jitsu

Ancient system of combat based on jujitsu; founded by Shinra SaburoYoshimitsu during the Kamakura period (1185 – 1336) in Japan. Also known as aiki-jujitsu, it is the art from which aikido has developed. Sometime during the 13th century, a school existed to the north of Mt. Fuji that specialised in the teaching of aiki-jitsu.

It was kept secret except to a few disciples, for the most part Japanese nobles of ancient lineage. This art had originated from Kenjutsu. The term aiki, like ju, indicates a principle, a way of using the body as a weapon of combat. The method of aiki is to use

the the co-coordinated power of ki in harmony with the circumstances of combat; by blending one’s strategy with an opponent’s, to attain full control over him and over the encounter. Daitokan

School of aiki-jitsu (harmony art). In late 19th century Japan, Sokaku Takeda, 32nd in line of the Takeda family, revived the family’s system of Daito-ryu aiki-jitsu. After travelling throughout Japan to teach his system he opened a school at Hokkaido. Renamed Daitokan by his son Tokimune Takeda, it continues to operate. Aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba studied here.

Daito-ryu Aiki-jitsu

One of the earliest known Japanese disciplines to supplement weapons techniques with empty-hand combat methods, the Daito-ryu was a renowned school of aiki-jitsu. According to modern sources, the instructional manuscripts of certain secret martial arts, compiled during the feudal era, refer to the aiki-jitsu practised by this school as dating to the Kamakura period.

Daito-ryu was reportedly founded by Minamoto Yoshimitsu (d. 1120), better known in several Japanese epics as Yoshitsune. The art was practised by members of the Minamoto clan for several centuries before being inherited by the Takeda family, part of the military clan of the Aizu. (However, the specific doctrine of aikido, a modern derivative of aiki-jitsu links the origin of Daito-ryu to the sixth son of Emperor Seiwa, Prince Sadasumi, who lived in the 9th century.)

Yoshimitsu, a brilliant tactician was knowledgeable in many martial arts. He is said to have improved and extended aiki-jitsu. He realised that a warrior’s hands and wrists, uncovered and unprotected as they were, could be especially vulnerable, and he therefore developed techniques to be applied against these points. It is thought he called his system Daito-ryu Aiki-jitsu after his estate, Daito.

Yoshimitsu’s son, Yoshikiyo, also an accomplished warrior, enlarged the system’s number of techniques. During his lifetime the family’s name was said to have been changed to Takeda. The system developed further, but continued to be kept exclusively within the family and among a small number of trusted retainers. After the family moved to Aizu in the late 14th century, the name Aizu-todome was attached to this style.

How the concept of ai (harmony) was actually embodied in the ancient techniques of Daito-ryu aiki-jitsu is not known. The fl uid beauty and effi ciency of this system, however, are still evident in modern interpretations of technique.


A form of jujitsu developed by Tatsu Tanaka, who opened a dojo in Tokyo in 1952. Finding classical jujitsu unsuited to his tastes, he decided to modernise the system by eliminating injurious techniques. Kicking and striking techniques were removed, as was leg tripping, and emphasis placed on atemi-waza (vital point techniques), kansetsu-waza (locking techniques), and nage-waza (throwing techniques). Tanaka’s main purpose is to promote good health through vigorous exercise and proper knowledge of self-defence. There are some 150 basic techniques in Goshinjutsu.


A style of jujitsu founded on June 1, 1941 by Ryuho Okuyama in Japan. It is designed to handle attacks by applying pressure on the body’s keiraku (meridians) to cause intense but non-damaging pain and thus destroy the attacker’s will to continue. The aim of Hakko-ryu technique is to neutralise, control and discourage an attacker with techniques that employ minimal strength yet generate maximum efficiency.

Okuyama created his system upon the belief that the successful application of technique versus the application of physical strength could overcome attacks in a self-defence context. The ability to neutralise and control both the attacker and the situation is the hallmark of Hakko-ryu jujitsu, which translates as “school of the eighth light”.

Hakko-ryu techniques are taught in two basic ways: suwari-waza (kneeling) and tachi-waza (standing). The former teaches the student to master the hand techniques predominant in this style; in the latter, the student integrates the hand technique with footwork and tai-sabaki (body movement). Here, tensing and the use of power are discouraged in favour of suppleness and flexibility. The principle behind each technique compensates for power. Hakko-ryu does not teach specific techniques and defences for a myriad of possible attacks, but instead a thorough mastery of the principles upon which the techniques are based.


Bullies and school

Many children don’t know how to deal with bullies, and so behave submissively which often reinforces the bully’s behaviour. Often children are afraid to tell their parents or teachers that they are being bullied either by another child or, at times, by a group of kids. Sometimes the bully can be an adult: a teacher or neighbour.

Parents may believe that the child should learn to stand up for himself and choose not to intervene. Children may be scared of the repercussions of “telling”, and therefore, keep the bullying a secret.
Whatever the case, if bullying continues unchecked, it can lead to a number of problems. Not only can children be left with physical scars of bullying but mental scars and issues can develop. Sometimes symptoms emerge as physical ailments such as stomach aches or other illnesses that come on abruptly. Or a child may begin to become depressed and show signs of sadness, including crying, trouble sleeping or nightmares.

Jujitsu is fun way for both boys and girls to achieve fitness and focus. Some parents may think they also promote violence.

According to experts martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills, friendship, and comradeship, In fact, many parents whose children have attention hyperactivity disorder report great success with Jujitsu because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in kids, they start to develop self-esteem and respect for themselves, at school, on the play-ground with friends especially in life.

Personal experience

I always thought that martial arts help shape the character of the person helping him grow mentally and physically take your children to learn martial arts, your children will grow with strong principles, walking this morning I heard a mother say to her son and encouraged him to play football again, telling him to become a famous player so ‘could earn a lot of money and make a living as a king

Better teaching your children the value of life by respecting themselves and others, we teach our children to have and live the future based on respect for life, not money the money you can earn it honestly or dishonestly in both cases, the money comes and goes, respect for themselves and others remains forever

Women’s Self Defence

We run self defence classes for women. They are designed primarily for anti abduction, anti sexual assault and anti rape situations

Important facts
  • 1 in 4 women have experienced rape or attempted rape
  • 1 in 7 women have been coerced into sex, rising to 1 in 3 among divorced and separated women
  • The most common perpetrators of rape are husbands and partners
  • 97% of callers to Rape Crisis Lines knew their assailant prior to the assault
  • The majority of perpetrators are known to the victim

Self-defence and self-protection are an important priority for women. The most common crime to happen to a woman is rape, but it is more about a feeling of dominance from one person over another rather than actual sex.

Some women find themselves at a greater risk for becoming the victim of either serious assault or murder. (Rape-violence-even in the family a large percentage of women are at risk) Even though women are targeted, the overall point is that their needless victimization could have been prevented. Even women who perform the necessary steps to stay alive—such as getting a restraining order, hiding, and filing criminal charges—still end up dead (knife attack, or any kind of weapon the attacker can find or carry on him). Therefore, avoiding (prevention is better than cure) any violent attack is better that attempting to survive one.

The majority of rapes are perpetrated by men who women know. Assault on women is also a common (in the office-car park- on the street) crime because assailants assume women will be more passive, defenceless and not fight back; this has to do with stereotypes of women. The best way for women to fight back against crime is to prevent it from happening by avoiding being alone or being in badly lit areas. However, getting into such situations is sometimes inevitable.

Our academy offers you an easy way to learn highly effective self-protection that emphasize a instinctive movements and practical techniques. We teach you a fast escape techniques and maneuvres combined with powerful techniques and counterattacks
