Jujutsu - Perfect Self Defense for Women & Men

There are many self-defense systems that have been cobbled together from various martial arts styles. While these systems may be good at showing useful techniques, at Japanese Martial Arts Center, we feel it’s important to teach you not only technique but mindset.


Self-Defense for Women and Men

At Japanese Martial Arts Center in Ann Arbor, we teach and train in Nihon Jujutsu. Similar to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, traditional Nihon Jujutsu utilizes a variety of effective strikes, holds, locks, chokes, as well as different falling and throwing techniques for overcoming an opponent.

At its root, Nihon Jujutsu means “Japanese flexible technique.” Learning the moves is one thing, but you also have to understand the significance of each move. Studying and training Nihon Jujutsu allows you to not only learn the basic fighting moves but helps get you into the mindset for personal improvement and empowerment.

Jujutsu Self-Defense Training Isn’t About Winning A Fight

While it can be a rush to feel like a powerful lethal badass, Nihon Jujutsu martial arts training at JMAC goes beyond that. Training develops the mind as well as the body. It prepares you to deal with multiple situations in life – not just the scenarios of possibly injury or harm. The best way to win a fight is to not fight one at all. The best outcome for any confrontation is to avoid the situation.

This isn’t only true if you’re at a bar or walking alone along some under-lit sidewalk. Arguments, personal disagreements, conflicts at work – you can learn how to diffuse or avoid personal confrontations that don’t require punches and kicks. Jujutsu and self-defense training at JMAC allow you to grow mentally as well as physically.

Training at JMAC teaches you not only fundamentals and fighting techniques but allows you to learn discipline and develop the mind and spirit as well as the body.
