Jiu Jitsu Classes in Illinois

Jujutsu is a Japanese close-combat martial art. The main purpose of jujutsu is to defeat an armored opponent without a weapon, or with a short weapon. Students are taught to use the force of an opponent against themselves. Through pins, joint locks and throws, students are taught ways to take the momentum of an opponent and use it to their advantage.

Throwing techniques are taught to all students, and training involves both throwing and breaking a fall. There are few striking techniques practiced in Jujutsu, although some school teach some striking. In addition to practicing grappling techniques, students also learn weapons techniques.
