Predecessor of Judo and precursor of lately’s ultimate fighting styles, Jujitsu is a martial art developed by the elite samurai class right through Japan’s feudal days. For centuries, this method of unarmed self-defense proved such a success in combat that it used to be kept secret and taught to a make a choice few.
Based at the creator’s study with instructors of the Tokyo police department, this book features the traditional techniques of Jujitsu, sometimes called Ju-Jutsu. Chapter by chapter, it addresses and demonstrates Kaisho Goshin Budo Taiho Jitsu Ryu (Tokyo police/self defense/martial way/body techniques). Specific techniques covered include using hands, throwing an opponent, attacking vital points with strikes and kicks and using weapons such as the personnel.
