Ju Jitsu

Ju Jitsu was developed to combat the samurai of feudal Japan as a method for defeating an armed and armored opponent in which one uses no weapon, or only a short weapon.

Because striking against an armored opponent proved ineffective, practitioners learned that the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy took the form of pins, joint locks, and throws.

These techniques were developed around the principle of using an attacker's energy against him, rather than directly opposing it.

There are many variations of the art, which leads to a diversity of approaches. In addition to Ju Jitsu, many schools teach the use of weapons (Kobudo).

Today, Ju Jitsu is practiced in both traditional and modern sport forms.

Derived sport forms include the Olympic sport and martial art of judo, which was developed by Kanō Jigorō in the late 19th century from several traditional styles of Ju Jitsu, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which was derived from earlier (pre–World War II) versions of Kodokan judo.

Kobudo (or Kobujitsu)

Nunchaku

Nunchaku

The nunchaku is a traditional Okinawan martial arts weapon consisting of two sticks connected at one end by a short chain or rope.

Modern-day nunchaku can be made from metal, wood, plastic or fibreglass. Toy and replica versions made of polystyrene foam or plastic are also available.

Possession of this weapon is illegal in some countries, except for use in professional martial art schools.

Tonfa

Tonfa

The tonfa also known as tong fa or tuifa, is a melee weapon best known for its role in the armed component of Okinawan martial arts.

It consists of a stick with a perpendicular handle attached a third of the way down the length of the stick, and is about 15–20 inches long.

Bo Staff

A bō is a very tall and long staff weapon used in Okinawa and feudal Japan.

Bō are typically around 1.8 m (71 in) long and used in Japanese martial arts, in particular bōjutsu.

Sai

Sai

The sai is a traditional weapon used in Okinawa.

The basic form of the weapon is that of a pointed, prong shaped metal baton, with two curved prongs (yoku) projecting from the handle (tsuka).

There are many types of sai with varying prongs for trapping and blocking.

Jo Staff

A jō is an approximately 1.27-metre (4.2 ft) wooden staff, used in some Japanese martial arts.

The martial art of wielding the jō is called jōjutsu or jōdō.

Today, the jō is still used by some Japanese police forces.

Katana

Katana

Historically, katana were one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were used by the samurai of feudal Japan.

The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands.

Kama

Kama

The kama is a traditional Filipino and Japanese farming implement similar to a sickle used for reaping crops and also employed as a weapon.

Escrima

Escrima

Escrima sticks, or Baston, are typically constructed from rattan, an inexpensive stem from a type of Southeast Asian vine.

Hard and durable yet lightweight, it shreds only under the worst abuse and does not splinter like wood, making it a safer training tool.

This aspect makes it useful in defense against blades.

Sport Nunchaku

Kata

A kata is when you perform basic nunchaku techniques arranged in dance like moves, as fluently and perfectly as possible.
These techniques are aimed at an imaginary opponent.
The purpose of a kata is to get a better understanding of the techniques.
Studying a kata does not only mean learning the techniques, but also how to properly perform a technique.
Many of the katas we perform at Sport Nunchaku derive from the WNA (World Nunchaku Association) and ITNA (International Techno Nunchaku Association)

Freestyle

Freestyle nunchaku is a more visually stunning, rather than combative way.
Freestyle Nunchaku competitions are now held throughout the year, marks are awarded based upon visual display.
Freestyle competitions are based and judged on the following:
→ Pace and rhythm of the nunchaku
→ Consistency of speed
→ Variation in techniques
→ Control and movement
→ Showmanship and entertainment
→ The use of one and two nunchaku
→ Unique nunchaku techniques
→ Dropping the nunchaku
→ Time span of the freestyle

Application

Nunchaku application is all about manipulating the nunchaku.
It is used to perform blocks, locks, throws and take down techniques on another person.
As you advance up the syllabus the techniques like any other style of martial art become more complicated.

Combat

Also within sport nunchaku is the sport of 'Combat Nunchaku'.
This is another competitive side to the art.
Two competitors stand and fight opposite each other wearing safety protective helmets and groin guards.
There are competitions all over the world.

Tricks and Freestyle

Tricks or feestyle are also performed on each belt, the higher the belt the more difficult the trick or routine.
Children particularly enjoy learning tricks because it builds confidence, promotes expression and most of all is FUN!
