Ju-Jitsu for Self-Defense
Jiu-Jitsu is regarded as one of the most effective self-defense arts. It was originally used on the battlefields of Japan by the Samurai. It has since evolved into many different styles of jiu-jitsu including evolving into other styles such as Judo and Aikido.
If you are looking for a true self defense art, I highly recommend the Kobukai Ju-Jitsu classes. Kobukai Ju-Jitsu addresses all ranges of combat as well as common and modern weapons a person may face in a real combat scenario. Kobukai Ju-Jitsu has also been taught to the military, S.W.A.T. teams and police. It is regarded as a very effective self-defense art the enhances the warrior spirit and teaches the student how to deal with most attacks and scenarios they may face.
The techniques you can expect to learn from combat oriented ju-jitsu are…
- Striking Defense – learn essential and devastating strikes to disable your opponent as well as setup other finishing techniques.
- Standing Defense – learn effective combat throws and takedowns from a variety of attacks including punch(s), grab(s), kick(s), and more.
- Ground Defense – learn realistic and effective ground fighting skills including chokes, bone breaks, sweeps, reversals, positioning and more.
- Weapons Defense – learn to deal with all common weapons carried on the street, including gun defense, knife defense, and club defense.
What can you expect during a Kobukai Ju-Jitsu Class?
All of our jiu-jitsu classes start off with a light to moderate warmup to get the blood flowing. This allows our muscles to be warm and ready to start working. After this we do a light stretch to loosen up further.
During each class students will focus on their certain set of techniques they are working on. Kobukai Ju-Jitsu is taught in an organized system based off of charts. These charts teach you the basic techniques at each belt level. As you progress, these techniques become building blocks for your next set of techniques. This allows students to progress easily and systematically to their next level.
Students typically will work on 2-3 techniques a night. We want to focus on learning and improving; we don’t want to bombard you with too many techniques a night.
The last part of the class is focused on self-defense training. These live drills may include grappling, intense attack and defend drills, etc. These drills are essential and necessary for improvement. Learning techniques is one thing, but having the ability to use them under “stress” is what is really important.
