Jiu-Jitsu & Self-Defence

WP_20171119_12_03_54_Rich_LIs

“Jiu jitsu is a physical and mental discipline that provides effective self defence and self development. It is a traditional Japanese martial art that has been tried and tested over many hundreds of years, with a wide variety of techniques which include joint locks, throws, ground work, weapon defences, immobilisation and strikes to nerve points and vulnerable parts.

It takes a rational approach to the way the body works and how to make the best use of your size and strength when dealing with an attacker. Today it is found in many self defence and restraint techniques used by police and armed forces the world over, and is the basis of the physical skills taught in most self defence courses. Practice of Jiu Jitsu encourages awareness, confidence and adaptability to circumstances. These are crucial elements in personal safety. - Aiuchi Jiu Jitsu
