Jiushin Ryu Jujutsu
School of the True Ideals of Yawara (Jiu-jitsu)
Jiushin Ryu 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 Ryu. The system is open to all sources, regardless of whether it’s judo, BJJ, wrestling, kickboxing, etc.
Grappling-only training is included as an essential way for developing and sharpening grappling skills; this is also true for striking. Jiushin Ryu Jujutsu also includes methods and techniques that make use of the jujutsugi (uniform). However, the system does not rely heavily on the jujutsugi. 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 Ryu 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 and friendly environment.
