More About Japanese Jiu-Jitsu by Darrell Max Craig
 
 
 
Overview
With extensive, step-by-step photographs and instructions, this jiu-jitsu guide is an efficient tool for mastering this ancient martial art.

The original Japanese martial art developed by the elite samurai class during Japan's feudal era, Jiu-jitsu is the forerunner of Judo and the precursor of today's ultimate fighting styles, such as mixed martial arts (MMA). For centuries, this method of unarmed self-defense proved so successful in combat that it was kept secret and taught only to a select few.

Based on the author's study with instructors at the Tokyo police academy, this martial arts book presents all the traditional techniques of Jujitsu, also known as Jiu-jitsu. These methods teach you valuable restraining methods that force your opponent to submit without abuse by using pressure points. It shows you tips for search and seizure, and the almost extinct art of Hojojutsu--how to tie people up without using any knots.

Japanese Jiu-jitsu: Secret Techniques of Self-Defense addresses and demonstrates the full range of Kaisho Goshin Budo Taiho Jitsu Ryu (Tokyo police self-defense).

Learn specific techniques such as:

  • The use of hands
  • Throwing an opponent
  • Attacking vital points with strikes and kicks
  • The use of weapons (like the staff).

  • This fascinating Jiujitsu book was designed as a training manual and serves as a remarkable illustrated guide to the secret art of Japanese samurai self-defense.
