What is Jitsu?
Jitsu is derived from Jiu Jitsu meaning "yielding" or "gentle" "art". Our style
of Jitsu is based on a variety of throwing, locking, striking, grappling and
weapon defense techniques.
Our method of teaching is based on transitional flow. Students are taught that
there is no one correct technique to control an aggressor, Defense is based
initially on avoidance followed by warning and finally full application of a
technique or series of techniques in order to neutralize the situation.
Jitsu, however, is more than just a combination of techniques. It is also a way
of life, the skills that are taught and learnt in the class can be applied in
all areas of your life. Improvements in health, confidence and self-discipline,
humility and concentration all benefit the students as they progress through
The school environment promotes all of these positive items and is also a place
of friendship. Training develops deep bonds between students and this is
encouraged with frequent social events organized by each of the schools.
