Vee (Stand Up) Jiu-Jitsu [ 6 - Adult ]
Jiu Jitsu is the earliest known Japanese combination of karate and judo. From Jiu Jitsu several arts have emerged: Judo, in which the kicks, blocks, punches were eliminated, but falls, throws, locks were emphasized; two man sets and competitions were included. Karate, in which throws, falls, locks were eliminated, but kicks, blocks, punches were taught, and forms and sparring competitions included. Aikido, in which obvious strikes, kicks, were not included; no sparring, no competitions in the curriculum - but redirection throws, falls, locks comprised a majority of the teaching. Lately, a phenomenon known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has become popular, which included much competitive grappling. We teach a version of Jiu Jitsu known as VeeJitsuJiu Jitsu, made popular by Professor Florendo Macalruz Visitacion, and that some call 'stand up jiu jitsu' because competitive grappling is not included. The ground work taught in this course, for the safety of the combatants, is not allowed in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions.
How can jiu jitsu help me?
Many people every ear suffer serious injury simply because they have not learned how to fall to the ground safely, when the unexpected occurs. You learn various methods of negotiating a sudden fall. You, of course, also learn how to throw effectively from various positions. You practice on each other because you are taught how to fall first. You learn close quarter self defense including what are known as pressure points, joint manipulation, and escapes from various holds. You find that size and strength, while not bad to possess, does not necessarily determine that you are at the mercy of someone who has more.
You will be introduced to five mugging defenses: defense against rear grab under the arm, rear grab over both arms, frontal headlock, bear hug, and yoke. If you are not studying taekwondo, you will be introduced to the front kick, side kick, round house kick, and back kick; the rising block, single arm block, and double arm block. You will learn the left side and right side forward and backward rollout, both low and high. You will learn the break falls: face, left side, right side, and back, both low and high. 'Break' falls are taught to be used when you do not have time to do the preferable rollout.
You will be introduced to defenses vs some knife attacks: overhead strikes, neck slashes, frontal stabs, and yoke work. You will learn some disarms for both knives and guns. No, you will not become impervious to injury or bulletproof, but you will learn that every situation is not hopeless.
