PCYC Redcliffe


As a classical fighting art in Japan, Ju Jitsu can be defined as: 'a method of close combat, either unarmed or employing weapons, that can be used in defensive or offensive ways, to subdue one or more unarmed or armed opponents'. A simple translation of the two Japanese characters is Ju: gentleness, suppleness, flexibility, yielding; and Jutsu: (often spelt and pronounced jitsu) art, technique, or skill.
In more modern times since the late 1800s and early 1900s and with the introduction of Ju Jitsu to the Western World the focus shifted towards emphasizing Ju Jitsu as a gentle art, a system of self defence, and a system of physical education. Notable forms of endeavour that developed from Ju Jitsu during these times include both Judo and Aikido. 
Ju jitsu around the world is practised by all ages from children to seniors both men and women. Ju Jitsu truly can be a lifelong activity. 
Today there are commonly three forms of Ju Jitsu from which you may choose to participate. 
  • Sport - Although Australia does not have a strong sporting platform for Ju Jitsu, there is a an opportunity for advanced students both individual and team competition at, national and world levels. Go Rin Pou focuses on the art and the self defence aspects but many of our students compete in Judo, Karate and BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-jitsu) or Submission Grappling. ( We usually win ! ) 
  • Self Defence and Awareness - ideal for those seeking to develop their level of confidence and a basic knowledge and ability to protect themselves in today's society. 
  • The Total Martial Art - for the more serious participant, seeking grading and promotion. Your learning may include: skills in avoidance and evasive movement, throwing, striking, grappling, immobilization techniques, the application of submission holds, and the practice of both Ju Jitsu and weapon kata (sets of movements). Students of all ages are coached in etiquette, discipline, posture and the coordination of mind, body and spirtit. 
Ju Jitsu may also provide an appreciation of anatomy, physiology, human movement and health.
