At the Bushido Kai Martial Arts Center we study a blend of standing techniques and ground techniques or Jiu Jitsu. This unique blend covers all areas of in-close contact, allowing the students to learn to defend themselves in all possible situations.
The term Jiu Jitsu means "Gentle Art". At a white belt level you will begin to learn the art of Jiu Jitsu in your regular classes.
The emphasis in Jiu Jitsu is on good technique, timing and leverage, not just strength alone. For this reason, the size of the student is irrelevant, so big and small people can work together and both benefit from the system.
Jiu Jitsu involves basic rolls and break-falls, joint locks, pressure points, chokes, takedowns, throws, holds and a variety of ground positions. Each student is required to achieve their Blue Belt in Jiu Jitsu in order to grade for their 1st Degree Black Belt in Goju-Ryu Karate. Based on Jiu Jitsu's in-close contact and Karate's strong techniques and stability, these two arts compliment each other very well.
