A Short History of Martial Arts...
Jujitsu literally means the "art of softness," or "way of yielding". It is arguably the oldest of the martial arts and is the forefather to some of the popular modern martial arts such as Judo, Aikido and some forms of Karate. Jujitsu is a Japanese martial art which uses a combination of strikes blocks, holds, locks, chokes and throws to overcome an opponent. It is an extremely effective form of self-defence and a good form of overall physical exercise. Find out more about our Jujitsu Classes
Judo, which means "The Gentle Way", was founded in 1882 by Jigoro Kano who was a Jujitsu master and specialised in the throwing and immobilisation techniques. Judo is known for its spectacular throwing techniques but also includes numerous techniques for controlling an opponent while on the ground. Judo is the most widely practiced martial art in the world, and is the second most practiced sport worldwide (Football is no1). Find out more about our Judo Training
Ushiba developed Aikido in 1920 all derived from the old Jujitsu moves and techniques. Elements of the art can be traced back 2000 years or more, when the gods kajima and kadori tell of how the lawless inhabitants of the eastern provinces were punished with Jujitsu techniques.
