Ju Jitsu – “The Gentle Art” – an ancient Japanese form of self defence developed by Samurai warriors for the battlefield, now teaches students self discipline, respect and honour. It is a non-aggresssive method of self protection which, instead of aggression, relies on the ability of the individual to defend themselves, first by trying to defuse the situation and only if that fails to use Ju Jitsu.

The Ju Jitsu practised at Poole Ju Jitsu Club is based on traditional Japanese techniques. The basic principle of Ju Jitsu is to use the opponents’ force against them. Techniques include throws, locks and strikes, from a standing position and on the ground. Self defence includes disengagements, or escapes from being held forcibly by an attacker.

Ju Jitsu is widely recognised as one of the foremost forms of all self defence techniques available today. It is used by police forces and prison officers as a means of restraint.
