jujitsu in vaughan

At Millennium Martial Arts in Vaughan, Ontario

we teach Yoshin Ryu Jujitsu, which  incorporates techniques from various arts such as: Judo, Savate and Karate. The basic techniques taught  to the beginners is to learn self  defense. The student is taught basic kicks, punches, blocks, throws, pins, locks and the "lever technique", meaning the use of leverage rather then power or brute force. In our Jujitsu classes we teach you how to effectively disable a larger, stronger attacker. Used properly, Jujitsu or Jiu Jitsu is a form of fitness, coordination, discipline and self defense. Our classes are traditional which means that when our students are ready, having acquired all the necessary knowledge for that belt they are required to grade.

Yoshin Ruy Jujitsu was founded by Akiyama Shirobi Yoshitoki in 1723. Akiyama used the concept of JU (supple/gentle) from the Willow branches he was observing, which were yelding and allow the heavy snow to fall off in opposition to the stiff branches of the Oak tree that began to break under the weight of the snow. Akiyama decided to name his style of Jujitsu (Gentle Art) "YoShin Ryu Jujitsu" or (Willow Heart School/Willow Spirit Style) which is based on the pliability of the willow tree and its ability to bend under force rather than break.

Traditional jujitsu uses an attacker's movement and energy against them; JU meaning  "soft controls hard"

Very broadly and generally speaking, an art that ends with the suffix "Jitsu" refers to the one of the battlefield arts of the samurai. This is where the words  "Bujitsu" (Martial Art) and "Budo" (Martial Way) come from.  Bujitsu, or Martial Art, is one that has application in the warfare of the feudal period of Japan.
A "Budo" is an art that is more concerned with moral development, aesthetic form and physical fitness, all in that order.
