Traditional Japanese Martial Arts

    Jujutsu (or, Jiujitsu) is considered the mother of all Japanese martial arts. Once called taijutsu or yawara, jujutsu is a system of attack and defense methods that include evading, throwing, striking, and joint locking skills. 
Nihon Jujutsu

    Judo, developed by Jigoro Kano, is both a martial art and Olympic sport that derived from classical jujutsu. It is a very physically demanding study, because right from the start, students learn to freely grapple with each other in a fast-paced, dynamic contest. The goal is to throw the opponent to the floor and work for a submission.

    Iaido is the art of drawing the Japanese sword, the katana. An iaito, or non-sharp practice sword, is used during class. Muso Jikiden Eishin-Ryu Iaido is the second oldest extant Japanese Martial Art.
