Rear Mugging Escape

Monday, October 5th, 2015

The rear Mugging escape is practiced standing, seated and kneeling. The techniques is very similar in each position, however, when kneeling it’s harder to gain leverage to throw so more emphasis is given to the arm around the throat and an improvised wrist lock is applied in the process.

Hold Escapes

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

As we are a Self Defence style of Ju Jitsu, much of the emphasis is directed towards hold escapes. The techniques we teach are simple and very effective. The Movements are all gross motor skills virtually everyone can do. This is an important factor in Self Defence as most people are simply incapable of performing fine motor skills in a high stress situation.

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 Outer Reap Throw is another quick and effective Take Down, when the Tear Down isn’t quite enough, this provides the necessary extra required for full effect.

The Tear Down or Walk-Through as we commonly refer to it, is a simple form of Tactical Jaw Control. It is one of the quickest, simplest and most effective Take Downs to perform. Control the head and you control the body.

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.

Two Knee Take-Down

Monday, September 28th, 2015

This is a Two Knee Take-Down from the front. It’s similar to a Rugby tackle but done from a close-up position. Your shoulder drives forward ┬áinto the stomach area of your Assailant, whilst your arms are wrapped around their knees, pulling towards you.

This technique is most commonly used as part of our Escape from a front headlock.

Ju Jitsu for Self Defence

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

Our style of Ju Jitsu is designed for effective self defence.

There are some features that make it different from other styles of Martial Arts. Firstly Ju Jitsu is a broad based art which forms the basis of Judo, Karate and Aikido.

The techniques we teach are all Gross Motor which are simple body movements most people are capable of performing. This is critical in a high stress situation as fine motor skills often cannot be performed.

The Cross Over Arm Bar

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

The Cross over arm bar involves a combination of locks on the shoulder, elbow and wrist happening simultaneously.

Like many Ju Jitsu techniques, this can be learned very quickly and performed in its basic format but will be greatly improved over time with practice.
