Jiushin KAN Jujutsu
the True Ideals of Yawara (Jiu-jitsu)
Jiushin Kan Jujutsu is a complete jujutsu (jiu-jitsu) system. It consists of both striking and grappling.
Through their years of training in different styles of modern and old school jujutsu, cross-training in other arts and styles, travelling, learning and teaching, the Bajada brothers have always sought the true essence of the art.
Historically speaking, the old jujutsu schools (koryu) were not limited by style boundaries, but made use of the best possible methods and techniques that their circumstances allowed. They were truly mixed martial arts schools and complete systems. This is one of the core principles of Jiushin Kan Jujutsu. The system is open to all sources, regardless of whether it’s judo, BJJ, wrestling, kickboxing, etc.
Jiushin Kan Jujutsu follows an official curriculum which is the result of rigorous study and consideration. The curriculum serves as general guide and fundamental base. It has been purposely tailored to keep the system open for the best possible methods and techniques and for unlimited progression. It also consists of an adequate number of techniques while maintaining the importance of technical versatility and advocating quality over quantity.
Grappling-only training is included as an essential way for developing and sharpening grappling skills; this is also true for striking. Jiushin Kan Jujutsu consists of both jujutsugi (uniform, commonly referred to as "gi") and no-gi training. It includes methods and techniques that make use of the gi. However, it does not rely heavily on the gi, even when training in the gi. This is to retain maximum efficiency for self-defence and real confrontations.
The importance of randori (sparring) is emphasized to develop the mindset and technical proficiency needed to apply techniques against fully-resisting opponents. The system has been tested and validated in professional MMA (mixed martial arts) competition.
Jiushin Kan Jujutsu is a modern jujutsu system that continues to evolve with the times, and is paired with budo (way of martial arts) values and etiquette – all this in a safe, controlled and friendly environment.
