Ju Jitsu Hold Downs

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

There are a variety of Ju Jitsu Hold Downs we commonly use. They vary depending on the Take Down or throw used and the response given by the attacker. Different opportunities arise in different positions, your competency allows you to go with the flow and see or feel the windows of opportunity as they open.

The Leg Lock

Monday, September 28th, 2015

The Leg Lock is a technique we practice and although very simple, not as practical as most other techniques throughout the Tadashii Do Ju Jutsu System. The main reason I say that is because of the situation you are now in, if there were multiple attackers or the ground was covered in debris, this would not be a first option.

The Ankle Knee Take Down From Lying

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

The Ankle Knee Takedown can be executed with you lying down and your attacker or assailant standing over you. It’s quick and effective, making use of the natural movement and limited extent of movement in the knee joint. It gives you an opportunity to get back to your feet and escape to safety.

Sensei Malcolm Bale Ju Jitsu Training in Rugby Warwickshire UK.

Ju Jitsu is a broad based Art forming the basis of several other Japanese Martial Arts such as Judo, Aikido and Karate. The Movie File below shows us practicing breakfalls, take-downs, throws, hold-downs, ground-defence, joint manipulations, escorts and tactical jaw control.


There may be a Ju Jitsu Training Centre in your area, go check it out for yourself and see if it’s for you. Google Ju Jitsu Training “your town” and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Ju Jitsu Training is available as a competitive sport, am art of Self Defence and also as a Traditional Martial Art. They are all very different yet many of the techniques are technically similar. It’s the training you couple with the technical aspects of Ju Jitsu that makes the biggest difference. For example, with competitive Ju Jitsu training you will be doing a great deal of fitness and strength training, lots of grappling and working on Stamina. With Self Defence aspects of Ju Jitsu, there will be a greater emphasis on situational training and coping with the stress of an attack which could involve multiple attackers and simple weapons. Traditional Ju Jitsu concentrates more on the culture, etiquette, mind, body and the art of Ju Jitsu training.

Outer Wrist Lock

Monday, July 9th, 2012

A very simple yet very effective Ju Jitsu technique is the Outer Wrist Lock. Like most other joint locks it involves taking the joint to the end of it’s intended range of motion. This causes great pain allowing you to gain control of an assailant.

Gaining Control or Compliance using the Outer Wrist Lock


Like most Ju Jitsu Techniqies, the Outer Wrist Lock needs to be practiced regularly. Through repetition you can greatly improve a technique as you begin to break it down and figure out the steps involved. Repetition of practicing the technique in varied situations will also greatly increase your confidence.
