Atemi Ryu Jujitsu
Atemi Ryu Jujitsu follows the Japanese tradition of preparing for 'combat'
in the most diverse and realistic way possible. The difference between
Atemi Ryu Jujitsu and other Jujitsu systems, is that we prepare for the
street, not the dojo or the ring.
A fundamental of Japanese Jujitsu is working from a standing position
so maximal options are available. While we prepare for the possibility of
the need to respond to an attacker from the ground, we work to avoid it.
Being on the ground commits all resources to a single attacker. From a
standing position it is possible to defend against a single attacker or a
Most martial arts assume there will only ever be one attacker. Atemi Ryu
Jujitsu prepares for multiple simultaneous attacks. On the street, there is
no referee. The only prize you get is going home alive.
Why Study Japanese Jujitsu
Japanese Jujitsu works from a standing position but can as easily work
on the ground. It doesn't specialize on any position, stance or lock.
