Ju-Jutsu embodies a more practical "body language" in hand-to-hand fighting. Because the martial application is immediate, (from the very beginning students exercise partner work) the Dojo ethic code (Dojo Kun) is very strongly respected. It is a fusion of very efficient elements from Judo, Karate, Aikido, Tai Chi Chuan, and other Budo forms. Shihan Chinda, by applying his long-time experience of Tai Chi Chuan (since early 1972) to his Ju Jutsu teachings, has resulted in creating his own Ju Jutsu style, which is an extremely efficient yet soft form of deflecting and manipulating the opponent's power. This gives a unique and spectacular approach to his Ju Jutsu teachings.
Any mean intention to hurt the partner or to try to dominate will be severely stopped with a warning. If it is intentionally repeated, the student will be suspended from the Dojo to protect the healthy, ethical environment. The student starts with falling techniques (Ukemi Waza), attacking (Atemi Waza), blocking (Uke Waza) and combinations (Renzoku Waza) in a reestablished manner. The movements are performed with a moderate speed, to avoid possible injuries. This continues for six to twelve months, after which start the counter-articulary techniques, the throwing techniques , the grappling and joint locking techniques and self defense against weapons. At this time, the speed is increased according to the student's skills, and various combinations are performed. After the student achieves the third kyu, the green belt, (taking about two years), the free combinations and fights begin. To avoid injuries, severe rules are strongly applied, but most importantly, the class activity is based on the basic partner's protection, which is RESPECT and FAIR PLAY.

You will develop:

    • Very efficient self defense skills from the start regardless of age, sex, or physical capacities

    • High respect and discipline

    • Extremephysical and psychological endurance

    • A strong, athletic body and a powerful mind

    • A great workout for weight reduction
