The History of Ju-Jitsu

Ju-Jitsu is the ancient martial art of the legendary Samurai. It can be traced back to at least 2,500 years ago in Japan. In Japanese mythology it is said to have been used by the gods Kajima and Kadorai to discipline the lawless inhabitants of the Eastern provinces.
Through the years many other martial arts have derived from Ju-Jitsu, the most popular being:
Judo (Throws and ground-work)
Aikido (Joint-Locks and the redirection of force)
