What is Kumo Jiu jitsu?
Kumo Jiu Jitsu is a very well-rounded self-defense fighting style that is adaptable and effective in any situation.
History of Jiu jitsu
Jiu Jitsu is an ancient martial art style that dates back hundreds of years to feudal Japan. The Samurai were the most respected and feared of all warriors of that time. Although the Samurai favoured the sword and bow and arrow, when they lost their weapons, they needed something to protect themselves against their enemies.
The Kumo Jiu jitsu Style
Keeping true to the traditions of the past, but still recognizing the new dangers of today, Kumo Jiu Jitsu prepares an individual to defend themself in virtually any situation. Kumo Jiu Jitsu will teach you to use the various parts of your body for striking (punches, kicks, knees, elbows, etc), joint locking techniques that attack the weaker points of your opponent’s body, the use of pressure points, clinching, off balancing techniques, takedowns, throws, and grappling techniques to control and subdue your opponent while on the ground.
