Jiu Jitsu is a comprehensive Japanese martial art focusing on a wide array of defense scenarios and techniques. What is so unique about our style is that it is comprised of many modern day descendants of unarmed combatives such as Aikido, Karate, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Instead of studying one of these styles alone, our classes teach techniques from all of them. This includes standup defenses, multiple attacks, ground fighting, striking, weapon defenses (stick, knife and gun), throwing (judo and aikido), joint locks and submissions holds. Jiu Jitsu emphasizes the ability to turn an attacker’s own force against himself or herself, which means size, strength and flexibility are not the most important factors in achieving proficiency in this art. Classes are designed for all students of all ages, sizes and strength.
