Jiu-Jitsu is originally a Japanese art of self-defence. Jiu-Jitsu means the soft and gentle art. Referring to the martial art: the opponent is not resisted with pure body strength. However, submission on the attacker is achieved as efficiently as possible. To achieve this, attention is paid to many different techniques: clamping, hits, punches, kicks, strangles and throws. The physically stronger opponent is overcome by yielding. This makes the sport suitable for both men and women.
