Ju Jitsu is a Japanese martial art which was developed by the Samurai for use in battle. The name "Ju-Jitsu" translates from Japanese as "gentle skill" or "gentle art" and is most likely to be a reference to practitioners yielding to an aggressors attack before redirecting their force and using it against them.
Unlike some other martial arts Ju Jitsu does not focus on any one element of combat. A Ju Jitsu student (Ju Jitsuka) studies striking, throwing, grappling, locking and groundwork techniques.
Many of these techniques are extremely dangerous and should only be practised in a proper class under the supervision of a qualified instructor (Sensei).
