Jujitsu

Jujitsu is a renowned martial art and is in fact one of the most ancient styles that exists in the world. Its origins are in Japan; however it is also thought to have some Chinese connections. It is safe to say that Jujitsu has taken influences from many fighting styles; in fact, it has incorporated significant parts from all of them making an exciting martial art which attracts many newcomers and yet still manages to retain loyal enthusiasts.

Many martial artists are attracted to this style as it involves striking techniques, locks and throws and also focuses on defensive techniques. In addition, it teaches how to use specific weapons and this is an attractive element for some. It is worth considering that with all the knowledge of combat learned within Jujitsu itself, in addition, people also learn about respect for the techniques and respect for others. This is because martial arts in general enforce a discipline on all those attending and with a good instructor; martial artists can also learn a lot about themselves in the process. As such it is a useful style and suitable for male or female attendees.

Some aspect of jujitsu has become popular with police forces world-wide and this is because of the benefits of using the arm locks and basic submission techniques. So effective is Jujitsu, that some aspects of the techniques were even incorporated into training sessions for the Samurai.

It is worth remembering that martial arts help to build up stamina, fitness and basically provide an excellent all over work-out, but essentially people receive back what they put in. As with all fitness programs, regular training is essential to keep accelerating the individual's fitness level but also, it is important that the syllabus is learned accurately right from the start.

A good club can provide an exceptional social network too; it's a way of meeting people from all walks of life and with all different levels of fitness too. Martial artists can be very supportive of each other and also very encouraging. Fitness and technique improves steadily as does confidence and self-esteem as the student progresses through the grades.
