The word Jiu Jitsu (or Ju Jitsu) means "soft technique." Jiu Jitsu is a hand to hand martial art which was codified in Japan during the Middle Ages. The roots of this art reach as far back as the twelfth century when the monks exchanged techniques of Chinese Quan-fa with neighboring Japan. Today in North America, we have 2 main styles of Jiu Jitsu which are:
- SELF-DEFENCE JIU JITSU
This style of Jiu Jitsu existed for several hundred years. The primary goal was, and still is, to master the art of soft and effective defense to any possible attacks against one or more persons, armed or not. This martial art is constantly changing with ages. It is an ancient and modern art in one. We have two ways to practice Jiu Jitsu self defense:
