Aiki Kenpo Jujutsu

Aiki Kenpo Jujutsu

A brief explanation about Jujutsu
Jujutsu (柔術, literally meaning the “art of softness”), is a Japanese martial art which emphasizes throwing techniques, joint manipulations and the striking of vital areas in order to effectively control, subdue or injure an attacker.  Jujutsu has many ryuha (流派, literally “mainstream school”) based on either Koryu (古流, literally old stream or classical) traditions with a clear lineage handed down from generation to generation or Gendai budo (現代武道, meaning “modern martial way”), generally based on modern interpretations of pre-Meiji Restoration Japanese armed and unarmed martial traditions.
