Originally devised by the samurai as an empty-handed means of defense against an armed enemy, Ju-Jitsu has developed into a practical art. Cultivating mind, body and spirit, Ju-Jitsu combats the stress of modern society and strengthens personal health and character. This book introduces Ju-Jitsu, its philosophy, and history; advises on how to get started; explains dojo etiquette, how to warm up and down, and how to prevent and treat injuries; describes basic techniques with clear instructions, such as break-falling, stances, blocking, striking, locking, kicking, and punching; and gives rules of competition.
