Often referred to as "The Gentle Art", jujitsu is a system of self-defense designed to overcome aggression through the utilization of escapes, joint manipulations, throws, and constriction techniques. Relying on fundamental principles of balance rather than strength, jujitsu is ideally suited to everyone, regardless of age, sex, or physical abilities. The techniques are intended to address all forms of aggression, yet provide the defender with the ability to determine the level of response appropriate for the circumstances encountered. Students are taught a system of self-defense through which they will develop self-confidence and promotes an overall sense of well being.
