Ju-Jitsu originated on the battlefields of ancient Japan, and is the system from which the present-day martial arts of judo, karate and aikido have developed. It is an ideal combination of self-defence skills and fitness training. Eddie Ferrie traces the history of this absorbing martial art before discussing a huge repertoire of techniques, designed for every level of ability, from basic to advanced. With the aid of over two hundred photographs and line-drawings the author explains the use and application for self-defence of blocks, punches, kicks, locks, strangles as well as less well-known moves.
