Ju Jitsu originated in Japan back in the 1500′s as method of close quarters hand to hand combat when weapons were not usable. It was taught from generation to generation and utilized throwing, grappling, trapping, joint locks and choke holds. In modern times Japanese JuJitsu is used in Sport JuJitsu competitions worldwide. Mr Marinoble is a World JuJitsu Champion and has coached the USA JuJitsu Team to several World Championships
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was developed by the Gracie family as a variation of standard Japanese Ju Jitsu. This involved applying more technique and leverage to the system and using it to counter other martial arts systems. We have several Gracie Jiu Jitsu practitioners and we train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu on a regular basis.
