Jujutsu offers a sophisticated and moral method of self-defence. Jujutsu practitioners have the option to defend themselves without hurting the attacker.
This makes jujutsu a great option for police and security personnel, as well as anyone with a strong sense of justice and social conscience.
Jujutsu at Sobukan has its roots in several systems, including Hakkoryu jujutsu, Shooto/catch wrestling, Judo, Brazilian jiujitsu (BJJ) and Doce Pares Pangamot.
Jujutsu (柔術) is an umbrella term for several martial arts with lineages tracing back many hundreds of years. It is often transliterated as jujitsu, jiu-jitsu or ju-jitsu.
Hakkoryu Jujutsu is a traditional art with a strict underlying philosophy. It is a sophisticated and a noble form of self-defence that requires no physical strength. Techniques from this system are taught as learned at the Hakkoryu jujutsu world headquarters in Saitama, Japan. www.hakkoryu.jp
Judo is an Olympic sport and one of the world’s most popular martial arts, focusing on off-balancing, throwing opponents and pinning them on the ground. Submissions are also taught.
Brazilian jiujitsu (BJJ) is a popular ground grappling system with roots in Judo and Japanese jujutsu. BJJ became world renowned after the Gracie family dominated mixed martial art competitions in the early 1990s.
Doce Pares Pangamot has its roots in Filipino weaponry arts, judo and aikido. It is a flexible martial art with a focus on weapon defence and multiple attacker situations.
