How to win by giving in the art of jiu-jitsu in Buende
Learn how to use the attacker's power against himself.
Jiu-Jitsu was already recognisable in basic ideas in the 4th century in competitions at the Chinese Imperial Court.
In contrast to other fights like the Greek wrestling, it was usually not the big, strong athletes who won the fight, but apparently smaller and weaker fighters who skilfully used the opponent's power by simple tricks. The basic principle is to give in in order to win.
Jiu-Jitsu the gentle art
The principle of giving-in can already be seen in the name Jiu-Jitsu, which means "the gentle art". The goal of the fighter is not to win by direct damage to the opponent and by force against force, but to avert the danger and give the attacker the opportunity to think about his misconduct. Thus the power of the attacker is directed against himself.
The best possibility, however, is to avoid a fight. In order to react skillfully and spontaneously in a fighting situation and to avoid the actions of the opponent effectively, it requires a unity of mind and body through an inner balance and calm.
Regardless of whether an opponent is armed or not, jiu-jitsu aims to render the attacker harmless as efficiently as possible without much effort. This can take the form of punching, kicking, throwing, levering, pushing or strangling techniques.
At our martial arts school, children and adults learn these techniques in small groups without risking injury. Each student is dealt with individually in order to achieve fast learning success. The focus is on the balance, which plays a special role in Jiu-Jitsu.
