Bushin Ryu Taojitsu is a modern martial art that focuses on practical, efficient techniques as derived from Japanese unarmed combat and self-defense techniques of Jujitsu, Aikido and Aikijujitsu. Students will learn escapes, holds, joint locks, throws and striking techniques. These techniques were developed around the principle of using an attacker's energy against him, rather than directly opposing it.
Jujitsu is practiced by men and women both young and old. It is a highly effective method of self-defense and a great way to stay healthy and in touch with all aspects of your being.
