Jiu Jitsu

A modern form of traditional Japanese martial art, Jiu Jitsu is a defensive art which uses joint locks, throws and strikes to defend from a variety of different attacks. Based on the principal of using an aggressor’s energy to their own disadvantage, Jitsu skills can be used by men, women and children to defend from aggressive situations commonly encountered today, from unwanted harassment to armed physical assault.
