What is Jiu-Jitsu?

Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art which uses the opponents own strength against them, rather than putting your own strength directly against the adversary. The main focus of Jiu-Jitsu is not striking but in grappling your opponent into submission.

What is the history of Jiu-Jitsu?

Jiu-jitsu has a very long and rich history. It is beneficial for us to understand the reason this martial art was born. First, the translation of the terms from Japanese are JIU - GENTLE (yielding flexibility) and JITSU - TECHNIQUE or ART. The “gentle art” was developed to subdue and defeat armed and armoured opponents; using the weight of the armour and the momentum of the weapons to put an attacker off balance and open for counters. The focus was on defeating samurai who held advantages due to their equipment. Later, due to the influence of Neo-Confucianism and its distaste for war, armor and weapons became largely decorative. Jiu-jitsu continued developing into a martial art that focused on encounters with unarmed and unarmored opponents.
