Ju Jitsu

Ju-Jitsu (柔術, jūjutsu or jiujitsu) is a Japanese martial art that can be translated as “yielding art” or “gentle art” (jū: yielding, gentle, soft or flexible and jitsu: art or technique). The term jūjutsu was probably used for the first time around the 1630, likely derived from the word yawara which comes from the verbs yawaragu (to soft) and yawaregeru (to make soft). Jūjutsu is an alternative reading of yawara-jutsu.

Ju Jitsu expresses the philosophy of yielding to an opponent’s force rather than trying to oppose force with force. Manipulating an opponent’s attack using his force and direction allows jujutsuka to control the balance of their opponent and hence prevent the opponent from resisting the counterattack.

Basic methods of attack include striking, punching, kicking, throwing, pinning or immobilizing, strangling, and joint-locking. The bushi (the warriors) are also trained to develop effective methods of defense, including parrying or blocking strikes, receiving throws or joint-locking techniques, falling safely and knowing how to yield in order to neutralize a technique’s effect, releasing oneself from an enemy’s grasp, and changing or shifting one’s position to evade or absorb an attack.

Kobudō (沖縄古武道 ), literally ancient martial arts or ancient martial way, is an old martial tradition that involves training and practice with a variety of hand held weapons – metal and wooden weapons, bladed and non-bladed weapons.

The origins of kobudo are difficult to draw since its traditions were handed down by word of mouth. Only certain people were allowed to train with weapons and trainings were often done in relative secrecy. That said, it is possible to relate the modern kobudo to the feudal Okinawa and Japan, the ancient China and the pre-colonial Philipines.

In our system, the weapons that are studied and taught are: Nunchaku, Tonfa, Kama, Sai, Naginata, Bo, Jo and Katana, according to codified programs that include kata (forms) and applications.

This course is an integration of the regular ju jitsu courses.



The lessons consist of light warm-up and stretching and techniques adjusted from Ju-Jitsu in order to be efficiently applied in a real life situation.

It is suitable for adults and juniors.

Ginnastica & Movement

Ginnastica is a term that indicates a variety of sports involving sequences of movements that generally require strength, elasticity, and kinesthetic ability (so-called coordination).

Ginnastica is certainly one of the oldest sports: it has developed from the exercises that ancient Greek soldiers performed to stay in shape, to improve their ability and flexibility.

The association with “Movement” is to instill the idea of freedom behind the word.

It is suitable for adults and juniors.
