    UWE Jitsu

    About

    Jiu Jitsu (meaning gentle art) is a martial art originating from feudal Japan.  Although it has the same roots as Olympic Judo and the more modern Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the style taught (shorinji kan jiu Jitsu) is self-defence orientated rather than sport based and so could be considered traditional Jiu Jitsu.

    The Jiu Jitsu syllabus includes joint locks, throws, blocks, nerve points, strikes (kicks and punches) and ground fighting, plus weapon defences to create an adaptable system for self protection that is suitable for men and women to counter aggressive situations from harassment to actual assault.

    Jitsu is a progressive martial art that offers a means of personal and physical development as well as an effective system of self-defence. Regular training helps to improve strength, fitness, flexibility, co-ordination and posture. Additionally training can help improve self-esteem and self-confidence.

  • Judaku-Do Karate – In Studio

    The essence of Judaku-Do Karate can be found in the Japanese words themselves. Judaku means acceptanceDo means way (i.e. chosen path) and karate means open hand. Thus, the literal translation of Judaku-Do Karate is the way of open-handed acceptance.

    What this means practically:

    The Physical - Judaku-Do utilises Shotokan karate; a style of karate characterised by deep, strong stances and powerful techniques. This style is used as a framework for the development of the physical aspect of your training (i.e. technique, speed, physical power etc). This physical aspect is emphasised by the Karate (i.e. ‘open-handed’) part of the name Judaku-Do Karate.

    The Philosophical - The Judaku-Do philosophy is fundamentally the way of approaching any occurrence in life (such as danger, bereavement, disappointment and loss) with complete acceptance. To acknowledge and fully accept such events is to be liberated from them. Acceptance has two aspects – acceptance of how you the individual feels about a situation (i.e. allowing yourself to feel as angry/sad/hurt as you do), and acceptance of the situation itself (i.e. allowing thing to be as they are. ‘It is as it is’). That’s not to say you sit back and do nothing. That would be passive acceptance, or merely ‘giving up’. Active acceptance is where you allow yourself to feel as you are and for things to be as they are, then taking the necessary steps to changing those things to be how you want them to be. Acceptance, therefor, is not merely a mental attitude – it is also physical action. This point is actively practiced in the dojo. How? …When the opponent strikes, you can either resist rigidly (reject/fight against the challenge) or flow with and yield to the strike (acceptance) while instantly countering with your own attack (action). Therefor acceptance isn’t strictly a mind state, in the same way that flexibility isn’t strictly a physical attribute. In using the example of a challenger striking, we have epitomised both physical acceptance (flowing with the attack), and the mental flexibility (overcoming the challenger without ego or rigidity in thought).

    By harmonising both the physical (Karate) and philosophical (Judaku-Do) aspects, you will thus develop the tools necessary to come to terms with any and all challenges in life and ultimately overcome them.

    View the classes available and plan your first free lesson!
