Kokusai Jujutsu Renmei

Jujutsu is one of the oldest Japanese Martial Arts, it has influenced the development of Aikido, Judo and some schools of Karate. 


Jujutsu, sometimes called Yawara can be roughly translated as the yielding Art. This implies being able to break a person’s internal balance and use his force against him. By this implication, it is possible for the smaller person to beat a physically stronger adversary. Many Jujutsu techniques rely on the principle of striking an opponent to stun him followed by a throw or restraint of some kind, but even within Jujutsu there is a vast diversity of styles and methods. Two of the schools studied within the KJJR are Asayama Ichiden Ryu and Kukishin Ryu. Asayama Ichiden Ryu's first stage concentrates on Wrist-locking patterns, the practice of which will develop strength in the wrists and the ability to break strong grabs. Kukishin Ryu on the other hand incorporates many throwing techniques, which rely on breaking the opponent’s balance making it difficult for him to resist being thrown



What’s the difference between Ninpo & Jujutsu?

Jujutsu and Ninpo Taijutsu are very similar in the sense that they are both complete and effective systems of Martial Arts. There is a slight difference in feel to them however when compared. This is hard to describe in words and is best left to the students to experience and assimilate for themselves. The reason for the difference is that the founders of the various schools were different people with a different emphasis on the various aspects of a particular school and of course each school developed its own spirit as it grew over the years.

Most students practice both systems as they both have something to offer, but it is up to the individuals preference.
