Hi welcome back! Now, I will talk about Jujutsu.

Do you guys know what is actually Jujutsu? Have you ever wonder on where is it coming from?

Well, the story will begin like this...

Jujutsu is a Japanese martial art and a method that used for defeating an armed opponent in which one not uses any weapon or only a short weapon. The word jujutsu can be spelled as ju-jitsu/jujitsu, jiu jitsu, ju-jutsu.

According to Wikipedia (2015) " '' means gentle, soft and flexible while 'Jutsu' brings the meaning of 'art' or 'technique' and also manipulating the opponent's force against himself rather than confronting it with one's own force".  It then developed to combat the Samurai of feudal Japan as a method for defeating an armored opponent in which one has no weapon or only a short weapon. This is because striking against an armored opponent proved ineffective, so the practitioners started to learn that the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy are in the form of pins, joint locks and throws.

For your information, in order to know whether the Jujutsu is a traditional one, it has it's own system which based on it's own history : 

(i) Pure Classical Systems.
(ii) Classical Hybrid Systems.
(iii) Classically Based Systems.

But now, people has modernized it into a modern and better version. There are four major techniques in modern Jujutsu which are : 

  1. Nage-waza (throwing techniques)
  2. Katame-waza (locking techniques)
  3. Atemi-waza (striking techniques)
  4. Kansetsu-waza (joint techniques)

   IN SHORT..  

The most IMPORTANT part in this martial art is it is using 60% of your skills and strategies and only 40% of your power. 

So now you guys know that not all the martial arts are using violence.
