What is Taijutsu?

Taijutsu 体術 is a Japanese blanket term for any combat skill, technique or system of martial art using natural body movements that are described as an empty-hand combat skill or system.

Our Taijutsu classes are a blend on striking (Daken Taijutsu), Throwing (Nage Waza), Joint Locks (Ju-taijutsu), Ground Fighting (Ne Waza), and simple hand weapons such as knife or baton.

Taijutsu is a non-competitive art designed for self-defense and lacks much of the flash seen in modern sportive styles. Instead, it focuses on efficient movements, timing, and off-balancing techniques to disable an attacker with minimal effort.

Taijutsu’s broad collection of techniques and concepts makes it ideal for the modern warrior. A skilled practitioner can adapt his strategy to any scenario on the fly and respond with the best answer to get home safe and sound at the end of the day.
