Jujitsu translates to "gentle arts" and is the ancient empty-handed fighting form of the Japanese Samurai. It was originally designed to be used on the battlefield against armed enemies. Due to the heavy armor of the samurai, striking techniques were ineffective, so they relied on the bone crushing throws, grappling controls and submission techniques to get the advantage on their enemy. Arts such as Aikido, Aiki-jujitsu, Small Circle Jujitsu, Brazilian Jujitsu and the sport of Judo all originated from Samurai Jujitsu.
The Jujitsu practiced at Peaceful Warrior is a blend of the stand-up self-defense techniques of Aikido, Aiki-Jujitsu and Small Circle Jujitsu, the throwing techniques of Judo and the grappling techniques of Brazilian Jujitsu. We keep the traditional ideals of the Samurai art alive while allowing our art to evolve so that it can be used in modern day threats. Students learn to protect themselves in any situation, standing up or on the ground.
